Most mornings, I drop my son off at preschool and my daughter and I head on base for a walk. We only live 5 minutes off base, so it is never a big deal. The walking trail we use is 2 miles long, is pretty much a big circle, and runs along 2 pretty busy streets. I actually paid attention this morning and realized how much always goes on! We saw:
-several tents along the trail for the Best Sapper Competition
-MP’s doing training on guys in red, plastic looking, puffy suits. It involved light beating with batons. Quite entertaining considering these guys are usually practicing their golf swing
-a company doing PT
-multiple helicopters overhead
-motorcycles doing their course training to be able to ride on base
-a small convoy
-plus the usual people and a few new ones that I smile and pass every morning.
I guess you get used to everything going on and you don’t think about it, but there is always something going on to entertain!
