This is the real curriculum. If you are a motivator and want a leg up, having this stuff memorized would put you at a HUGE advantage when you get there.
I remember getting to the rack, with this math:
8 hours from lights to lights.
-1 (30 minutes on either end to get stuff done with personal gear)
-.5 (getting ready for, getting undressed after firewatch)
-1.5 (homework/studying for tests)
-.25 (reading/writing letters)
= 3.75 hours of sleep.
This was a very typical night. Some were worse, some were better. Imagine cutting out that homework section! 3.75 hours of sleep vs. 5.25. Let that motivate you.
