Hi All. I am reporting for my first drill weekend soon and wanted to know what I should expect and what I should make sure I bring with me (I will be staying on base). I know to pack ODUs and Trops, but wasn't sure if there was anything else I should consider bringing.
A couple other questions I have:
I am reporting that Friday (4-5 hour drive), should I wear my uniform for the drive and checking into the base (likely after 2100, if that matters) or will my civilian work clothes (jeans/collard shirt) be okay? I know there is some regulations around wearing uniforms while commuting, but didn't know if distance factored in at all.
Also, what should I expect to be doing the first weekend? Paperwork?
Should I expect full 12hr+ days or will my evenings usually be free to explore the city I report to?
Any other advice or suggestions?
