The room

So I thought I’d post a couple of pics of my room. I’m thankful every day for it, especially since I spend a lot of time living in other camps, in tents and such. Having this place to come home to after being on mission is nice.

First post!

My roomie is Native American. His wife sends a lot of post cards. Pretty sweet stuff.

There it is, the room in all it’s splendor. Wide angle makes it look huge. The whole place is 10 feet by 10 feet.Notice the svelte carpet ($37.99) and lamp ($4.99).

There’s my view. Nice, eh?

Toss some blankets on there.

Here’s the bed. I wanted a blanket to keep the dust off the covers, so I picked one up at the PX, not paying attention to the price. Waiting in line, I finally made it up to the cash register. It turned out to be $47. Ouch. It’s warm at least.

Worse than reflective belts.

Ah yes, the road guard vest; my talisman of safety. We have to wear this sucker everywhere, and they’re even talking about making us wear it in our DCUs, since the peeps who stay in their offices all day are freaks about safety. Nothing says tactical like a bright orange vest. RIDICULOUS! Notice how clean it is since I’m not around very much.
