It was partly at Katz’s behest, but I thought MilSci would be fun—rappelling and that. When I enlisted the subject, I thought the most difficult thing we would have to do in the course was climb down the slapdash wood-and-metal-scaffolding structure on the slope in front of the gym.
Apparently it’s kind of like training for Hell. For two semesters. To pass the course we have to go on, and survive, a two-day-and-two-night survival camping trip to UP Los Baños at the end of next semester. We’ll have to cook our own food, find our way using a compass and a map and pretend our teammates are injured and transport them between cliffs and ravines.
