    I've vacation pioneered, temporary pioneered, auxiliary pioneered, regular pioneered, special pioneered, and served time in Brooklyn. What a big fat waste of time it all was.

    I PI'd for a year to go to the PI school.

    The promised "joy" was absent from everyone else who PI'd.

    It was pure misery and I became imbittered.

    If that's joy, I'd rather be sad.

    No but I auxilaried 4 times (I think). Pure hell, I hated it more each time.

    I aux every summer while in school. Then Full Time for 1 year after high school (1000 hours - not this 800 sissy stuff) Then I got my Pioneer friend pregnant and then we lived happy ever after.

    in Minnestoa (anyone else?)

    I did 7 years full time service, pioneered back in the 1000 hours a year days. Our Secretary made you write a reason on the report card for any month you got less then 90 hours (which actually is 1080 hours per month) I enjoyed some of it, but when I compare myself with my new peers I am about 10 years behind them all emotionally and finanically.
