I got notified that I will be leaving Dyess AFB in Abilene TX, to go to Osan AB in South Korea for a year! And after that I get a base of preference, meaning I fill out a list of where I want to go, and I have priority.
The sad part is, my family is 2.5 hours away and I would always come home once a month to see them. And I have some awesome friends here that I'm leaving behind.
Another sad part, no more brewing for a while. But it just dawned on me that while in Korea, I can still do 2 gal PM batches. I believe I still have 2 of the Mr Beer fermenters around here, at least I hope. If not I'm sure I can find some somewhere. I'll just have to have my family/friends ship me the grains, DME and dry yeast.
So yeah, very excited, but a little sad at the same time.
