    That's a great place to be. You're in a small community, but you can be in Olympia in 30 minutes and Tacoma in an hour (barring traffic). You can get to downtown Seattle for an event in maybe 1:45 to 2 hours or go the other way to Portland in a little bit less time than that.

    Congrats on your new life, new job and potentially new facial hair.

    Congrats on your job! Chehalis is a good choice and there is plenty of hunting, fishing , recreation close by. You will only be a little over an hour away from the coast as well. Here is a LINK to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife site.

    lol, you know, i probably will, i'll probably keep it trimmed down a little more though to prevent bird nesting and accidental dread locks. thanks for all the comments guys, i can't wait to get on the other side of the country, it's hard being so far away from your family ya know, my new nephew is 6 months old and I still haven't been able to meet him yet. soon though hah.

    Congrats on the job. The next few months of transition from Navy to Civilian will be hard but at least you got the hardest part of finding a job over with.
