no doubt...

we were tasked with having to desert train all the visiting units...and we'd have to be in that hot desert for weeks at a time...

spending 3 out of every 4 weeks in the Mojave Desert in 125 degree heat was no joke man...

i don't miss it...

When you get older, your body doesn't feel the need for water, get hydrated before kickin' ass.

A 34" jean at 215? 6'0"? Where's all that weight, in your head?

:~ohyah!:

I'm a 34, but 185, 6'2".

You might be wearing those jeans "Western" style, or something.

Yea, I used to do a 32 at about the same weight back in Jr. High or so.

Not that that was that long ago or anything. :)

That's the "Key" make yourself drink water. I can play golf in this heat as long as I make myself drink a few cups of water every few holes. I know I'm in trouble when I don't need to piss !!! and by that time it's too late to recover. This getting old crap does suck !!!
