I have my place at the RMAS booked for Jan and my PCCBC in November. I just went to buy some standard issue(gore-tex) army boots and combats at the surplus store and thought it would be a good idea to start running with them now, not so much to soften the boots but more to harden my feet..... Is it too soon? And if I keep my boots in good shape ( clean, polished...) will I be allowed to bring them with me to the RMAS? I know its early to start doing stuff like this but I'm so bored at work, can't wait to hand in my resignation.... On a more academic note, any good books you gents might recommend? (top shelf material excluded) I have started reading the seven pillars of wisdom by T.E. Lawrence and am really enjoying it, I tried "On war" but gave up..... Kindest regards, X.
