    So my unit called me at lunch YESTERDAY and told me that my orders are cut to leave for Ft Riley on Sunday. I'll be there for a month and a half. Staying at the Holiday Inn Express since I guess there's no on post lodging available. So whats around Ft Riley? Good places to eat? Any bars worth going to? Any info at all would be great.

    Never been other than driving by. Have a few friends there (none that you'd be interested in meeting) but it's one of the posts I want next. Cold as fuck bring all your cold weather gear...right now they are in the middle of a huge fucking storm knocked out power nearly state wide. Have fun. :o

    We are flying into Kansas City. I heard Kansas State University was close. We'll have weekends off, so that may be a good place to go.

    My old boss was stationed there for awhile in his Army days. Don't remember any particular places he talked about there. He seemed to like it out there.

    Fort Riley is decent (Not Ft. Carson, but not Ft. Polk either), but don't be fooled...it is NOT in the good part of Kansas. If you just want college chicks, he spot on about Manhatten and KSU. If you want HOT college chicks, drive 1.5 hrs east to Lawrence. KU has some of the hottest chicks in the midwest, and tons of bars to drink at. Also Kansas City is about a 35 min drive away from Lawrence, with even more bars and all the usual city night life. Take a trip down to "The Boats" if you are interested in gambling.

    Well, I've been here 5 weeks now. Hasn't been too bad. Been to Aggieville in Manhattan and 3 trips to Harrah's casino in Topeka. I'm hitching a ride with a two other guys back to PA for the 4 day weekend.
