Yes, as the title suggests, I have made my way over here to live until the USMC sends us packing once again. I drove alone across NC, SC, GA, MISS, AL, LA, TX, NM, and finally Arizona. Somewhere along those lines, I touched Mexico for a mere second; as I believe highway 20 is the border in some places. Chris liked to disagree with this statement. I KNOW it's true though because I drove it, he did not. He took safe highway 40/Route 66, how utterly boring. I finally arrived after 35:30 hours of driving and only two hotel stays and places to eat as well as countless gas stops which became restroom breaks/food/gas all in one because I was determined not to spend anymore time away from Chris. The drive was not a complete bore. I jammed to XM radio, listened to FOXNEWS, and tried to find some local stations along the way. I did have the comedy channel on for a bit, but eventually that became too vulgar for my tastes.
