Day 30 In The Hole




I am sharing the journal I kept while I did 7 months in the hole…


Dec. 25, 2008 @ 4am

I spent a hour cleaning my floor with a bar of soap and a wash rag. Then I moved my mattress to the center of the floor. It’s gotta be at least 20 degrees warmer down here. Because up on the rack, I’m against the exterior wall where it’s -40 degrees outside.

Today I was supposed to leave the hole. But two days ago they told me I’m not getting out and I’m now on Ad Seg status. Which means I sit in here until they say I’m ready for mainline. That could be awhile. Some guys sit on Ad Seg for 9 months to a year, or more.

So at this point, I just don’t know. I’m fixing to find out… day at a time.

Now back to my book.
