What do you shower with,is it shampoo.

No, bar soap and we use it over the entire body. It doesn't make sense to use shampoo when you haven't any hair.
Plus it's a lot faster.

actually on your first trip too the recruit px you can buy antibacterial liquid soap,I suggest buying this because A) the threat of bacterial infections like Mersa and cellulitis is a very real one at bootcamp,at least 2-3 guys(maybe more) in your platoon will get it,and probably get dropped for it. B) its not as messy as bar soap to store in your little ditty bag.

If you wake up and get on line fully dressed in cammies and shaven when they yell "lights lights lights" during first phase....your going to get ****ed up beyond belief.don't even THINK about "taking the intiative" until 2nd or 3rd phase.

Eventually you will pickup the hints your SDI drops in the later phases and you'll know no one will care if you do it. Technically he can't say get up early and shave and whatever before lights, he has to give you that 8hours of sleep, thanks MoA. But he'll drop hints in later phases, makes things smoother in the mornings, gets you to chow faster, etc.
Like stated, just do what you're told first phase. You'll think your in heaven after the Crucible. You'll still be rushing and realize halfway through the act that its not really needed anymore.
Another tip, if you are a lucky one like myself that can "dry" shave (without shaving creme), do it. Its much faster, much easier, and less mess.

Cleanliness is next to godliness. Keep yourself clean especially in the field. The threat of cellulitis has been mentioned. Take it from me, wash your knees. I got to spend a week in the hospital with my knee looking like a softball because I caught cellulitis on the crucible. You don't want to do the 10 mile hump on that.
Take your hygiene seriously.

Amen to the post above this one. Make da** sure you take care of your feet. That should be at the top of the priority list before and after the humps.
And as far as making sure you're squared away before lights... also be sure to use the head before lights in the morning. Don't be that 1 recruit that is doing the "gotta ****" dance standing on line before morning chow... Lol!
