This is also my second time here. We spent way more time inside buildings last time, so we’ve seen a lot more of the land and landscape this time around–at least before the rain. Unfortunately, today’s one of those days that we all deal with—but especially if you’re in the military. You have to learn to roll with it. It’s obviously a strange situation, and it sort of put a damper on the day. We wanted to meet and greet more folks than we did today, but it was nice that a couple guys went out of their way to find us during the day. You can definitely tell the hardcore fans. They know what’s going on, and they like to bust your chops about what you did or didn’t do right throughout the year. It’s a lot fun because it makes for good conversation, and that’s why we came here.
There’s no telling what the weather is going to do tomorrow, but hopefully we can get out of here on time, get to our next place, and keep on our scheduled mission of meeting with as many troops as possible.”
