    I'm gonna be a NUB!! Just got my orders to report to the ssn 753 uss albany...So it looks like I'll be heading down there as soon as I get out of A school at the end of the month. Lookin forward to the change after spending about a year in Groton...any input on what to expect when i get down there?? All I've heard so far is that its a huge base and traffic sucks...

    It is a huge base, and traffic does suck.

    Va Beach is pretty nice though.

    I'm a west coast guy, but I enjoyed my 2 years out there....

    the local population hates you. you will not get out of a ticket there, so don't speed. 5 minutes in the morning makes all the difference. you leave the house too late in the morning, you'll be stuck in traffic for an hour.

    here's the rundown on the malls

    Lynnhaven=jailbait mall
    MacArthur Center=rich people mall
    Military Circle=ghetto mall (baby clothes and shoes nukka)
    Pembroke=Philipino mall
    Greenbriar=too fuckin far from base to drive mall

    If you're into punk rock/alternative, the Norva Theater is a great venue in downtown norfolk.

    local rock stations are 96.1 and 99.7 iirc.

    don't go to portsmouth alone, you will get shot (hah!)

    haha...so far I'm really liking the sound of norfolk...

    jailbait = pass
    rich people = i'm in the military...so...pass
    ghetto / baby clothes = double pass
    and nothing says good times like gettin shot.

    no pro's to this place eh? goddamn.
