I'm a Navy Wife and I created this group back when I was a girlfriend and my now husband had gone to bootcamp. Its funny because i joined this website when they had under 50 members. This website has been sooooo helpful and I met so many people on here that gave great advice. I made this group so that we could all come together and give eachother advice and share ideas. I see that this group is growing more and more by the day, Im happy to see that because so many wives/fiances/and girlfriends are clueless when it comes the military lifestyle. Not knowing what to expect and not knowing about deployments, bootcamp, duty stations, etc. I want this to be the place you all recommend because so many people on this site are knowledgeable and very helpful. Once again thanks for joining my group and i hope you get all the information you need. I dont get to log on as much as i used to but i try my best to get on here. So if u have any questions feel free to make a discussion topic and Im positive that it will get answered if not, inbox me :-) Take Care ♥

And gee gee- welcome :) I hope you find the sight helpful and comforting. I know I have!

I am making my first trip to Norfolk, it is so over wheleming to see the base!! I have been told so many different opinions about housing. Some people say live on base, others say find off base housing. What are yalls opinion?

Hello ladies. So I found this mini series on line called carrier. Its a documentary where they went out on the Nimitz during a six month deployment. It has ten episodes and shows the day and life of our sailors while on the ship. http://www.pbs.org/weta/carrier/. it helped me a lot to know what my sailor is up to right now. Also military spouse magazine has had some awesome articles about PCS and deployment you can find it on facebook

Hope you all are doing good. Prayers to all our sailors and their families

Thanks Jenn and Anti M!

If you ever need to weigh a truck yourself, you can go to any truckstop with a CAT scale.  It costs about $10 each time.  You can find local locations online.  Never go into the weigh stations you see along the highways, those are for DOT commercial vehicles only. 

Comment by Jenn_NicksWifey on September 4, 2013 at 10:45pm

No problem, I try to help with what I can.  The first 2 moves we used ABF UPack.  I like their service, but it keeps getting more expensive.  For our next move, which is currently in the works, just waiting on housing to open up, we're using MovingPlace.com.  I haven't done business with them before, but they beat UPack's price for the same space and have very similar contract terms.  Always read the fine print and know the cancellation policy.

Jenn, you've been so helpful!! Thank you so much! What company did you use to drive the truck, if you don't mind me asking? I want our orders already so I can start planning. Lol I'm such a planner!!
Comment by Jenn_NicksWifey on September 4, 2013 at 10:14pm

When we did the Navy reimbursed move last Oct, the wording on the form said you had to weigh the empty truck at the origin and then weigh the full truck at the destination.  You don't have to stop at any other weigh stations.  We used a truck rental that drove it for us.  They dropped off the empty truck at our house, we loaded it and called them to pick it up.  They had the empty truck weighed before they dropped it off and then after they picked it up (same weigh station) and emailed me scanned copies of the tickets after they dropped off the truck.  If you drive the truck yourself, just make sure you get it weighed before and after or you're screwed.  When you do the move counseling, ask the counselor for specifics and read the form before you do the moving then you know exactly what the requirements are.  I know things change frequently in the military, so it's always best to double check with someone who works in that department.

Comment by J's Wife on September 4, 2013 at 9:57pm

How does the weighing of the truck work? I've seen weigh stations on the side of the road; do you really stop at every one of them? Is it time consuming?

Comment by Jenn_NicksWifey on September 4, 2013 at 5:03pm

Yes, you'll send in copies of your receipts for moving costs and fill out some forms and it will be deposited like regular pay.
