SD, CA & UH-1Y "Venom"


It's official!

WE'LL BE LIVING IN SAN DIEGO AND NATHANIEL IS FLYING THE UH-1Y "Venom" HUEY!!!

He is over the moon about his helicopter. And I'm over the moon about where we'll be living!

For the first time, he'll be doing exactly what he wants and we'll be living exactly where we want to live! Not that there's anything wrong with Jacksonville, NC. But given the two - (and bear in mind that we've already lived in Eastern NC), we were hoping for Sunny So Cal.

We're still in a bit of shock over it all... He'll be getting winged on the 24th of October, and we think that we'll be moving during the first week of November. Nothing is for sure though, except for the location of our move, what Nate will be flying, and the winging date. We'll get the details of our move sometime early next week.

So for now, I'm signing off. (Ahem). A Florida gal for now, but a California gal in the near future. And I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Nate & Marit- Congratulations! That is so awesome! I have some friends out there if you need folks to ride with. I'll send you their names and cc them on an email.

California just got another great athlete.

Nate - some of my buddies are at 29 Palms and Pendelton. Pendelton guys are coming back from over seas soon.

Cat said...

i'm SO psyched that you guys get to go where you truly wanted to be. : )
and psyched for me that this means (hopefully?) we can periodically make the drive to train together.
YEAH!

Marit!!! SO excited for you guys! I know what it's like to be waiting on the edge of your seat for billet assignments (ugh) and SO stoked it worked out for you guys!!!

I live down near Balboa Park--there are a lot of Tri Club San Diego rides/track/swims that happen up in North County so you are ALL set!!
