Confidence Course question.
I am doing some research and stumbled upon a very helpful website, http://usmilitary.about.com. I was wondering if you could awnser some questions about the Confedence Course, they are:
 What is the "Reverse Climb?
 The Slide for Life?
 The Hand Walk?
 The Arm Strecher?
There the basic questions. I know that everyones experience is different, but preperation is very important.

Have to ask someone fresh out of boot for that one or someone at a Recruit Depot. Its been a long time since i've done them and can't remember but The Slide for Life and its really hard to explain it. They aren't anything to worry about though if thats what your concern is.

I think the hand walker is the set of dip bars that have an incline etc and you have to walk yourself up using your hands. Just a guess though.

I hate the confidence course. In SD you climb a cargo net separate from the slide for life. (there is a ladder leading to the slide for life that is like the stairway to heaven rather than the cargo net that the people at PI have.) I decided it would be a good idea to fall off the top of the net. I was only unconscious for a couple of minutes from what I've been told- but I don't remember anything between starting to fall and "coming to" on the back board about to be put in the ambulance.
On the plus side, Naval Hospital Balboa is a nice place.

Don't let your monkey or banana get brush burn on the Slide For Life!

The A frame is the crazies obstacle on the CC. I was actually a little worried about dying on PI during that thing!
