A Reservist's Tale Of A Tour

Small steps but so much to do…

It’s amazing the number of things that keep cropping up that I need to make sure are looked after before I go “over there” – I realized that my firearms license expires next year, so I have to renew that early. My military ID also expires next year. I’ve got to get things organized for my tenants so that they have someone to call if anything goes wrong. It’s complicated enough owning a rental property halfway across the country, managing it from halfway around the world might be a little more complicated, but I’m sure it’ll be okay. I don’t think that they have any plans to move, so that’s good.

Today I took care of the military ID issue, and I swung into clothing stores at the the Dockyard and figured I’d see about getting my desert boots to start getting them broken in. I got a pair without any problem, but they’ve got to order another pair for for because I’m entitled to two pairs and they only had one pair in my size. They should be in in a week or two. Funny enough, when I got to the counter, the guy saw my name and said “just a moment” – he quickly returned with a huge bin full of CADPAT(AR) kit – desert camouflage. Turns out it was for another person who happens to have the same name and rank as me though, I was a little surprised at first since I hadn’t ordered anything else, I was told that’d be looked after when we get to Gagetown.

The biggest challenge now is wrapping things up with my day job. The nature of what I do means I can’t really start anything new, I’m just basically waiting for some deals in the works to close up and then I will head off to start work up training.
