AnesteeziaI'm enlisting in the Marines for 4 years, going to save up as much money as I can while I don't have many expenses (not joining just for money), then I am going to be the master ski bum.
I'm planning on just road tripping it out west for several months at as many resorts as possible, maybe chase powder.
Don't be that guy who lives like a king the day after the 1st and the 15th, then is broke as fuck the rest of the month. I knew wayyyyyy too many of those.
I saved about 500 a month living in the bricks and eating at the chow hall on Cpl pay. It's very possible to save money, espaecially with combat deployments. You may not get that opportunity though.
If you end up at Lejeune, it's really not all that bad if you have a car and like the outdoors. Croatan National Forest is pretty close and I loved just going out there for the day.
