    :rofl: those tags are awesome

    Good luck. Remember... if the AF says it's too hot outside to run, the alternate exercise is the stationary cycle. ENJOY AND GOOD LUCK!

    That, and try your best to NOT get noticed. Also, don't volunteer for anything.

    I started Basic in August, 1994... San Antonio is HOT that time of year. :biggrin:

    Good luck, man.

    Oh God...I would pay a large amount of money to be able to follow this with a video camera.

    What's the over/under on how many nights before Red Rabbit is crying himself to sleep in his bunk? 2?

    I would start practicing getting up very quickly, keeping everything very neat, and making your bed very quickly as soon as possible.

    :stupid:

    My Dad said the key was to not stand out...the guys who suck end up doing push ups all day and so do the guys who want to be leaders (of course he went through basic in the late 60s)
