    Okay so I got my orders today and my report date is 4 March, which is in like 11 days. I think this is to give me 10 days to look for housing before everyone else gets there 14 March. It doesn't say much else though. So should I contact lodging there where we report to set up temporary lodging while finding housing?

    You can stay wherever you want in San Antonio without getting a statement of non-availability from housing. Just keep your receipts for everything.

    You can use TLE days at your home of record or in San Antonio, if you need to be out of your house for whatever reason

    So I have to pay out of pocket until I find a place to live? If my orders says to report 4 March is there any leigh way on this since it is just to look for housing or do I need to be there on that day?

    You get 10 days TLE for househunting that will reimburse for lodging and per diem... we found our house within two or three days and had the keys a few days later. We camped out in our empty house until our household goods could be delivered.

    I doubt you'll have any luck getting your report date changed.

    Less than a week now everyone! Super excited! Passed my CCRN yesterday and packing today! How are you all doing getting ready? Anybody else flying in on the 28th? If so what time are you arriving? Maybe we can share a taxi?

    Congrats on passing your CCRN!!!...I feel like I have been packing all week! Due to being so busy packing, I have completely stopped working out, which is not good. I can't wait to just get there, and get settled in. My husband and I are driving out to Texas from Northern VA. We are leaving Monday morning!!!!

    Random question for everyone. I received and email a few weeks ago saying to report in the summer PT uniform "including the reflective belt". However, my recruiter told me not to bother buying the reflective belt, because they will make us wear different colored ones while we are there. Has anyone else heard anything about this? I don't want to get attention on the first day, because I failed to follow directions. Yet, I am getting conflicting information. Any advice would be great!!!

    I though we showed up in our civilian clothes and in processed and during that time they would tell us what to put on and where to go. It made me smile thinking of you at the airport with your green belt on though!

    Hahaha that would be funny. Not only would I be waking around like a chicken with my head cut off, but I would have a reflective belt on. I would look like such a nerd LOL.

    Anyway, I went back and read that email again, and I think you are right. It doesn't mention the uniform until later in the email, where it says report back at 2pm to finish in-processing.

    I feel like we have so much info., I'm bound to get something wrong.

    DaniRN421, Enjoy the drive, just did it last JAN from D.C. to Houston. Make sure that you bring some shorts cause you'll be needing them. I spent 4 years at Fort Belvoir, miss the D.C. area.

    So when we report do we report to Building 592, even if we are permanent party and are getting down 10 days early to find lodging? Anyone have any good hotel suggestions that are close to base but won't break the bank. The one on post is $106 a night and I don't really want to pay that much especially considering I have no idea how long I'm gonna have to stay in a hotel, plus it will probably take a while to get reimbursed as well.

    I'm nervous because where I'm permanent party most everything is different. I do look forward to getting down there and getting the process started however.
