    Schriever AFB

    Advertisements
    Has anyone been to Schriever AFB before? It's on the list of bases that have a job that DH wants to cross train into so I'm trying to look into the bases that are available.

    Is the area around it fairly rural or suburban?

    I can't get a good idea of how far it is from Colorado Springs.

    DH and I drove through and stopped at Peterson, we looked for Schriever. He decided it was because it was secret squirrel

    I think it's pretty close to Colorado Springs/Peterson though

    I worked on Peterson for a while for a construction company that had done work on Schriever previous to my being hired. We drove out there once or twice and I can't say I was overly impressed. My feeling was that it out in the middle of freaking nowhere. My co-workers also told me it was ridiculously dusty when it got windy.

    Oh, and it's about 20 minutes from Peterson. Peterson is on the eastern edge of COS.

    Schriever is in the middle of nowhere, a little bit of a commute, but DH liked working there, his job was pretty easy. The worst part was just getting inside to work: many layers of security! And back when we were there, wasn't much on base as far as services. No housing, no commis, no BX, no food court. Just a mini gas station. People were nice there.
    We really liked living in Colo. Springs. Miss it SO much!
