hope you like powerpoint jesso!  A lot of what's great about basic are the people you're with and (if you're lucky) the instructors.  Get a good group and you'll have a blast with just about everything.

For my part I'm going to follow koko's lead and sink into the background as much as possible.  Don't worry about trying to finish first, but make sure not to finish in the bottom 1/3.  That's not to say I won't help people out whenever I can, I just don't want the instructors to get me in their sights.

First off, I don't think anyone in the navy wants here anything about "sinking" into the background.
Second, you should always try and finish first. Just make sure you're not the only one standing on the winners podium. I hate that " 'C' is a 'P'" attitude especially from future officers. I'm not always pleased with tasks given to me but I will always strive to do my best so that when it really counts, people can count on me er... I mean we.
How could anyone not fall in love with Canada's baby seals?... They make really good gloves.

Yes...I have never bought into the "C" is a "P" mentality before...although I know nothing of the military way (yet)...just my outlook as a civi for years... :P

I had heard about the stairs from a girlfriend who is a Capt now...she said the stairs were great five years ago as well  ::)
But hey it's basic...it is supposed to encompass many things to test you and make you uncomfortable...isn't it?

Not sure if they still do all this stuff we did, but the platoons used to get platoon sweats, with our platoon #, Course # and we had to pick a course "motto".

12 Platoon, 8930, "Challenge To Excel" was our motto...to excel as individuals, as squads (sections now?) and as a platoon.  Running stairs sounds like it could be hard.  Running around in A-stan with full kit, wpns, ammo, water, PPE, etc in 50 degree temps with a enemy actively engaging you sounds LOTS harder. 

Its all there to prep you mentally and physically, and to sort out those who don't pack the gear for military service.  Meet the challenge!

...and have a good time, learn, learn to laugh, learn to stick together.  Work hard, play hard...the rest all "should" fall into place.

The CF is a great family, welcome to it!

Oh, for any of the Armoured types, don't forget to remind everyone else that they are not wearing a black beret, so they are actually second-rate next to you   ;D

(meant in fun, but ya, it is fun to poke at each other, if its kept respectful and in fun).

Here, Here! Everyone wants that black baret.  Wear it with honour and pride.  .   Everyone is a brother and a sister because this is a family away from your own.  You support every soldier as he/she would support you.  You tell eachother your secrets as much as you dig that trench together.  Some people you get to know better than your personal family.   If you are lazy you will be picked up right away, even if you are below the radar. If you don't shape up, VR.  Just go in and do the best you can and get over the psychology of the game and you will have alot of fun.

Good one Springroll...as you can see spell check didn't get that one...I was sleep deprived...as you can see by the time of the post...just so everyone knows...I can stay up for days...but what comes out of my mouth some of the time will most likely have you rolling on the floor laughing hysterically... ;D

Hey everyone,

I was sworn in yesterday, and start IAP on August 28th. I believe my course number is 0093.  I'm excited and anxious. Should be great.
