So,yeah,I joined the army: Day 23

Fucking snow!!

Yeah,it's snowing here already, and even by Nowegian standards, this is really early. But I guess it makes sense,concidering I'm about as far north you can get in this country. It's not really a problem, because now we get to wear our cool winter uniforms (pictures coming.)  

The past week and a half have been pretty boring, we went into the mountains to find missfires left by the artillery-battalion, and 5 eight-our days of walking in a line,staring in the ground can get a bit tedious. I got the two last days of because of my leg injury, but it's still pretty boring here alone. 
Speaking of my injury, I've got good news and bad news. The bad news is that I need surgery,but the good news is that won't get kicked out because of it. The surgery is not a complicated procedure, but it's really painfull for a week or so after,so I will get some time off. 
I'm really excited about the next week, since we'll be going on our first week-long field exercise. A week with little-to-no sleep, frozen bodies and a ton of cool combat practice. I can't talk too much about the details, since that is classified, but I'll tell you about my experiences when I get back.
 
I know I promised some pictures soon, but I'm afraid that won't happen. We won't get leave until about a month from now, so I can't get my laptop or camera, but as soon as I do, I'll get some pictures out to you guys. 
 
Take care
