    Sadly they don't any more due to defence cuts. You are expected to find somewhere to stay through your basic training or you can pitch a tent on the sports field. I advise the first option, as you will be exempt personal kit inspections.

    There is a hotel on the bases also with room service, it's ok it is a three star hotel and recommended in some hotel guides.
    I'm a little crazy, I like to run ultra distances for fun.

    Your RENTATENT business to new entries seems to be flourishing.
    Would you consider floating it on the stock market so that a few RR members could get a piece of the action.
    I would also be interesting in your RENTASLAPPER operation.
