Well, I'm out of the Army and in Santa Cruz. Advent did hire me and I start work in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I'm just getting myself established here in SC. The only hitch so far is getting my car registered. I might have to go to Humboldt to do it (only have to smog it once as opposed to every two years here). We'll see.
On my way from North Carolina, I visited a couple of friends and toured three national parks in as many days. I'll put most of the pictures up on my website when I get them developed (today). It was pretty nice being able to see the country which I had been defending. One can easily lose sight of just how much it's really worth it.
