Day One

Well, we are through the first day of school and it was just as I suspected in yesterdays post. It was indeed "Death by Powerpoint." Last night was interesting to say the least. We have 13 guys in one room with rotten feet and to make matters worse, the chow hall food has created what could be kindly called gastric distress which in turn has led to olfactory distress for anyone unfortunate enough to be downwind! Things will only get worse once MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat, three lies in one!) are factored into the equation later this week along with long days in the field. Gotta love it! So far things haven't been to bad once you get past the living conditions. It is a fairly short school and it looks like the course has been tailored to include the tangible things needed to survive and operate downrange, I don't think it will be the complete waste of time I had once feared. More to follow in upcoming days...
