Air Force Academy Campground Review

Military Famcamp Park Review: US Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado

As many of you know, we recently moved from Colorado to Idaho in our 1998 Holiday Rambler Class A Diesel Pusher RV. We rented a place for our home base in Idaho Falls, Idaho where our son currently lives as he is still under age. But, we also took a nursing contract position in Mountain Home Idaho for 13 weeks. Unfortunately for us, that means paying rent on two separate locations until our son goes off to college. We chose to keep a location in Idaho because Idaho is a “Compact” state for Nursing Licensure. There were other places we could have chosen to limit our tax situation but we decided we would rather have a stable home base for the next few years while we figure out what we are going to do with our lives.

Thankfully, every journey begins with a single step! In our case, that step was taking our RV out on a maiden voyage for a few days while we vacate our Denver rental home and attend our son’s High School Graduation. My plan was NOT to do blog entries showing normal “camping” type activities but after our first stay we decided to document our travels (trials and tribulations?) for all to see and maybe learn from. It is now July and our journey started in mid May 2017.

Below is our first campground review (yes – I have a few more to do to get caught up).

First Official Tourist Destination

May 14 2017

While staying at the US Air Force RV Family Camp, Marci and I took the opportunity to visit the academy visitor center on base.

The history of the academy is deep and full of tradition.

From Wikipedia:

The United States Air Force Academy (also known as USAFA, the Air Force Academy, or the Academy), is a military academy for officer cadets of the United States Air Force. Its campus is located in the western United States in Colorado, immediately north of Colorado Springs in El Paso County.

Day 2 – May 13 2017

Day 2 – Money Disappearance Act

Lots of gas being burned as my son needed to be in Denver for a graduation party. Took the opportunity to buy some stuff from goodwill (cushions to sit on at the concrete picnic table) and do some grocery shopping. Also bought a new PEX crimp tool. No more water leaks.

Since this is a new to us rig we had to figure out the water system and react to a pyramiding issue since the facilities had been used by a couple of members of our party (DW & Son specifically) without adequate water.

All of that is on its way to being solved. Had to figure out to bypass the water pump when using city water connection. Dumped tanks for first time. I now know I need to get a stinky slinky LOL

Spent 400.00 on stuff today. Not fun! But necessary (at least that is what I told DW)

Day 1 – May 12 2017

Well, since July 2016 I have been researching, planning, selling, buying, and in every way being a pain in the neck to my wife.

We moved out of our rental house yesterday, stayed in a hotel last night, and moved into the RV tonight.

We are Colorado bound until our car is repaired from an accident last week (bummer) and the kid is graduating High School next Wednesday.

Free at last, free at last, free at last!

It has been one heck of a year. But I prefer to remember only the last 24 hours and forward!
