My trainer was out sick yesterday so I had the opportunity to drive around and get familiar with some of the Nampa City geography.
I started my geography lesson at the Mr. Hotshine car wash so I could get the Chief’s car looking spiffy again. From there I headed to Fire Station Number 4 on Flamingo. I am familiar with this location as it is near my grandparents retirement community. Once I arrived I decided I’d have a little fun with my scavenger hunt and take selfies at each location.
I had not been to the new Nampa Christian High School.
I quickly found it but got a little lost from there. I didn’t realize I was as far west as I was and was thinking if I went west from the high school on Flamingo I would get to Midland…wrong! I ended up on Midway and knew I was too far from my planned next stop. I decided to veer from my plan and continued south towards Lone Star Middle School.
I knew from there I was now back on my route and between Middleton and Midland so I headed to Roosevelt Elementary. I spotted the park before the school itself.
I headed back to Midland to try and find West Middle School. I used to live off Davis Avenue and remembered this middle school as soon as I spotted it.
The Willow Creek Elementary sign was easy to spot and I thought the school was that old abandoned church. I decided to investigate further and drove down Elementary Lane to find the school itself.
My last stop before heading to the Treasure Valley Marketplace was Nampa Christian Elementary, which I knew right where to go.
Despite being nervous to drive the Chief’s car I am glad it had the direction display. It really helped me to put together the roads I am familiar with and the direction of travel I was driving. This helps me visualize the area better, which is the whole purpose of driving around.
It was an awesome opprotunity and I look forward to going again sometime.
