We have a popular post where lots of you have added your thoughts about the pros and cons of living on-base or off-base. For the most part the focus there is on off-base housing which is useful for those of you considering that. There are fewer details about on-base issues and opinions although the third and fourth comment do give the on-base life great insight. Last night I got this e-mail and realized we ought to gather more thoughts about what you all experience on-base. Here’s a bit of the e-mail:
I hear that there are a variety of different building types to live in like the towers, single family homes, etc. Is there any specific type of housing that any of you would recommend? We have a 4 year old daughter who loves to run around, so the on base nearby playgrounds are a plus.
So feel free to pipe up with your experience. If you have pictures of the interior and exterior of your base housing I’d happily set up a photo set for us to get an eyeful. You know how much you would have appreciated some photos and commentary so hand them over. I double dog dare you. Send them on to me at email@example.com.
Also pictures of base furniture or issues regarding base furniture are welcome. Like THIS issue. HERE is a set of photos of government furniture. Thanks, Aviva.
Shelly broke the ice for you all. With two days left here she managed to pass on ten inside and outside shots of her house on Kishaba. Shelly, as a thank you I give you an extra set of magical hands to get you through the airports and planes that await you. If only. But really, big stacks of thanks and happy trails.
