Well after a wonderful 20 day leave I am now off to my first duty station. I am not sure how I was granted such a nice place however I am very thankful for the location on the island of Oahu, the third largest island in the Hawaiian island chain. I was planning on leaving on Thursday, January 9th to head down to Dothan, Alabama however due to the big snow storm that happened in Michigan I switched my flight to leave out of Louisville, Kentucky. I was driven down by my Nana (Marcia Roberts, Fathers Mom) and stayed in a hotel till I left at 7:35 am on Thursday morning. I then went to Atlanta, Georgia and then on to Dothan, Alabama.
After arriving in Dothan, Alabama I rode the most expensive 3 mile taxi ride to the hotel. Then Friday, January 10th I rode the expensive taxi back to the airport to leave at 5:34 am (Michigan time – 6:34 am). It had 3 gates however one desk. Was very very small. Now I am in Atlanta, Georgia waiting for the flight to leave at 10:50 am (Michigan time – same). It will be a 10 hour flight to Honolulu, Oahu. however I will be landing at 3:50 pm (Michigan time – 8:50pm) it is a 5 hour difference between Michigan and Oahu.
