I'm off to Bordon for the next couple weeks on a course. I've been down there a few times but only ever for a couple of days at a time and always with other lads from my unit. I have noticed that basically there is absolutely nothing to do down there, even my usual past time of drinking heavily is pretty difficult as the Corporal's bar is nearly always empty and the NAAFI is a no go area unless you are a part 1 trainee and have a penchant for sportswear and Reebok classics. So what shall I do? Obviously I will attempt to make friends with the other people on my course, but if on the off chance they all turn out to be bell ends, what shall I do? Any decent boozers nearby? Where can I trap a temporary wife for the duration of the course? etc. etc. Any other tips for surviving Bordon? I suppose I could just buy some porn and throw myself furiously round my room for two weeks. Failing that I'll have the car with me, so I might go on a mission to Pompey and smash some wrens for old time's sake. Edited to add: Clearly knuckling down and studying the course subject at hand is completely out of the question.
