    Who's shipping June 22? Any females?

    Haven't seen any threads of poolees shipping June 22.
    I'm a female going to Parris Island. Who's coming too?

    I'm so excited it's getting closer...

    Be prepared for the hot heat and high humidity! It's been in the mid to high 90's now and also black flag time. I only this because my nephew is currently at PI and has been there for 2 weeks.
    And best of luck to you!

    Thanks I appreciated, just have to stay hydrated. One Marine told me today to keep drinking water even if you're sick of the taste of it, just keep going lol.

    Nobody else is shipping out this Monday? :O!

    Be careful.
    You can over hydrate your body.

    When water goes out (****ing, sweating) you put water back in.
    You need to drink enough water to be ****ing clear 2 times a day at the minimum.

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN CHARLESTON HAS ISSUED A HEAT ADVISORY...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM TO 9 PM EDT THURSDAY.

    THURSDAY...HIGH TEMPERATURES APPROACHING 100 DEGREES WILL COMBINE WITH HUMID CONDITIONS TO CREATE A FEW HOURS OF HEAT INDICES 105 TO 109 DEGREES...ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.

    So......those of you going to PI in the next few weeks, be prepared for hot and humid weather....and stay hydrated before you go, just don't over hydrate yourselves.
    Best of luck to all of you poolees that are going to PI in the next few weeks!

    Same here lol. I don't mind the heat, I live in Lake Havasu where it gets up to 125 degrees sometimes in the summer. It's the humidity I'd be scared of!

    I live in Pennsylvania, it gets really humid here in the Summer. Yesterday was so bad that the mountains just a few miles away were surrounded in a white haze. I was at the shooting range and when I would look through my scope it was all foggy through the lenses. It was actually kind of hard to see my target at the 300 yard mark.

    You should be excited about training in the places you don't feel comfortable in. Boot Camp isn't a comfort zone for you, It's a training place to make you one of us. Peace out and hope for tough training.

    Yes the humidity down here in Florida can get pretty bad but I'm pretty sure it doesn't compare. Maybe I'll see you guys at MEPS I'll be te extremely short girl lol.
