the next 15 minutes....

I didn't get past the toasty sleeping bag part. If you been with Mart, you can't WAIT to get the hell out of that sleeping bag.

I was getting so excited. It didn't end the way my camping trips do. I guess you can't win them all.

I hate the smell of the barracks still to this day. The barracks would wreek of feet ass and clp. Mix that in with the right amount of dominos pizza and you have a nice sweaty rancid smelling hole. I hate the carton of smokes you would go through in the first 2 days of a field op, and the log of dip. I hate the way the cattle cars would leave you looking like you just went through a cage match with Mike Tyson
