Re: The Future of the Aviation Challenge Bubble

Sorry, my post was not clear. The AC bubble - or at least the open air portion - was replaced back in 2017. That's what I meant by a few years. I just never heard much about the replacement and was hoping someone maybe knew more. I went back through AC's FB page to find some pictures. https://sconte...

Re: Shadow (The counselor)

I know this is out of date, but wow - what a blast from the past. If you're talking about the same Shadow that I think you're talking about, we onboarded together in 2010. His name is Mike. What a trip he was! He was an Army vet if I remember correctly.

Re: The Future of the Aviation Challenge Bubble

Anyone have any details on the new bubble? I know it was replaced a few years ago, but aside from a couple of pictures, im not sure that I ever really saw and specifics around it. It was certainly needed, that much is for sure. The old one was covered in patch jobs and leaked a lot. I'm fairly certa...

Re: Smell

Late to this conversation but there is a perfume called "Twilight Woods" (either Bath & Beauty Works or some generic knock off)- and it smells I swear legit like the Hab. I haven't figured it out. Sweet disinfectant? I'm not sure but I love it. I have spent over a decade thinking I was INSANE! Some...

Re: A Sad Day Indeed...

I know this is an incredibly old post, but I think both railcars are condemned now. When I was a Crew Trainer in 10/11, the far railcar was in fact condemned and locked up tight, but the one closest to the O-Club was still the office. The DMZ for staff was in the back of the land trailer. My first s...

Re: Where is everyone now?

What a world! Vincent helped me reclaim my old account after 10 years! Some of the told stories I'm reading have got me ROLLING! I attended AC five times between 2003 and 2007 as Mach II, Mach III, and Mach III-12 Day (Now Elite). I was fortunate enough to go back as a Crew Trainer in 2010 and 2011 ...

im embarrassed to admit that I've had that VHS for a number of years now. I think I last watched it when I was in high school and home sick. Yearning of a view of the good ole USSRC.
Bugged me though how they were walking on the grass. We're not allowed to walk on the grass lakeside....brats

This is fantastic news! I was lucky enough to get to go to 12-day in 2007 and even though I was too old to go back, I was sad to see the program go. This is great news for campers and the future of Aviation Challenge!

When I went to summer camp, you could get your laundry done (they charged you, but it was reasonable). If space camp is going to do multi week sessions, they should cut a deal with a local cleaner to do the same. They dont do laundry anymore, we had to sweet talk a counselor who I think lived off s...

This is interesting stuff, even for a proud member of the US "Chair Force". I think a lot of us AC junkies are also jet junkies, so its always good to hear about this kind of stuff! THANKS!
