    I spent almost 6 years living and/or working in 22 Area, just right across the street from the air station. There's a decent E-club in 22 Area (at least, it was the last time I was there), and mainside is a very short drive away.

    On a related note -- I don't know what it is about Rattlesnake Canyon Road, but every single time I went up that fucker, I HAD to drive as fast as possible. You'll become very familiar with this road in just a couple weeks, as mainside has everything you need to keep busy. Take advantage of the free movies at the theater.

    Hey Kazzander what's up? Kazzander and I were stationed together in the 22 Area. I haven't been there in years but it's about 7 miles from the main gate (and the beach) and probably the same to mainside (in the opposite direction).

    I'd say it's probably one of the better places on Pendleton to get stationed in.

    Not too hard for a junior enlistee to save up a grand or two and drop it on a cheap honda for transportation.

    I have a friend in the wing there, and I have orders for 1st MLG in June.

    I can not wait to get off this damn island. It was an experience, but I am looking forward to coming back to the US!

    There's public transport from the base hospital to the Oceanside Transit Center. From there you can take the coaster to San Diego (train) or Metrolink/Amtrak to LA and however far you want to go from beyond there.

    Pendleton is awesome, wish I got stationed there, my parents live in Temecula which is pretty close. But of course marine corps puts me at lejeune.
