After one tour is up, do you always move somewhere else? And do you ever go back to someplace you've already been?

 

I mean (perish the thought), could they assign you to Kodiak for ANOTHER two years?

If that happens, I bet we'll be seeing Jeff and Trudy's mug shots on the national news. :lol

back to back overseas tours only really happen when someone asks for them.

 

They could transfer you back to someplace you have already been, sure. Like I could go back to Boston, etc. As long as there is a position open at your present rank.

I'm getting the picture that if Jeff was reassigned to Kodiak for two more years retirement might start looking pretty darn good....

Is Kodiak considered overseas?

I think anything outside the contiguous united states is considered overseas, isn't it?

no concern, they just don't do it. AK and HI are not eligible for prime.

Seems 99.9% of companies who offer free shipping to ANY US address, exclude AK and HI even if it is not written in the fine print.

Hell, it seems like 50% of people don't even know that AK is part of the US

Do you think that once it has to cross water it's a whole 'nuther ball game?

 

if it makes you feel better a huge number of people don't know New Mexico is a state either. That's why they made their license plates say "New Mexico USA"

Well I found out for Trudy that Dyson does ship to Alaska on their F&F offer.

Wonder if there is a limit on the number of Dysons to be shipped to Kodiak....

I might be able to get all the wives together and we can just start at one end of town with some really long extension cords :lol

Y'all could get in the Guinness Book of World Records doing that.

 

How're the pups doing? Do we get some more pictures of the house and environs?

He spent over 3 years there before he transferred to NY and never ate out in Boston.

And I got more snow there than we did where we were in NY. We weren't actually IN the snowbelt of NY - just below it.

 

Wow...I had no idea® ! Before my days as a GTer, I guess.

 

Um....never ate at a restaurant in Boston? With the CG station steps away from some great Italian restos? :blink: :blink: :blink: The commissary must have been top notch! :lol :lol

no commissary there in Boston. I lived an hour away in Nashua NH, so when I left the ship I headed north quickly before I hit the traffic rush.

 

Ah, okay, that makes sense!

 

I know you prob. won't get back here to Boston what with the taxes through the roof and the weather not being what you're looking for (despite the heat wave we're in the middle of right now!) . But, it would be cool for GT command to be so close by.

This place is just full of surprises - always something new.

 

Earlier this week, I was the reason for somebody wanting to kill themselves. Well, both Jeff and I as the mean, nasty, whiny, bitchy NYers, but since I was the one on the phone, it was my fault. Welcome to Kodiak, I'm going to kill myself because of you.

 

Yesterday, we went to the bank to get cash from the ATM. Ummm.... the bank doesn't have an ATM :lol Guess we won't be opening an act with them as I might actually like my money at times they are not open.

 

 

There is a rocket launch today at the other end of the island. I might head that direction to check it out since it is kind of cloudy/overcast, so not likely I'll be able to see it from the house.

Taxes were much worse in NY.

Not that you have time or anything, but I hope that you are keeping a diary of sorts about your adventures in Kodiak. It has all of the makings for a good book. Something like..."If You Think You're Having a Bad Day....Try Living on Kodiak Island"

 

Just a suggestion :lol
