I'm enclosing a map
that I was given and the stations I was to report to. We had stations
2 and 5. The arrow shows the route I took which covers about 8 miles.
The time I left and the time I arrived at each station is also on the
map. I did it all in 2.5 hours, leaving 5 minutes to 9 and getting home
Trying to pick out the different roads was the hardest part. So in the past 64 hours we have had only 8 hours of sleep. We had to get up at 5:30 this morning and we only got to bed at 1am. In the last two days we have traveled (or walked I should say) about 40 miles.
Then Saturday we had to go to a range that is farther than the one we went to before. It is 7.5 miles each way with a full field pack. This has been the toughest week that I can think of. My feet really hurt now but I guess everyone else's do too.
The weather is still hot here although Monday and Tuesday were cloudy. Today it was real hot and the only thing that saved the day was a nice cool stiff breeze blowing. I didn't get any mail today but I'll probably get some tomorrow. I'm waiting for some more pictures. I can hardly wait to see them. The ones I got are swell. I'm collecting a nice pile of pictures and every time I feel myself getting blue all I have to do is look at all the pictures and I feel better right away. I can hardly keep my eyes open so I'd better close before my writing gets so bad that you can't read it.
With loads and loads of love and kisses for you sweetheart. I'll say goodnight darling until tomorrow.
Your ever loving husband,
