    Half-way night: steak and lobster!

    Mid-rats: undercooked hotdogs and rat-dropping infested peanut butter. Mmmmm good!

    On one patrol white worms were discovered hiding in the creamy centers of our Orio-cookie stash. Lovely. Guess how we found that out!

    But, to be fair, chow was much better than on the Tender.

      We had to carry it our on our backs. Dehydrated LURPs or cans depending on what we were given. None of it was really food - there was a strange form of "dairy thing" called Cheese Processed, which the boys immediately renamed, Cheese Possessed. I didn't **** right for years after eating that stuff. Probably explaines my current attitude!
