T - 16days.
I have stepped up my training the past few weeks and have developed quite a good running workout if anyone is interested just ask. As well as started to do some hiking fully geared up (terrain in North Van is nice and steep)

lets see....gettin some new industrial strength insoles pretty quick, gettin some hefty big zip lock bags, maybe gettin some moleskin or something of that sort, have tons of buggoop and sunscreen....if you guys have any suggestions or lil things to pick up now is a good time to let me know. But I think I am pretty well prepared.

Any workout suggestions or supplements to take or what ever would be dope as well.

And finally I asked to the guys on my last training night...any advice for the courses.

you guys have my full attention from now till I leave.

Try get all your nifty, neato gear, like NBC bag, wallet, watch band, batteries etc. before you go. The CANEX is a bandit organization with officers above the rank of major as shareholders. The deal they cut with Canadian Peacekeeper for this gear is a blatant rip off to the common soldier to line their pockets. eg. $80.00 for a $30.00 helmet bag and almost the same for an NBC bag worth $34.00 in a kit shop. The base will try make the CANEX the only game in town, as all NPF purchases for the base have to be made from CANEX (as decreed by these same shareholders). You won't make enough to support yourself and make payments on their BMW too. Take enough toiletries, etc with you to last till your first pass, then get your stuff downtown. Good luck this summer.

This post was identical to the previous, so I neutralized it. [Fifty]

CANEX does not issue shares and therefore is not controlled by a group of senior officers.

I've always found the prices at CANEX to be good or at least reasonable in relation to civvie land at large.

In fact the gas station in Edmonton has gas up to 3 cents a litre cheaper than it's nearest competitor.

PteJoe just so happens I am pte Joe as well.

I breath a lil different than just straight in a straight out and it works for me. I breath in for three then as I take the next three steps I push the air out in kinda like waves,but not just one two three its all continuous but a lil bit harder as my foot hits. That way my breathing is my pace. DONT HYPERVENTILATE though.

For gunner (and off topic):

"For RCA...seems to me you put "met course standard" on my course reports a couple of times" - if I put this down in your case it was strictly for motivational purposes. It seemed to have worked. Come on down to WATC ADS and we'll do a QL2/3 together (we'll call it the Old Farts Troop)

My profile says Armed Forces Primary Reservist so I guess that means reserves?

RCA...Aww, shucks and all this time I didn't think you cared!

As a matter of fact the G3 Tasks asked me if I wanted to go to Shilo to fill a Safety Offr task from 17 Jun until 25 Aug 01. While it was tempting (not!) my boss had other plans for me this summer. We are providing support for the 2001 World Track and Field Games in Edmonton and I will probably be in Halifax for a little over a week in August to take part in a Domestic Operations Exercise. Needless to say I will RV at your location sometime an hit you up for a frosty one. By the way, I was in Bordon last month and met up with Lt RB who was on her finance course (small world!).

For Gunner...

I'm doing almost the same job as I've been doing for the last couple of years in the office across the hall. It'll be good to see you again.

And the same **** is still happening!!!!!!!
