Well as the month of October comes to a close we are quickly approaching the end to our time at Fort Leonard Wood. Dan has officially started Sapper school; 30 days of hooah training in the woods. While he is gone it is up to me to coordinate the shipping of his truck to Alaska, attending moving briefs, organize our home and separate anything we may want from the remainder of our household goods before the packers arrive. After that has finished I can work on closing out our house here in Waynesville. Moving is always more work than anticipated.

However, when we have loaded up the Outback we'll head west to the mountains of Colorado to celebrate Thanksgiving. The holiday will immediately be followed by a trip to Michigan and then the long drive to the Pacific Northwest. We are looking forward to our time back in Seattle/Tacoma as a chance to visit those we left behind last winter. After we've visited and said our goodbyes once again we will board the ferry in Bellingham for our 6-1/2 day ride to Whittier, AK. But before we get there Dan has to graduate Sapper school and I've got lots to do...
