    Thanks guys.
    Now its a rush to pack up my stuff and decide what I can actually take with me... being that my dorm room is so small. I was able to get a bike box, they tried charging me 10 bucks for it. I got it for free because they had surplus. Now I just have to figure out if the post office on base will ship something this big or not.

    Should I let the air out of my shock and fork for shipping, due to pressure differences on the plane or will it not matter? Also will my hydro brakes be affected in any way?


    Feels good to graduate, Just wish I had more time to relax and enjoy it.

    ... =(

    I can't ship my bike(s).
    The base post office wont ship a box that big and the UPS off base wants 500 euro (exchange rate is 1 euro= 0.81 USD) to ship it...
    =(

    I have to wait for my parents to PCS this... August at the earliest to either Florida or Texas... and then wait even longer for the household goods to arrive, and then even longer yet to have a chance to obtain my belongings from them.

    No biking for me this summer.
    =(

    Aw that stinks! Maybe you could get an "ok" bike for cheap down there if someone has a yard sale or something. And why on earth do they want 500 to ship a box? There's no way it actually costs them that much.

    WVU..? West Virginia University?

    I'm going to Virginia Tech this fall. Environmental Policy and Planning, or Environmental Resource Management, have not decided.

    I really really wish my GPA was that good. not that it matters anymore, it gets re-invented in a few months!

    You're HS GPA doesn't mean much past getting into college anyway. Mine was great, but my college GPA was aweful. I never really learned to study, so here's hoping you do better.

    Seriously, congrats! Great profession your choosing. My wife got her undergraduate in nursing then went to get her Masters in nursing and now works for an Oncology group specializing in cancer/blood disorders. Did I mention she doubles my salary as well and gets bonuses that sometimes equates peoples yearly salaries!
