Day 6 Military Challenge

30 Day Military Challenge - Day 6: Post a picture of the base your S.O. is at and tell 5 cool things about this base.
Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California.

  1. The base is huge, so there is a lot of places to go to which make it convenient instead of needing to go off base.
  2. The interstate is so close that we can go to a lot of places off base without having to travel so far.
  3. The base offers quite a few activities and free events
  4. Houses on base are pretty big, especially for the two of us.
  5. There are beaches on base.
One downfall about living out here: Deployments! They are ridiculous. Even trainings. Matt has never deployed or trained so much in his career until we moved out...actually it was within 2 months of moving out here he knew he was deploying and from then on, it's constant training and deploying. Needless to say, as much as we have enjoyed California together (the little amount that we have), we are ready to get out of here so we can catch a break.


  1. Mom and I enjoyed our time with you in California last summer. It is a nice base, good location and great housing. To bad it wasn't closer to home, we miss you. Love Dad

  2. It would be nice if we lived closer to family. Hopefully next year we will be able to request to move back to the East Coast. I enjoyed having you two out here as well!
