When traveling by myself, I just tell the gps to look for hotels enroute and pick one I like a hour or so ahead of me, call and see if they have rooms. Seldom stay at mil housing, too hard to find one on the way

My wife is active duty and relocates every 4-6 weeks, and since I can, I relocate with her so we can be together and she can see our baby boy when she gets time off (not too much of that).

So I drive a compact car that's packed with the upmost care to maximize how much I can put in it. I have one backpack that has my clothes and toiletries while on the road, but like to leave everything else in place as it takes about an hour to pack (and about 30 minutes to unpack). I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving the car with stuff in the passenger compartment anywhere off base (not that I care that much about the stuff, I just don't want to deal with busted windows and don't want to have to spend time buying new stuff (it's mostly toys for my infant who gets to fly with mommy while I drive to our next home base).

If you have the time it's worth the trip. You never really know what might be out there on the racks. Leon will probably guide you to the right rifle if you explain your plight to him. If nothing else, you will know what all of us who have been there are talking about. It's well worth the trip since it is "kinda" on your way. But, if she is stationed at Pensacola then I would wait until you hear some good reports and take your son out of school on an emergency and go up with him. Dr. Leon will sign anything. Pensacola base has the greatest military air museum I have been too.

And they've begin raising lodging prices making it comparable to local hotels.
Sometimes it's not worth the gas to go out of one's way.

You're not joking, the place I stayed in on Ft. Sam was run by Holiday Inn, charged like a suite and looked like a HoJo. I was very let down, but it was more about the safe parking than it was the room, so the cost was still worth it (in the future I'm couch surfing).

One more positive endorsement for the aviation museum at Pensacola. They even remembered us Coasties!

Unfortunately my wife doesn't believe in the silent treatment.

Wait until she finds out what I really have stashed away...
