Somewhere in Oregon – “Sagebrush and Freedom” -March 29, 1999

The windows are opened and the scent of sagebrush and freedom pour through us. We move at a lethargic 60 miles per hour, which is okay when you have nowhere to be, and are somewhere in Oregon headed toward Boise Idaho. It’s dark in the van.

A Game is on the radio, Duke vs. UCONN. We’re split on who we want to win but 1/2 of us are indifferent. I spilled Diet Coke on my seat and now I’m sitting in a sticky wet spot.

During commercial breaks (which seem longer than programs these days) we tell our “back in the good ol’ days” stories. So far we’ve heard about “The Largest Acorn” from Chris Soucy, and the one about “The Sinking Boat and Wet Oreos” from Mr. Mcrae.  I told a story about the time I had to have a spinal tap, and Nisa told us that when she was younger, she threw herself through a glass door because her mother insisted she come in for dinner. What a strange and wonderful group we have.
