And so it begins.....

The Adventure begins!

All of the preparations leading up to our move have been many things: time consuming, stressful, chaotic, interesting, & altogether, not bad, but Friday, the fun really began. We left on our multi-day trip to Germany! We headed to St. Louis where we picked up our rental car. Due to franchising issues, it was much less expensive to rent from there than our own state. We had a whirlwind time there in about 18 hrs, then left this morning for our next stop.

This was the best I could do while riding in the car! We've been to the top before. The ride up = terrifying!

Today was our first time in Indiana. I was surprised by all of the farmland, though I dont really know what I was expecting. Their state roads are absolutely horrible! It was a really bumpy ride. Other than that, it really was beautiful. Tonight we are in Ohio, and all I can say about it so far is that its been rainy, as in torrential downpour rainy, since we entered the state.

Looking forward to tomorrow and the next leg of our journey!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hello AF wives! It is so wonderful to be able to connect with other military spouses and have a support network. So happy you both found my blog! =)

I also found you via Ann Marie's mil spouse community. I've been living in Germany for 7 years and we're getting ready to head back to the states (California). Good luck on your trip over! You'll love it! They have fabulous wine over here. :)

I'm originally from Indiana, btw. Yes, the roads are HORRIBLE!

In reply to your comment:
Geilenkirchen is about 2 hrs 45mins away from Ramstein. It's actually a NATO base that has about 600 AF and 10 Navy stationed there. The rest are other nationals or civilian contractors. The closest bases to GK are actually Army posts across the German border in the Netherlands.
We have many friends stationed at Ramstein ro Spangdhalem... they love it there!
