Playing the odds

We are at the Wal-Mart in Daphne, Alabama, just east of Mobile (map).

We still have not heard anything through official channels about being deployed. But given that most of our trip will be on our own nickel anyway (it will cost us well over $2,000 to drive to California, whereas official reimbursement guidelines limit us to about $450), we decided there was no harm in getting a head start. Tomorrow morning we will check back in with our chapter to see if any word has come through.

In the meantime, we will keep heading west. I expect to be somewhere between Houston and San Antonio tomorrow night.

  1. That's a h*** of a long way to run at your own expense, but it is great that you have the willingness and experience to help out. Not to mention that your roots are in CA. Your help will certainly be appreciated. They'll need a lot for a long time.
