I've seen several threads on here about packing for BCT and the general consensus is to pack lightly. My Cadre told us when going to the hotel the night before shipping out to wear cloths we won't mind throwing away, a travel toothbrush, toothpaste, disposable razor, needed paperwork, wallet, cellphone and 1 change of cloths.
He said in the morning at the hotel to clean up, change into the cloths we bought and throw all of it away so that we go to basic with only the cloths on our back, our paperwork, wallet and cellphone. For those that have been there recently how sound is this advice? We won't need change of underwear, a razor on hand, nothing like that? I'm assuming with that advice we would be going to the PX the same day we get there.
