New Digs

I do not have much time left in Afghanistan and for the most part, I will be finishing up my time living at FOB Al Masaak.  Although I won’t be here for long, I decided to make it a little more comfortable then just a big open tent.

I sectioned off the back 1/3 of the tent to give me a private office/sleeping area.  I then built a short stub wall to provide a small partition for my sleeping area.  I had considered fully enclosing it, making two separate rooms, but building materials are not plentiful here so it was best to conserve.  That is also why I am using a table and an old Army field desk versus making a work station.

It isn’t as nice as what we built at Apache, but it will do for the next few weeks.

    This is such a cool setup, Dan – you’ve made it look soo cosy and welcoming, the perfect space to relax at the end of a stressful day. I hope the remaining days go by quickly for you – do you know where your next ‘home’ is?

      My next home will be my real home back in Minnesota! I will have several stops before I get there – Apache, KAF, Camp Atterbury, Minneapolis & possibly a few more…but it won’t be long & I will be sleeping in my own bed!

    Thanks for your service and wishing you a speedy and safe return home.

  4. You are a man after my own heart. I’m not often away from home, but the first thing I do is arrange my accommodation to suit me.

    Will you keep blogging when you’re home?

    Nice. Is it as spacious as it looks, or is that because everything is in it’s place?

    You’ve made the room look great! Hope it’s okay that I forwarded this entry to one of my brothers near Chicago. He’s very appreciative of US soldiers and their service. So am I.

    Thank you for these great pictures. My brother just finished flight school at Rucker and we know he’ll be headed to the sandbox soon. It’s a great comfort to get some ideas of what that will be like for him. Anyhow, thanks for the great blog! Hope you have a good day!
