We have been in one spot for a little over 2 years and I'm starting to get the itch. The itch to move.
Andy put in an extension to stay in Alaska until next May and it was approved. We didn't want to end up with orders in January and have to try to move during that time of year.
We have always wanted to drive down the Al-Can on our way back to the lower 48. It will be such a beautiful drive! (And probably a very long one with 5 kids in the car!)
So, now the only question is - where will be driving to??
We finally have an answer or sorts. There are 2 possible scenarios. Either:
1. Andy is on the promotion list this year and we go to El Paso, Texas for a year. While I really want him to get promoted, I have to admit that I have absolutely NO desire to move to El Paso. None. It's right on the border of Mexico and frankly out in the middle of nowhere. I'm in the middle of nowhere right now. We could use a bit of culture and I would love to be able to make some road trips without having to drive for days before reaching anything....
If he's not on the promotion list, then we will be headed to Savannah, Georgia next June. Now, that sounds more exciting to me!! I love the architecture and culture in that city. And it is on the coast. Being an island girl, I crave the beach. I've also never been to the East Coast, so I have a lot of traveling I would love to do from there.
