2014 – A short visit to Northwest Nazarene University, Nampa, ID

Our stop in Nampa was a short one, less than a 24 hour day. However, we enjoyed meeting friends for coffee and then took a quick walk around the campus of Northwest Nazarene University. Being members of the Church of the Nazarene we’ve heard a lot about this school and it was nice to finally see it in person. There are many original buildings giving it a feeling of history and stability and the campus offers open areas with flowers, fountains, works of art and open areas to enjoy alone or in groups. The plaques were helpful and a reminder of the history of this Holiness institution. It’s easy to see why Nazarenes throughout the northwestern United States are proud of their school.

Shortstop: Garrity RV Park, Nampa, ID

We arrived in Nampa after 330 miles of driving ready to take a couple of nights to recover before doing another 300+ mile day. Garrity RV Park is Passport America and the rate is quite good. The park, itself is handy, just off of I84, right in town, and close to a huge Walmart and a nice shopping mall. I’ve just said all the good I have to say. The park is mainly filled with permanent residents and the average RV age is probably 15 years old. We spent the night, went for coffee with friends, and decided to abandon our prepaid second night. Frankly, had we not just driven a long day and had made plans to meet friends the next day we would have moved on in the first place.
