This morning we headed over to Hill AFB so that Michael could get a haircut on base.  He was able to get right into a chair and the woman who cut his hair (and trimmed his beard) did a really nice job.  There were 5 barbers on duty and they were all women which I find strange.  Half an hour and $8.55 later we were on our way and Michael was looking much nicer.

We’d made plans to visit Zack at the Army Reserve Center in Ogden where he works so that he could show us around.  This building, like the one he worked at in Vancouver, are very nice facilities with plenty of space for several units to occupy.

Zack is the S3 (Army lingo) so he plans, directs and administers all of the medical operations for his battalion and ensures that Soldiers are properly trained and have the proper orders to do that training.  He basically does the same thing that Michael did for the last 13 years of his military career except on the medical side and Michael worked with Combat Engineers.

Before we got to the Reserve Center we stopped at Jimmy John’s and picked up lunch for Zack and Kelsea.  So when Zack was done showing us around we drove a mile down the road to Chromalox, where Kelsea works as a mechanical designer.  She signed us all in, got us visitor badges, showed us her desk quickly and then we all went to the cafeteria where we enjoyed our lunch.

I had dinner ready for the Utah Barnett’s shortly after they got home from work & school.  We had chicken kebabs, rice, corn on the cob and cucumber salad.  This is one of my favorite meals….great for the summer but I like to have it year round.

We cleaned up quickly after dinner as we had plans to Munzee.  We’d decided to go for the 5×5 Badge where you have to cap 5 diamonds, 5 motels, 5 virtuals, 5 regular mysteries and 5 regular (greenies) Munzees.

Our arena was the nearby Target parking lot.  The virtuals were placed last night by fellow Munzers in trade for virtuals near them.  So all we had to do was deploy the others so that each of us could cap 5 of each type.  The motels were a bit tricky but Zack had a plan.

It took us nearly 3 hours to complete our mission but I believe we did it!  We’ll know for sure tomorrow morning whether we fulfilled the requirements  or not as the badges will be awarded to our accounts.  Keep your fingers crossed.

We treated ourselves to some frozen yogurt at Menchi’s  when we completed our mission.  It’s one of those places where you serve

Zack and Kelsea had a few items to get at Target before we called it a night.  Michael, Paityn and I sat outside on a bench and enjoyed the beautiful breeze while the rest of the crew shopped.  Made for a nice finish to the evening.
