SITREP- Avonte

Post by avontepayne10 »

I’m currently laying in my meps bed just got back from the pool. At the moment I’m very calm and don’t feel anxious, but I’m sure that I will later tonight. The hotel has a nice hot tub that I’m taking advantage of. I met another guy who was shipping with me today from the same recruiter and he is also wanting to be in the regiment and is very squared away. Going in there with some friends from the start has definitely calmed my nerves a bit. I would like to thank Ranger Disinfertention for all of the advice and for messaging me. And Robby for always being a huge motivation. And to all the other people on this forum and in the discord for their help.

Roger that Ranger CharlieRanger1FFV, I’ll stay focused and remain more motivated than ever, my goal is to max out the PT test by the end of OSUT, I’m only 9 pushups and 10 seconds off which is a tremendous improvement from where I was before I got here

I hope you are finding time at night to do some pullups/chinups if you are not getting any for PT! One step in the right direction so far, keep on it.

Good start. We used to do pullups/chinups in the bathroom and used a towel over it since it was sharp... worked good enough I guess. Make sure it can support weight. Ours were shady at best.
