Hurricane Gustavo is worrying and exciting a lot of people. A couple of days ago, it looked like Gustavo was going to head straight for us, now the weathermen are calling for it to hit the central coast of Louisiana. However, a few years ago, Hurrican Ivan looked to have the same trajectory, but at the last minute it cut northeast and basically hit Pensacola square on. So, although we have not been told to evacuate, they have told us to be ready to. I am stoked because we are going to get some big waves. Hopefully, I'll be able to surf them, but if not, it will still be cool to watch.
Coming up next week, we have a bunch classes and briefings for other miscellaneous things. Also, we start CPTs (cockpit procedural trainer). Basically it is a simulator for the aircraft where we can practice pretty much any checklist and EP (emergency procedure). EP's are a very significant aspect of flying training.
So, in conclusion, this weekend will be spent preparing for CPT's, waiting for surf, and perhaps most importantly, watching the USC game. FIGHT ON!
