At first, wondered why do we come here and subject ourselves to this abuse? But, eventually got my high wind legs back, and got comfortable. Short sesssion so that we can finally stop camping and get into a real house. Tucker Campground is overpriced, overrated, under maintained, overcrowded, and just to damn far away from town to be the true Gorge experience that I've come to know and love. The Maple site by the river was like camping in a very loud ash tray, although L seemed to like the roar of the river. Go figure. I think i might have the beginnings of a port side shove it. Not sure. Need a witness who knows what one looks like and who knows that i'm trying one. (Mike.) PSB: Full Sail Equinox ESB, direct from the source baby! boo-YEE-Haw! Picked up lots more full sail logo parafanalia for my dorm room. Beer tap handles and banners. Thinking maybe I'll make a mobile or a wind chime out of Full Sail tap handles. PSG: Cheeseburger from said brewery. Lots of fun to walk up all but the last set of the Hood River stairs back to the house!
