We went on a survey mission! Outside all day everyday. We hardly got a break before we had to go out to the field for an overnight "camping trip" The survey missions were pretty fun though. I'm just really tired of not doing very much survey at all, and learning WAY too much bout how to set up a janky-ass tent. When it came to ALIT II training, it was rough! It was better than last time, for sure, but still freezing. Sleeping in snow is lame. The ladies and I chopped up trees to make a shelter. Since the Lieutenant didn't prepare us AT ALL for the field, we didn't have 550 cord to tie the branches together to make shelter. Luckily Sheffy brought bungee cords :) We made it work. Then we drank some infamous Army coffee and smoked cigarettes for the rest of the night.
After that garbage was over we went to see the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Anchorage Museum. It was pretty sweet, I love watching Edie Sedgewick in his films.
But most importantly I read my cards today! The Seven of Pentacles, Six of Wands, Five of Cups and Ten of Swords are all indicating that the hard work and bull shit of the week is over, and according to the High Priestess, The Hermit and the Hanged Man, I needed some well deserved rest and reflection after going out on survey missions and arctic training all week. Ultimately the Queen of Cups needed some boyfriend snuggle time! My King of Cups is very snuggly indeed.
