Sunday, September 25, 2011 rains here...a lot.

 Well, I made it to the beautiful state of Washington and, yes, it does rain here all the time. Of course, half the time you don't even realize it is raining and when you do it doesn't last more than a few minutes. The torrential down pours from back home make this rain look like a misting. The picture left is my home for the next couple of weeks. Just because the mattress can lift up and allow for more space to put your belongings doesn't make it a great idea. I spent a few days constantly chasing my items around the floor because I lifted the mattress and they slid off.        
Think of an old prison movie where the inmates took care of themselves. That's kind of what our barracks look like.

The Beginning

So, Team Hoskinson or at least one member has decided to take a trip to Afghanistan. I have decided to try and record my days through words and photos to better give my loved ones a better idea of what I will be doing in the coming months. The picture is the love of my life. I had a few limited pictures so I just grabbed one for the moment since this is my first entry. I will updating this blog with my adventures in the lovely state of Washington and also during my trials through the less civilized country of Afghanistan. Wish me luck!
