    You may have been near the firing ranges the marines have down there. Obviously, they have to have a lot of space. Some parts of that area, the roads are worse than SE DC roads.

    They just built a new housing development across from one of the firing ranges and I was like "have fun never being able to sleep and thinking ISIL is attacking" True story: at Lejeune, someone thought the explosions they heard was an ISIL attack.

    I'd love to live in DC. Or Fredericksburg. Stafford is just... Stafford. Lol. We try to make it up to DC at least once a month though. And I'm doing a girls weekend with my sisters after DH's TBS graduation so he can watch the baby.

    Feeling much better about 29 Palms! Now I just want to KNOW so I can start the moving and settling in process!
