Ft Riley?
 
Has anyone ever been stationed at or known anyone from Ft Riley? I kind of have the choice to go anywhere I want. I've heard good things about 1st Infantry as a unit, and I'd be only a couple hours from Arrowhead which would be nice. It's kind of out in the middle of nowhere though and the old lady isn't too happy with the idea. Can anyone tell me what it's like?

flat and boring, being close to arrowhead is about the only advantage. and strip clubs, if you like wasting your money.

What are your other choices? Ft riley should be about #1000 on your list.

Definitely not flat.

Well...anywhere really, but the only places I'd really want to go is Alaska, Hawaii, Washington State, Riley, or back to Ft Hood, TX. The old lady really hates the cold, I really don't want to be cooped up on an island. Being close to Arrowhead is really tempting to me. I've never lived in Kansas...how's the weather there? Does it snow a lot? I'm looking for somewhere I can ride motorcycles in the summer and ride snowmobiles in the winter.

"Cooped up" on an island?

Fort Riley????? Major shithole. Lots of drugs there though to make living there bearable.

It's not flat compared to Western Kansas.

Compared to the rest of the country, it is very flat.

Summers are hot and shitty. Winters are cold and shitty. Fall is nice. Spring is usually alright; really windy and shitty.

It looked flat enough for me when I was there in the 90's. And I went there from Ft. Leonard wood

Pablo 01-20-2013 03:37 PM

We don't always get a ton of snow; but we always get ice. Ice is shitty.

Hawaii or Ft. Riley? Really?
