Probally...but the Banana Islands may be the only thing showing on the globe.

LMAO! This is giving me ideas... maybe I should start a business in pubic artistry, there is money to be made! What girl wouldn't want to decorate their most treasured area?

Take 2 good sportsbras. One will be in the wash, you wear the other. Take a weeks worth of panties, good cotton ones. I found it very easy to take a shampoo/conditioner in one bottle...this I used to shampoo and for bodywash. You don't have much time...for everything...probably won't have too much time for shaving...but you do have an hour's freetime...do with it as you will. Everything will be taken from you that isn't essential. You will be able to purchase feminine products if you need them. Some girls had their period all the time...I never got it once. So don't worry if your system goes wierd. It's normal. You can take an address book. You can buy stationary at bootcamp. Because it's different being a woman in the Corps...don't worry about the little boys comments!

Don't do it
The best advice that I could give would be to just bring the clothes on your back and maybe your bible (if you are religious) with your address book in side it. Everything, I mean everything will be taken away from you at receiving, including anything hygiene items you bring. You have nothing of your own at bootcamp, it all belongs to your drill instructors and they "allow" you to use it. This includes hygiene items. They are going to have you buy everything from the px at 4th Bn anyway and put it in your whisky locker for storage. It is just easier to bring nothing and make your life easier in receiving.
As to shaving, you are going to be so tired you aren't even going to want to shave. Plus you are not allowed to have razors because so many recruits have tried to cut themselves with them that they are a controlled item. You are allowed to keep the handle to your razor but your Senior Drill Instructor will keep all the razor heads and it is a "gift" from her when the platoon is doing well if she gives them to you or not. And your scribe will issue them to you and will then have to count every single one to make sure you give them all back after your showers. If one is missing, guess what, you will never see a razor again for the rest of your time in bootcamp.
I do say bring as much white undies (grannie panties) and sports bras as you can bring. They are available to purchase at the Bn px, but I always found it easier to just have my friends send them to me in the mail. If you have good friends or parents they can always send you some nice smelling body wash, that is always a treat to get at mail call. You will be allowed to keep that from your mail call.
Just stay tough and you will make it.
Go Papa Company!
