Hey ya'll, just thought I'd introduce myself. Some of you may know me from Whiteblaze, I thought I'd come over here for a while--the risk of getting shot down is getting a little large over there. I'm in Austin, Texas and have been hiking a little more seriously in the last year or so--never knew before it was an "organized sport", where I'm from (near Abilene)hinking is what you do when you don't have a horse. Grew up on a cattle farm of less than 2000 acres(has to be over 3000 to be called a "ranch" around those parts), going out to play often meant a trek of quite a few miles and something to build a fire with to cook lunch--whatever didn't run fast enough. Since moving to Austin from Ft. Huachuca in '96, I've been looking for a way to get my back to nature fix and get away from town a little--hinking has fit the bill nicely. Hoping for the AT in '06.
Well, that's me--what about ya'll?

Sarge--I think my husband went to PLDC in El Paso while you were there, is there any way to look it up and see if ya'll ran into each other?

Well I was an instructor there. If I knew what platoon he was in while he was there maybe that would help. And of course his name. I was an instructor in 2nd platoon from Dec 1994 to about march of 1995. Then I was in 1st Platoon for the rest of my time. I did take two breaks from instructing - when I went to DC in October 1995, and when I went to school myself February 1996 to May 1996.

When he gets back from Japan, I'll pin him down on when he did PLDC--I can't remember myself. I do remember partying at a nightclub and doing the mexican polka when his 1st and I went there for the graduation! Fun town, El Paso.
