XCTC – Day Fourteen (Weds) – Teamwork; Comms; Heat; MREs; Navigation

-Pretty good teamwork happening with our team of four today, which is good. We all have something we do well, and help each other.

-I heard that our team is showing most of our soldiers as “Comm Ready”, which means that they are being seen online, which is great. Not sure if they measure between teams, but we’re doing well.

-Day-over-day it’s getting really hot. Was 109 degrees by end of day. Tomorrow may be even hotter. I need a wide-brimmed hat. Used to have one of those for hiking, but can’t find it unfortunately. Might have to get one, as I have over a week left.

-We scored a whole box of MREs from one of the soldiers because we were making a big deal of them. I’m keeping my three packs for ultimate disasters.

-One of the soldiers asked us how we were so effectively finding them. We said we’re using a military grade app. What’s good is that the soldiers are coming out for battery swaps, because they see us being out there as well – I think.
