Here are the tents we lived in while staying in Kuwait. They are air conditioned, but during mid day it is still 100 degrees inside of tent with air conditioning. I believe the first day I was here it was 127 degrees.
Here we are getting ready for our training out in the desert. I am getting ready to eat an MRE. Yum! Atleast they have heaters. My favorite MRE was the tuna, because it was real tuna for a sandwich or something. The worst one was beef stew. Don't know what was in it, but it wasn't beef.
Here is what we stayed in while camping in the middle of the desert. It was about 135 degrees, but with no humidity it wasn't as bad as I thought. I drank about 4 liters of water a day to stay hydated.
This was inside the building. We all slept inside together and then would wake up around 3 am. So many people, not much sleep.
Here is our convoy training. My humvee is behind us. It is armored and ready to go. It was actually pretty fun to go driving around in the middle of the desert. We passed a herd of camels, but couldn't get out to take pictures due to training.
