We finally got our corrected orders yesterday, and headed over to Ali Al Salem. Upon our arrival, we found out that checkin for the flight to Bagram started in 10 minutes, perfect timing after nearly a week of waiting. Well after schleping all our bags in, we heard a nice announcment come over the intercom saying our plane decided to go elsewhere.
The tents here are MUCH more crowded, but have marginally better A/C and a cement floor. Facilities are crowded, and I didn’t get hardly any sleep due to needing to get up at O’ dark hundred to check on the flight for today (which promptly got canceled just after dawn), and all the traffic through the tent and vehicles schleping gear around at all hours.
The only upside is I probably get to see Heather tomorow as she pulls into Kuwait from Kwaj (Although given the fact I partially instigated her comming here and the CRC/travel sucks, that might not be such a good idea :-p). She’s lucky, she’ll be working here in Kuwait and is mostly done traveling, I have a ways to go still. One of the guys in the bunk finally got his flight after waiting 5 days.
Some of the other ITT people I encountered apparently know my soon to be supervisor (who’s name I don’t remember) and said he’s a really good guy, which is always positive news.
