Last week, we were given free tickets to the Trailblazer/Sacramento game in Portland. Tony from Lehigh game them to us. Thank you, Tony, we had a blast. Here is a summary of our trip, which ended up not costing very much at all.
On Sunday morning, November 23, my BFH and I got up, packed and drove to Madras. We ate lunch at The Stag. We met some super nice people there, including a lady named Norma who I still need to send a pair of Indian earrings to. Several people there were wearing Jacoby Ellsbury shirts and jackets ... the local boy who ended up playing for the Boston Red Sox. Yay, Jacoby, we are so proud of you!
After lunch, we drove to Warm Springs and checked in at Ka-Nee-Ta Resort. The man at the desk was super nice to us and gave us a huge king sized room for only $81.00. In the summer the same room would have been around $160.00.

The reservation is open range.
Cows and horses are all over the place.
Little me on the big reservation.

We went next door to Elmer's and had lunch. And we called our friends Lee and Fran to tell them that we were in town and looking forward to seeing them soon.
Lee and Fran came and picked us up. Thank God they were driving ... we are used to wide, rural roads where tailgating is still considered sinful. They took us to the Widmere Brewery, were we had pints and hamburgers. Good choice, Lee and Fran. Thank you.
The next morning, we got up and drove home. What a fun trip, and it was a pleasent surprise that we didn't have to spend a bunch of money to have a bunch of fun.
