We're PCSing to a state without a base - Michigan. We plan on buying a house but aren't able to go there beforehand to check it out so we'll have at least a month of trying to figure out where to stay. What can we do/where can we live while waiting for our house to close? Staying in a hotel would cost a TON for that long and there is temporary military housing or any of that in the area. Any ideas?
Also, what is the cheapest way to do a full DITY? And how do we figure out what the USAF will give us to do the DITY? We're going to need storage until we get into a house, which puts Uhaul well into the $2K range. We have 2 cars, one we could ship or tow, but we plan on taking a week of leave en route then 3 days of driving.
