    I remember before my first PKT I asked a third classman what a PKT was...His answer was something along the lines of, "I don't want to ruin it for you."

    That is about as perfect of an answer you are likely to find.

    I remember my first experience with a blizzard in the winter of 77-78. First time I had ever been in pain from the cold. . . . brrrrrrrr.

    I was just the opposite. . . I was constantly getting bagged my first few weeks after Indoc, and seemed that I couldn't get OFF restriction. . then all of a sudden I got my head wrapped around what I needed to do. Only got 4 demerits the rest of my mere 4 years there. . . and I was constantly Over the Wall during 1st Class year. . . .
