Kevin I first shared my room with two 6yrs one a BT and the other an MM.  After they left I had the room for a week by myself till a new group of boots came in.  Acourse the charge to the new boots to share the room was a pizza apiece from them.  Both of the boots were nice kids and being senior in the room I did get them started on the right path with PE Basics.

I had just finished boot in hot orlando and then went right to that killer cutting wind. That was a shock! P coat and watch cap didn't help much. It looked like it could be a nice place in the summer. One plus was I had my room to myself my roomies were married and brown bagged it

Remember snow watches in Jan to Mar. 87. I was Rcpo and prayed that my guys didn't have to go out.  Think it only happened once that they did.Hated that wind coming off the lake.  Could cut right through you no matter what you had on.
