The experience was amazing and one i would defiantly recommend. I even manged to get some use from our new GoPro, but the video i got is so big that i cant upload it with this blog. I'll save the 40 minute video for you lucky few who happen to see me in the coming months. One down side about the experience was Leslie's reluctance to use the accelerator, at times i think she could have walked the Dunes faster. This also resulted in Les getting her ATV stuck three times which resulted in me having to use my incredible strength to free her hog
After a quick lunch back at the camp, we set out on the 1 hour 40 minute drive inland to Eugene to watch our first baseball game of the trip. And what better game to kick us off than the single A match up between the mighty Eugene Emeralds (San Diego Padres feeder club) and The Boise Hawks (Chicago Cubs feeder club). The game itself was not the greatest and ended with us leaving after two hours with the game still in the bottom of the 3rd. Yes you read that right baseball fans 2 hours and they are still in the 3rd inning, I would not be surprised if the game is still going on now! Note to all my gambling friends out there, don't waste your money on the Padres winning a world series any time soon. The Emeralds are terrible.
The stadium was pretty impressive, and situated on the University of Oregon campus. Also the temperature jumped about 20 degrees from what it was on the coast which was the perfect excuse for Les to treat herself to a snow cone. It was also the perfect excuse for me to sample every beer in the stadium (Les will be driving home tonight me thinks).
