I got the chance to take some training in Boston so I also took leave and got to spend a week with my family. It had been over three months since I last saw them. Also took a trip down to see my parents. Now I am back in England. Four months till I see at least Heather, but hopefully the whole family.
Been here now for one month. Wow that month flew by. If only deployments to the desert went this fast.

- Bought a beater car that will hopefully last till next year when the Rover gets over.
