Erik and Dawn
Surprisingly decent breakfast of tamales and tea at Revolucion Coffee House next to the hotel, as people slowly gathered themselves from the night before. Collected our rides (thanks for the surprisingly decent Hyundai Sonata, Hertz!) and off to Hood River, stopping on the way for bottled water and snacks to assist recovery.
Rehearsal was best described as very Erik, shall we say. After making everything up as we went along things seemed to work out. Well, that and making sure we did more than one practice run!
Pine Street Kitchen hosted an excellent rehearsal dinner, with surprisingly good saukerkraut for an Italian place. Pizza, pasta, cheese, cookies, beer, and of course, lots of socializing, especially from the Melin side of the family!
Wrapped the night up hanging out with Majed and family back at the hotel, 'cause in such a short weekend, you have to make the time to see everyone when you can!
