We left this morning in search of the best way to get to the base from here. We ended up finding which ways NOT to go. lol We did do some exploring though including Tom showing us the hotel he stayed in years ago when he came to see his ex. Interestingly enough, we think we saw Justin's flight out back practicing. We got a little excited thinking about getting to see him tomorrow. When we left there we went to the mall nearby and did a little shopping. We found some cool stores that we don't have back home and bought some shirts. After the mall, we went to a mexican restaurant that I had read about on Yelp. Unfortunately it wasn't nearly as good as last night's restaurant. Still it was interesting with great service and low prices. After lunch we headed downtown to the Riverwalk. Walked around the mall down there then back to the car to head back to the hotel. No purchases made there since most of it was a giant tourist trap but at least it was air conditioned. Back to the hotel for the night. Tomorrow we will be leaving here no later than 6am for the 7 am debriefing followed by the Airman's run and then the coin ceremony. Hopefully I will be able to get some good pics and upload them on here. More tomorrow.
