Well the plans have changed for me. Same start date (Sept 4th) but instead of heading to St. Jean, I'm heading to Borden. I'm not sure if thats good, bad, or doesn't make a difference. Oh well, less travel time!
Yeah there was a guy in my bmq that was told that too. He VR'd right after grad because he had gone around telling everyone he was PPCLI and making quite a fuss about it. A few days before grad all the reg f guys were taken to a room and given their orders. He got RCR. I heard he's now trying to enlist in the AirForce.
That's good to hear. I tried to tell the other guy there was no shame in either, he should be proud to serve in whatever regiment he's put in to, but he had his little heart set on PPCLI. Good luck at bmq!
I am going to Saint Jean It s weird that some other guys who are going RCR infantry are going to Borden and I am going to Saint Jean and am RCR infantry. (so I was told) it doesn't matter where I go but it would be good to stick with others that could be posted to your same unit.
As for getting ready for BMQ I work out at the GYM 5 days a week each day is a different muscle. Within that work out I will through in a swim or a 45 min elliptical cardio. Lately it has been a swim. Every other night I go for a run which is about 3.5 to 4 km.
When I stared working out I was 230 I now weigh 209 which I think is a good result. Anyways who is going Saint Jean I will see you there.
Here is a link to CFB Borden's website, I didn't find much BMQ related information on it though.
And St Jean if you don't already know it.
I'm currently on my BMQ at Aldershot and I'm on my third week. BMQ is one of the greatest experiences I've ever had. I've met so many great people and my platoon instructors are funny as hell. The whole course is just one great time, you guys enjoy!
