a pity i cant bring a camera into camp, sometimes there are some really cool photo-moments out in the field, especially during absurdly early and late times.
it is also fantastically intriguing to be able to stand out in the middle of a downpour. i certainly haven’t done that in an extremely long time, not in such heavy rain and being so thoroughly soaked. not even in NS time did we do such crazy stuff.
sometimes i’m surprised that despite all the griping and moaning and whining and keng-ing and grumbling and apathy, reservists are actually pretty familiar with their stuff, only nobody wants to do it. and really 9000$, or even 10500$ is not enough. the nicer food helps though. as do having familiar faces around.
