You are making this sound way too easy. Trust the Marine Corps to throw a curve or two....
Taking a car AND the bike would be awesome, but I'm coming over unaccompanied so the bike would take out a lot of my HHG allowance.
I'm being told that housing does not require unaccompanied officers to live on base. I like the idea of staying out in town, to be able to soak in as much as I can and maximize language learning (full immersion, yeah!) I'm a FAO, would love to add another language to my toolkit.
