LJ from jersey checkin in. Would you east coasters be driving our or trailering? 2 weeks might a be a bit much for me at the moment but this trip is definitely worth it. Kind of killing two birds with one stone, traveling out west, and wheeling the rubicon! I'll definitely be following along with the thread and hoping I can some how make it along.

Do you know what your AFSC is going to be. My tech school was only 6 weeks of job training so everything after joining was pretty quick.
Not sure, they've changed it to where you're put into an aptitude area, and you get a specific job in basic. I'm in the mechanical aptitude area, maintenance is in my future. I want to get into one of the newer airframes, or a new system so if I decide to get out early I'll be able to get a job pretty easily.
I'm still not sure if I'm going to do a full 20 years, or only 4.
I came in open mechanical and selected a few aircraft maintenance jobs and vehicle maintenance in basic and ended up becoming a Vehicle operator. I love it but I will say it's the least mechanical job your'll find. So be careful with going in open mechanical.

I wish I had gotten to know some of you better when I was stationed in 29 Palms. I'd have been at the Hammers to learn from you Art every trip. I'd walk there if I had to. I'd love to jump on this trip too if I can coordinate with school and family. I'd like to get to know a lot of you guys better. I have that trail book too. Pulled it out for nostalgia's sake the other day. This trip will be sweet if I can swing it.

This trip sounds awesome, but it is one year early for my schedule! Good luck and I look forward to hearing how it goes.
