Heading Home

Ok...I finally have some solid info on what is happening. I'm leaving Iraq this weekend and will make my way to DC by Monday.

That's the only solid info I have so far. However the further plans as of right now are to stay in DC for two days and then fly to LA on Thursday. Go to LSU-Arizona game on Saturday the 9th...whooohooo....GEAUX TIGERS!!! Spend a couple of weeks in LA and then drive my car back up to DC. I'll then work in the DC office until the end of October while waiting for a contract that we bid on back in Iraq.

If we win it, I'll head back to Iraq. If we don't win it, they will look for a position for me in DC at either the Pentagon or one of the military bases in the area. If that doesn't work out then I'll explore other options.

I'm actually looking forward to my time home...I was almost at a point that if something would have worked out here I would have been a little disappointed.

Obviously, a lot is still up in the air, so I will definitely hang on to Jer 29:11 during the next two months!

COOL! We will see you on Saturday for sure then. Dean works the Coca Cola Tail gate party, the tent is located across the street from Alec Box Stadium, you know how there is a big parking lot and then further down an open are where lots of people tail gate? Well the coca cola tent is big, red and white so make sure and come by.

Shane,

If you have some time on your drive from LA to DC, stop by the Northern Neck and take some time to cruise out to the Chesapeake Bay as well as the Rappahannock. It would be good to catch up with you.

Too bad you can't make it home in time to watch the Ragin Cajuns slap around the tiggers!!

Have a safe trip back.
