Oregon Trip

“If you show somebody their future, they’ll have no future.
You take away the mystery, you take away hope.
Wow, it’s been a while since I blogged. I’ve been really busy with other things that I didn’t get a chance to update my blog. I guess that only tells one thing… I spent less time in front of the computer and more  outdoors. That’s right!!! It’s summer! The sun doesn’t set until 8:30PM, I will take advantage of the sun as much as I can. Well, let me start talking about my trip to Oregon. If I were to describe Oregon in one word in the month of March, I would say….”FREEZING”. But I enjoyed it since I don’t really get to experience 12inches of snow and zero degrees temperature. 
I am not sure if I can remember every single detail that happened during the trip but I’ll try my best. The trip was scheduled from March 30 – April 3. The night of March 28th, I looked in the mirror and had the urge to shave my head. I stared in the mirror for a few minutes and finally opened the cabinet, grabbed the hair clipper, a mirror and began cutting my hair. But of course, something had to go wrong!!! I couldn’t line up the back of my head. Here’s the bad news, the bad news is that the time was around 10:30PM. The barbershops were all closed! The good news is… I just saved a bunch of money by switching over to Geico! LOL.. Here’s the real good news, my friend Jeff was still awake and he agreed to fix my hair! So I drove to his place so he could fix my hair. It looked really nice except I looked like a thug from the projects. Even I got scared! LOL. But that’s not the point of this blog, so I’ll stop talking about my hair and begin talking about my trip.
- The night of March 29, Richard and I drove up to San Francisco.. Okay, I’m not gonna lie, he drove! lol. 
- We left at midnight and arrive at his brother’s apartment around 7AM. We had a few stops.
- We rested for about an hour and got in the car and off to Oregon.
- The drive was about 7 hours but I slept most of the time.
- We got a little lost but after about 30 minutes, we finally found the place we were staying. I forgot the name but it’s something that ends with Creek. lol
- We started unloading and we decided to checkout the little restaurant across the street from the cabin. Their pies were amazing! Richard had Boysenberry pie (He got it because it started with Boy. LMAO)
- We checked out the creeks around the cabin. I felt at home! Lots and lots of trees! I like the great outdoors so I really feel relaxed when I’m outside surrounded by trees. 
- After about an hour, we decided to head back to our cabin. 
- Our cabin had no cellphone reception! No Internet! at least most of the time!
- The next day, we decided to go snowmobiling. I’ve never been on a snow mobile so this was really fun!
- At first, the guy renting out the snow mobiles didn’t want to rent it to us since it’s a bit dangerous. The weather was unpredictable and the snow was really thick and mostly powder. He was scared that we might end up in the lake. So he told us that the only way he’ll rent out the snowmobiles was that if we had a tour guide. So we all agreed since we were already there and wanted to get on a snowmobile. 
- Our tour was about 3 hours, I think. I can’t remember but I know it was pretty long! (that’s what she said!. lol)
- Our tour guide was really good! He allowed us to free play in the meadow for about 40 minutes. He also let us borrow his snowmobile. That thing hauls! I went all the way up to 50mph. I was scared to go any faster since it felt like I was going 100mph. The snowmobile can go up to 120mph.
Here are the pics of our snowmobiling adventure!

Oregon Snow Fun
