Thank you all for the imput. I don't have a car so I can't really go anywhere. I heard about SAC company before, I guess I will just check in there right after boot. I'm alright with being work given. I heard you get most weekends off at ITB and the fleet so it doesn't really bother me not getting the 10 days of leave.
Thank you all again.

Just saying you'd be better of getting a cab, finding a hotel, spend 300 bucks and have fun. Go to Palm Springs and stay there and party, then report to ITB

Exactly, the longer he stays the cheaper it is. OP do a search for extended stay motels in the area. I'm sure there are quite a few of them.. They only do maid service once a week so they can keep their costs down. Most come with a full size fridge, two burner stove, large microwave, free cable/internet. At Candlewood Suites they also let you borrow free DVD's to watch in your room. How do I know all this? When my wife and I were waiting for our house to be built, we lived in one for close to 8 months. We got a hell of a deal, $39/night

Do only reserve bases have "hotels" on base. I know the NASJRB here has one and its cheap.

Thank you Commander and LCpl I will look into entended stay hotels/motels right before I ship.
LCpl, you got at least 2500 from boot? Thats pretty good. All my friends who just became Marines with E-2 pay said they only got around 2700 from boot. They must be raising prices of items you purchase during boot recently then lol. Oh well.

I can't imagine some family of a new Marine from your platoon wouldn't be willing to help you out either.
Worst comes to worse, look for a hot, older woman, maybe an aunt and hope she is a cougar and I'm sure she'll take care of you as long as you take "care" of her.
