|For the record, I work in one of these.|
In other news, there's a sweet new type of MRE out there called the "First Strike Ration", which contains nearly three times as much food in a package that's about the same size as a regular MRE. The food is also better. If you've never had an MRE before, I suggest you try one, at least a novelty if nothing else.
I've really begun to pick up the pace on writing posts for the blog. I'm nearly two weeks ahead of schedule as I write this, and plan to have even more posts lined up by the time you read this. Some great posts coming up this week include info about stocks, Facebook games, and living a simpler life.
The temperature has been fluctuating quite a big, with a difference of almost 30 degrees between the day highs and night lows. I find myself cranking up the heater in my "office" at night, and blasting the A/C during the day. The A/C in my sleeping tent blasts 24 hours though, and it's funny to go to sleep with one sheet, then wake up after a few hours to add another, and a few hours after that I just get in my sleeping bag and throw both sheets over the top of it.
