When we finally got to the AFB, the Razorback Lodge was easy to find. The Razorback Inn is there to support the Little Rock AFB training mission. The staff's main goal is to provide a safe, comfortable and clean living environment for C-130 students, active-duty military members and their families who are being assigned to Little Rock AFB, and retired military personnel who may be traveling through Arkansas.

There was an ironing board in the closet. They had free wi-fi in the room, but it was very slow at uploading photos.

Bob went to the commissary, and then we went to dinner. We were driving around in the dark. I was aiming for a steakhouse, but we ended up at Chili's
