    What email are you expecting? Go to the AMEDD BOLC web site for the welcome letter, packing list, and so on...

    An 18 hours drive is unsafe.. you should split it up. You will be reimbursed MALT Plus - mileage plus per diem expenses - for your trip. You are authorized (correct me if i'm wrong) 450 miles driving the first day and 350 each subsequent day. You are only reimbursed for this time, however, if you actually take the time to make the drive. You can do it in a day if you want... you're still a civilian

    If you are reporting for USAGPAN then go to D Co 187... Delta Company, 187th Medical Battalion. It's on Gorgas Circle. Go inside and ask for Staff Sergeant Conlon. Wear the proper PT uniform if possible, including reflective belt and white socks with no logo above the ankles.

    Try to get contact info for some of your classmates who will arrive before you and call them for the inside scoop on where to go / what to do, etc...

    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.
    Look up your per diem rate and make sure you're under that. We stayed at a La Quinta because of the decent cost and decent free breakfast. Drury Hotels have a good free breakfast too. I would look at places to rent online now and start calling to line up viewings as soon as you arrive. There is a good rental market here and you should be able to find something within a couple of days if you're on top of it and not tooooo picky..

    I am going to split it up. I plan on driving about 12 hours the first day and then I should have only 6 hours of driving the second day, plus it will let me get there before the 1600 NLT time.

    I have printed the packing list and seen the welcome letter. I was just talking about the email that everyone else keeps saying they are getting welcoming them to BOLC and such. My orders do tell me to report to D Co 187 but doesn't have an address so that is what I was wondering.... thank you for that.

    I have already talked to a realtor and have a couple properties that my wife and I are leaning towards. So I'm hoping to view them the first day or so that I can move in quickly.

    I contacted lodging and they told me that I can stay anywhere as long as it was less than $106/night. I also assumed I was supposed to report in just civilian clothes based on the welcome letter but I could be wrong here as well.

    Thanks for all your help chudder.

    Close, according to the JFTR you have 400 miles per day to travel. With that said it also states that if your trip is more than 800 miles than you should not be able to drive (although I have seen this done plenty of times). Just be careful so that when you go to close your voucher you don't get hit with having to pay for some of the trip yourself. Enjoy the ride and good luck.

    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
    In order to recieve TLE you must have your DA form 31 stamped by housing the first day you arrive, so ensure that this is done. Also try to get the statement of non-availability so that you have no issues when trying to get paid. Due to financial constraints rules that have been looked passed for years are starting to be followed very closely. Good luck.

    Pretty sure no statement of nonavailability is required for San Antonio...

    When will I get a DA form 31? I definitely want to make sure I have everything I need to ensure proper payment. Thanks.

    As an existing service member you will do it before school. If you are a civilian and newly reporting you will not get a DA 31 as your travel will be covered on a 1610, which you will not recieve and may never see as it is done in DTS and will be done for you at school or your first duty station when you submit your travel voucher.

Travel at an average distance of 350 miles per day, and if the remaining distance is 51 miles or more, per diem for an additional day is paid; however, when the total distance is 400 miles or less only 1 day of per diem is allowed (distance as determined from the Defense Table of Distance).
