Just because someone isn't on Facebook, doesn't mean they're not real!

The Basic Up folks are real.

You could ask someone you know who is in the forces to look them up on dwan to see if a name comes up but I'm not sure I could even tell you if I did see them on the system.

I've found them on DWAN, but that's as far as I think is appropriate to go.

We are staddling the lines of a PERSEC violation here guys... if you want to get in contact with someone off the show, do it through a Public Affairs Officer, otherwise bugger off.

I know of the guy in season one who VR'd on like day 3. He worked at a call center for Rogers Wireless. Told my GF he used to be in the military. Didn't realize it was him until years later after watching basic up lol.

Not sure where he is now, but I saw Pvt White from S1 at the St-Jean Garrison in the medical buildings back in either late 2014 or early 2015. Of course, he wasn't still a Pvt xD Very similar feeling to being starstruck xD

Does anyone here think it would be a good idea to watch series like Basic Up or Truth Duty Valour before you actually head off the BMQ? I have a feeling that it would cause some shock if someone were to watch the shows and be like, "Well this doesn't look too hard!" versus their thoughts when they're actually there.

Anyone know if either of the Basic Up series exist elsewhere on the net? It seems the ones uploaded to YouTube have been set to private or deleted for the most part.

Someone on the Canadian Forces Applicants Facebook group subtitled the first episode if you or anyone else is interested.

Sorry to post on an older thread, but does anyone have an idea where to find this series? I can't seem to find it online.  My nephew has expressed interest in joining the CF and I thought this would be interesting to show him. 

Thanks.

Just type Basic Up into YouTube. There are multiple users sharing it.

Note: A few things are outdated, as well, representation of certain aspects aren't exactly accurate. But otherwise, it's interesting to check out...

I watched it a couple of years ago.  Interesting, even though it just scratches the surface.

As far as YouTube, I had it bookmarked but now all the ones I had are deleted or private, and I'm having trouble finding new links there or elsewhere.

Only one person is sharing basic up on youtube and has made all the videos private, other than that its not on there.

Sorry guys, I typed it in quickly before I posted and saw things pop up, so assumed it was the same as when I watched it on YouTube a while back also. There's snippets and I did find an episode or two, but yea, full seasons aren't accessible.

I found this though, and it looks like there are some other decent things among the suggestions. This is dated also, but decent introduction.
