    I'm off! I have only taken 2 days off all year thus far, so I decided to take a week in August. In about 20 mins I'm headed down to Honeyman state park in Oregon (by florence, the sand dunes etc). Should be super good times, especially after having so little time off in the last 2 years. :grin: pics will be posted post-trip. Anyone lookin' for me, don't be surprised when I don't answer PMs/emails. :)

    we're back! great trip. We got to go on a sandrail tour of the dunes. 30 mins of BLASTING around the dunes, it was the bomb....

    those machines are amazing, they can sidehill at like 45 degrees at 35mph and they just hug the sand, not even close to rolling. What a blast! wife didn't like it much, but it was a fun experience, especially since I'll likely never own a sand rail of my own.

    We also got to canoe on Cleawox Lake. That was super fun and cheap too... $8 for an hour of paddling around.

    At night we settled down by the campfire and had some grub. Doesn't get any better than the Legendary Ed Brown (thats my dad) Chili-Corn-Tomale mix! This stuff is great... real man food. :grin:
