The Sandwich Tour: On the road again
Track Town USA: The University of
Oregon Ducks have a home game tomorrow at Autzen Stadium and another home
game next Saturday. Sandwiched between attending both games, DT and I will
be touring around a bit in Oregon. Thus the name of this trip: The Sandwich
Tour. (Oh, yeah, we will probably eat a few sandwiches too.)
Again, we loaded-up the Honda with everything we will be needing for the
next week - including all the required paraphernalia for two tailgate
parties - and drove to the RV storage unit, stuffed all the stuff in the
bus, and were on the road ONE HOUR from the time we left our house. New
World Record. We are getting really good at this RV organizing!
Of course, we were only going another 90 minutes south, to Eugene. We are
camped at Premier
RV Resorts (I-5, exit 199).
New developments in our motorhome! We have given up the TV satellite dish at
the house in favor of cable, and have switched our satellite system in the
bus to a "RV package". Tonight was the first time we have been able to
receive networks over our satellite system. Very exciting... not to mention
we get a feed from the east and west coasts.
New developments in our motorhome! I cannot get my satellite internet system
to work. It is not like I am an idiot and this is the first time I have used
a satellite internet system. I have been using satellite internet basically
since the inception. Possibly I knitted the layette. No matter. My system
can find the satellite out there in the heavens, but my modem is not
speaking to the satellite. Hopefully it is just a little spat the the kids
will have it figured out by tomorrow. Even my usual stables of gurus are
stumped though, so it could be a long week for me. The RV park in Eugene has wifi, so I am good for today... but see, I kinda like the internet... not to
mention it is ultra-convenient for processing orders of my book. (Did you
know I sell a
book over the internet?)
This is what a RV park just outside Eugene, Oregon looks on a game-day eve:
The Magna Peregrinus - so dirty! No worries, a crew is arriving to
give her a bath in the morning.
People are ready for the first home game
After settling-in to our campsite, we went to our favorite
with Rob. Rob was DT's assistant during the planning of the Olympic Trials
and has since gone on to bigger and better things with the Oregon Track
Rob stacked his onion rings on top of his steak for this photo
Are you shocked? I had steak frites!
Until my next update, hopefully from a victorious Autzen
Stadium, I remain your GO DUCK correspondent.
