Well welcome to the NW, in June.

Full trail rundown and mapping at: NWJEEPN.COM

Gun laws: very very nice. Go to local sheriff office, fingerprint, pay a less than $100 fee, background check, and permit in hand in about 2 weeks. NICE!!!

Not familier with Whidbey housing; someone else will have to step in.

On deployment I fell down a ladder well breaking and tearing legiments in my ankle, and our follow on mission parameters changed and it was determined we need an extra body to work the mission support. And since I was about to go on med hold. I was force extend till Dec.

Welcome to the NW soon! Gun laws are very nice here as Bubblegoose mentioned, the problem is that we only have one Cabella's and its in Lacey which is SouthWest Washington. But there are many other great gun retailers. You will like Whidbey, it is a very nice Island!

Isn't there a Cabelas being built in Monroe or something? I prefer Wholesale Sports though. Especially for Glock pricing which my guess is a preference for JoeGlock.



ps. welcome BTW!
