    Help Cannon, AFB in New Mexico?

    Advertisements
    Anyone there?

    DF and I just found out that's his next base. As in JUST, like 20 minutes ago, found out.

    I googled 'Clovis, NM' and it said the top three things for entertainment are the model train museum, 'roller world' and Dairy Queen.

    I'm freaking out.

    The closest big city is 3 hours away?!

    I seriously just want to do this right now:

    I know a place is what you make it, but I feel like this is going to be really hard to 'make' better.

    It's really not that bad. I actually miss it and the small town-ness of it all And no lubbock is an hr, hr and a half away, something like that.

    Four of DH's friends from Germany are now stationed there. I've never heard anything bad from them. We almost ended up there, but got Vegas instead.

    Thanks for the info guys! I'll have to look into Lubbock.

    I hope there are so decent hospitals around, either on base or in town. I'd like to get my nursing career off to a good start

    Hola! Yep, I'm here. There is also Amarillo which is about 100 from here as well.

    My favorite word of advice for Cannon... "This is a people assignment, not a location assignment." I've met some fabulous people here and I really don't mind it so much anymore.

    Ask any questions... I'll try to answer!

    Thanks for the advice, Crystal. I am going to try to keep that in mind as I slowly start thinking rationally again

    My only real question is, how is the healthcare system out there? Is there a nice hospital nearby? A children's hospital?

    Also, what have you heard about East New Mexico University?
