Well-the girlie equivilant(sp?!) of my spurs. David (hubby) is a cav scout in the army. It’s an old cav tradition that they pretty much get hazed for a few days to get the spurs. There are gold and silver and it’s a big cav tradition and yada yada. Anyway…. Spouses spur ride-yay. That was today. I’m exhausted. We had to meet up at 7:45 (on 4hrs of sleep-thank you Finnie). They gave us a safety brief. Then we learned how to clear a room. Like look for bad guys while not shooting or getting each other shot. Lol. (scouts kick in doors)
then we got to fire the m-16. Which is mega mother fucking heavy. Hahaha. I knew all about that biatch though. (thank you David and all his competitive board and study nights). From there we headed towards the obstacle course. OMG! We crawled in dirt under barbed wire, climbed up a giant wooden ladder thkngy and over it, did a balancing beam thing, did a belly roll (four GIANT logs really high off the ground that you hoist yourself up onto and roll across), a thing kinda like that-go over one, under one for like8 of em. I slipped and landed on my ass–hard to do!! And I have super short legs. Rofl. Hard to climb up those bitches.
Anyway, then we did a ruck march wearing the giant huge Kevlar (helmet) and the freakin backpack that wasn’t the full 60lbs David wears but it was still like 20. Which doesn’t sound like much, once you walk 45minutes like that-omg! Haha.
My arms hurt, my butt hurts, my legs hurt. I’m sore and exhausted. Oh then we went asking good guys and bad guys questions to figure out if they’ve seen the one bad guy we were supposed to catch.
And our team of 8 had like 5eggs that we had to pass around and keep safe. (they were our battle buddies. Lol).
Then ate MRE’s and went home….
Anyway–spur ride dinner//ball is Saturday. Whooooopp. And David has to put a yellow (cavalry color) garter all up on me and be all ceremony type thing. Haha.
Anyway–pic of me laughing at myself while doing the “ruck march”.
