Final day of the week, we started at P.S. 248.

 

We got all of our tools. And books. And they weigh more than most midgets.

 

 

Thats Nothing wait till you start getting more stuff...

 

I suggest you folks invest in good bags but please try to stay away from the Suitcases!

 

Nobody warned us about how heavy our books and tools are. felt like i was carrying a small child on my back

I had flashbacks lugging mine back home today lol. It'll get heavier once we get our radios next week. Reminded me when I was with the grunts carrying around my Radio/Satcom equipment. Most of the wieght was from the books though.

TSS Ricky is a cool guy. I don't know Roberto. And the last time I saw Donald, he looked like he was on his way to Europe with that big suitcase he rolls around (laminated stripmap cheatsheets can't take up THAT much room!). I managed to get all of my required PPE into a swissgear backpack which I bought at Staples, with room to spare for my WAA-survival kit. Once you finish schoolcar and get on the road, the only books you'll be required to carry are the rulebook, blue book and either the butcher book or another pocket notebook which you can use to write notes for customers. Did they give you a route guide?

Oh yes, the 3rd rail jumpers. Those are fun. When I did it, I had to do it much longer than everyone in my class because, right when it was my turn, the train dumped. So I had to hold it until the train could re-charge.

How come you didn't say hello to me Snowblock if you saw me? And carrying a big bag comes in handy because I carry my lunch in there. So if I ever get stuck somewhere, I'm never seperated from my food.

what do you carry for lunch, a picnic? I can carry my lunch easily in my bag without that huge bag you drag behind you.

I carry a big lunch and a 2 liter bottle of soda. And yes, on most days, there is a 2 liter bottle of soda in my bag.

Enjoy school car because it will be the last time for a long time that you get to work "normal" business hours. And your lucky you got to choose which division to go to. I wish I had that option.

2 liter bottle of soda? So bad for your teeth and you'll balloon into a huge c/r. Oh well.

Plus water comes in handy in the summer when the subway is hot. Water hydrates you while soda dehydrates you.

 

Roberto gave me my 10 (or was it 12) month eval.
