Wednesday January 28th. Formation at 0545. Got to sleep in an extra 15 minutes...whoo-hoo! Lately, sleep is quite a commodity. Boarded the busses to go to chow, and we were in class by 0730. Put together our gas masks and then they needed to be tested for a good seal. If you're clustraphobic, I can imagine you might have trouble wearing one of these. You feel like you've been sealed up in a mayonaise jar. Done by 1000.

Went over to the PX (Post Exchange) for some last minute items to take with. The time is growing shorter to departure. Knowing what I know now, I am certainly less hesitant about this journey and job. Still don't have much in terms of a job description, but this type of contract job tends to be that way. You just have to be flexible. Was kind of the same way when I went to Palmer Station, Antarctica.

Had our last formation of the day at 1300 and we were released. So I finally have had the chance to catch up on my homepage log. We're going over to the surplus store before dinner to try and find some desert boots. Supply doesn't give them to civilians and clothing sales doesn't carry them. The ITT Liason had mentioned that the surplus has them and most of them have at least another year or two of wear left on them. So, that will be tonights adventure.
