Just Woah [End Scene]

Do you remember this post? The one where B got his job and we ranked our top six bases?

On our list was: Georgia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, California and Louisiana.

We found out through ways that we won't discuss (completely at no fault to us) last week that we were stationed. But, we wanted to wait until this week when B was officially told where we were going to say anything.

So where are we going? Georgia? Delaware? California?

No.

Wyoming.



F.E. Warren in Cheyenne, to be exact. A missile base with no runway. In Wyoming.

I'm not going to complain--I'm just going to accept that although the air force said "rank your top 6" and had six good choices but chose somewhere not even relatively close to any of those we ranked, it's not like we can change it. So we're going to Wyoming. And buying a horse (that is the only way to fit in there, right?). I'm also fairly certain I'm going to need more scarves, coats, and gloves.

But I do have one question: is it wrong to name a child Cheyenne if you live in Cheyenne?

I think we'll have to learn how to ski. It's a crime not to know if you live that close to Colorado, right? What is there to do/see in Wyoming or Colorado? Because you can bet we're going to be planning some trips!

The only part I will complain about is that now I'll have to wait 2 hours after everyone else to see my favorite shows :( Geeze I'm a junkie. But, I do worry about being 19 hours from all we've ever known. Georgia was at least a familiar state, and only 9 hours. I drove through Wyoming once when I was 7, and B's never been anywhere out west, and that's basically all our experience with that area. But we'll live :)

Congrats on Wyoming!
I know how ya feel. We ranked our top ones and NY was nowhere close to being on the list.
It is what it is, right?!!

Oh man! Quite a change...maybe you should have listed your top six LEAST wanted places...and then you could have ended up somewhere a little more desirable.

...time to start looking for Wyoming bloggers to befriend. Good luck!

But you're closer to me, my favorite-est pen pal ever! Not that I'm being remotely selfish in this declaration. At all.

(I wish I could be more helpful, so I go for cheap shots hopping to get a laugh, instead)

I'd love Cheyenne! I've been there on vacation before.
If it makes you feel any better, we just found out we received our 8th station choice-- IDAHO!
Feel better?

At least you get to buy a HORSE! I've been begging hubby to get me one :(

Oh the needs of the Air Force and how they outweigh our own :-)

And yep, we will be at the base you asked about. So you can come visit anytime! Wyomming is gorgeous, I bet you guys will enjoy it once you get there!
