Summary Title : Western, Washington Area Visit
Summary : 12 August 2004 Arrived in Washington State Today
I was stationed at what was once called the Naval Submarine Base, Bangor, Washington. The times they are a changing. I believe they call it Naval Base Kitsap, Bangor now. I was very disapointed to say that virtually everything in Kitsap County had changed. However, I am pleased to say that the Sub Base itself had changed very little, at least in the non security areas. Having been retired 10 years I had no way of accessing the lower base which is behind a very serious security barrier.

For those of you who are travelers I am including the below wireless information for your travels.
I used Verizon Wireless for my Internet connection and virtually all of Western Washington had fair digital 1X service.
I used Sprint for my Cell Phone (Voice Communications) I had pretty good service most of the areas I was in. Which includes both sides of the Hood Canal.
