From what I gather, internet access will be semi-frequent over in the sandbox. Since mail usually takes several weeks to reach the states, this will be an easy way for friends & family to keep abreast of what's going on during my deployment. Ideally, I can save myself the writer's cramp of writing out a bunch of letters, while sparing my poor brother the hassle of typing up & emailing out said letters.
Since I'm currently still in the states and living out of a hotel, I don't see much point of updating it until I'm at -least- in california to start my training. Look forward to more frequent updates once I'm overseas. If possible, that is.
