    Yeah i'm at Cheyenne mountain resort. I just hope there's somewhere near-by so i can walk to a store and get stuff like shampoo and soap... Room-mates, maybe? they said they were picking us up, giving us dinner and breakfast, and taking us in the morning.... so i'm DEFINITELY not complaining

    At orientation, i saw a ton of bikes underneath Vandenberg and Sijan, obviously owned by cadets. I ride quite a bit, and I was wondering when the best time would be to bring out my bike. Or would it even be a good idea as a 4dig?

    Sweet, that helps. What about personal experience. The cadet I was with at orientation told me definitely compression shorts, duct tape, and some other little "didn't think of" items

    Can we get a checklist started for I day... including some things we talked about at orientations that aren't necessarily in the appointee information packet, (ie social security card)

    Acceptance day/Parade

    I was wondering about the date for Acceptance day and Parade. They are the same thing, right? I know there is only an hour or so that you can see family, but my brother wants to see me then. Is it just the last day of BCT?

    Finances as a 4 degree

    Well, my point was that I won't be living in North Carolina at all, so after Colorado's requirements are met (90 days, I think?) would it be wiser to file for Colorado taxes? And would AFA be my new permanent address?

    Finances as a 4 degree

    I have a question concerning taxes. Obviously, at the academy I'll be paying fed taxes. Right now I'm in NC, but when I leave this summer my mom will be moving around. Would it be a better idea then to claim residency in Colorado and pay colorado taxes?
