    Just got out of basic. Reporting to Fort Gordon for AIT tomorrow.

    Basic wasn't all that bad. Just do what you're told, be where you're suppose to be, when you're suppose to be there and in the correct uniform and you're fine.


    Physically it was tough for the first month, then I got in shape (lost 35 lbs total). I went from running 2 miles in 25 minutes to running it in 16:28. From 20 pushups to 52 (still weak there) and from 20 situps to 65 (close to maxing out).


    I did, however, triple my gray hair count. Dealing with a bunch of idiots on a daily basis will stress you out a bit.


    Not sure when I'll be able to log back on, but just thought I'd let everyone know the old man made it (I was even PG for awhile) and I'm doing just fine.

    Georgia is on my list of places to never go unless it's a stop over in Atlanta within which I will never leave the airport terminals.

    On the note of summer weather. It's rained 49 days of the last two months here in NY. While I'm sick of the cloud cover, it hasn't exactly been pouring rain and it's been rather cool, so I can't complain. Although our pool is still chilly. That (and the rain) hasn't stopped my daughter from jumping in though!

    I loved AIT.

    Fort Sam Houston and San Antonio was great.

    Staying awake in class sucked, but everything else was great.:laugh2:
