Today we packed up our stiff at Camp Attitude, and headed south toward California. There was some beautiful scenery in the lower half of Oregon!
We stopped at a a donut shop called "The Happy Donut" Big Mike almost decided to take "the fritter challenge" which is an eating challenge that involves a two pound fritter. It was a blast!
After our stop at the donut shop we got a little lost, and ended up about an hour and a half behind the rest of our caravan. This meant that Big Mike, Dennis and myself had a lot of bonding time.
We finally made it to the California border. This is where I took over driving duties. What I didn't realize was that I was about to take on the windiest road I have ever seen, the redwood highway. It was a little nerve wracking, but in the end we saw some really big trees and got through unscathed. I would have taken a picture, but I was driving.
Lastly we had a delicious dinner at the Samoa Cookhouse that was paid for by an alum of the Oregon State Universitu Pi Kapp chapter. He was a really cool person, and had a lot of stories about working on a Destroyer in the Far East.
When we got to lodging in Eureka we circled up, and someone asked if we could beloved that we didn't even know each other 2 weeks ago. It is unreal that I can be so close to this group of guys who I have known for so short of a time.
