I have to make a hotel reservation in Columbia, SC. We need a place for 3(4?) nights or so for CarKiller’s graduation from Basic Combat Training. I hate going on sites and trying to see if the room will be adequate for 6 of us, deciding between a suite and 2 connecting rooms, figuring out where a “good” neighborhood is and how far is too far. One place is a mile from the “main gate” while another is 18 miles but looks nicer. I was in Jackson/Columbia over 25 years ago for only a short while and really only a few times off post, so I really know nothing about the place.
This is no fun! But we HAVE to make reservations now if we can. We’ll be there just before the 4th of July. Quite possibly (probably?) a very busy weekend. There is no time to waste, that’s for sure! I just wish I had more confidence about choosing a place.
While it is not fun to have to try and figure all that stuff out, it is exciting that it’s already time to think about it all. Hard to believe that it was a month ago today that CarKiller left home.
