Track Town USA: I don't know what you think, but I think it has been far too long since I have posted a photo of the beautiful Magna Peregrinus.not flipping-us-off - they were cheering for the Ducks!) Tomorrow the Ducks play USC at Autzen Stadium. It is a sell-out and ESPN GameDay is doing their show from Eugene. Everyone is very (very, very, very) excited for the game tomorrow. (Evidently, some school in Corvallis has a home game too, v UCLA.) Premier RV Resort just north of Eugene, Oregon. We have our usual full-service campsite. On the roof of our bus you can see we have satellite television (the front dish) and satellite internet (the rear dish). This campground has cable television and free wifi... but we like to rely on our own systems. The RV park is "conveniently" located next to I-5, but if you look east, the view is quite bucolic. Rustic. Rural. Pretty even. Speaking of pretty... our kitchen rarely looks this tidy. Tomorrow I am preparing My Famous Mac & Cheese for thirty tailgaters. Imagine this kitchen at nine o'clock tomorrow morning! Goodness. It's not going to be pretty.
But it will smell wonderful. Pizza Margherita from Ciao Pizza in Springfield, Oregon
Our friends arrived to Eugene and we all went out for pizza at the wonderful Ciao Pizza. (Yes, the adorable Satin Chantilly was our server.) A few USC Trojan fans were in the restaurant and we bought them a round. Dang, if they didn't one-up-us and send a round of desserts to our table. We hope this isn't some sort of jinx. As the Trojans were leaving the restaurant, they thanked us and went on and on about how friendly Duck fans were to them since they have arrived in Eugene.
We are ready for the Big Game. Until my next update, I remain, your GO DUCKS correspondent.
