Day 146: Camping Again

Update: 207.2 lbs, 50 lb Goal Reached Day 124. 9 lbs to 60 lb goal.

But it's not quite what you think. I DID have the trailer on this trip, but I'm NOT at any kind of campground per se'. This camp setting involved no registration, it was first come first serve, and there was no hook up for the trailer, so it was a little boondocking for the fellas last night.

If you take a look at the photo above (click for larger image) you'll see a few of the fellas waiting for the sun to rise in front of the South Salem AT&T store...waiting for iPhones. We joined the brave, the proud, and the few that decided to spend the evening beneath the stars -- of course with Xbox, laptops and internet access -- to await the newest geeky device to hit the street.

The Xbox gods were not smiling down on us last night. The plan was to rock the night away, clearing the levels that have been eluding C-dub for a while, but from the quest to find power, to the dead controllers, to the fact that I actually left the Guitar Hero game at home, and just about everything in between that could keep you from plaing video games just never materialized. We cleared a few good levels of Burn Out though....but maybe today we'll make GH happen during the last hours of the quest.

Now, to keep in line with the heart of this blog, let me just say that staying out all night in front of a retail store, does not for a healthy food adventure make. I only really gave into one 4-day old Krispy Kreme, and three Taco Bell soft chicken tacos....oh, and a Jamba Juice. But other than that not too much. I *did* ride 15 miles and play 18 holes of golf in the day, so all in all, I probably balanced out ok.

We're down here all day. If you are a faithful reader and want to hop on down...stop in and say hey.
