at least you have 5 days, and a phone/internet

When I was a kid could hear the gunfire from bigger guns at nighttime. I thought the place was closed up? It looks abandoned from 101.

Meh - I used to spend a big part of my 2 weeks annually there, with the rest of the time spent at FHL. Looks like they've done zero improvements there too. My best memory was getting into a huge comany wide brawl with another unit outside the chow hall next to the helipad back in 96.

Ah come on, those old barracks have been closed down since I was there in the late 80's with the 40th Div. The beauty of Roberts can be found along the river and trails in the back area, down by the low water bridge. Take a vehicle, an MRE and go do a map recon on the West side... sure wish I could take my Jeep back there now to relive those old days! (I tried a few months ago while on a road trip, but the MP at the gate nixed that idea!).

Yeah, McClellan (MP reclass) in AL was a dump, 90s temps and same for humidity.

I'll take McCoy (13F reclass), WI and Williams (BNCOC/ ALC) in UT over most others I've been to, although Sill wasn't all that bad, other than JFO being an extremely stressful course, some of my soldiers are there now, half of my guys and half the class failed out and was sent home halfway thru the two week course. Which was about the same when I went thru.

Dix was lame, did mobilization and PLDC/WLC there. We shall see how Robinson in Arkansas treats me when I go for SDM.

Robinson was pretty nice when I went through there in 2004 for a 2 week course. Think on post "hotel like" accommodations. Great fitness center, mile long all weather track and Littlerock's downtown river walk is fun too.

I agree. I hate Camp Roberts. The brown water is disgusting. Guard dogs are awesome though. Barracks were nasty. Camp SLO had better barracks but a worse PX. The PX at Roberts was way better. The beds can give you nasty rashes too.

we usually go to roberts for training, been going to hunter ligget these last couple months - so much nicer all around, better barracks, chow hall, ranges, and training areas. Camp Roberts just sucks.
