On September 20th-22nd, 2010 we went to Spokane for a DOT conference where my wife won an award and had to classes.
Here are some pictures of our trip.
Heading to Spokane. Coming up on the Columbia River.
What a long hi-way across the plains.
Here we are finely checked it to the Red Lion Hotel headed to the Awards Banquet.
Lisa and her co-worker on the board.
The next day Lisa had some classes so I just played on the lab top until she got a lunch break.
Here are some cool glass elevators.
I took the stairs down this time so Lisa did not know I was coming down behind her.
Here we took another glass elevator to the 12 floor to see the sponsors.
Out on the balcony it had a great view.
Looking down on the demo buses.
We went down to check the buses out .
Here is looking back up at where I took the last picture.
If I were in the business, I would like to have a bus like this one.
This one is a little different.
Lisa went to another class so I headed back up stairs. Here is looking from in front of our room door.
This dude was jamming out.
After the last class on Tuesday, Lisa came up to get me for dinner. Here we are riding down the elevator to go to dinner at Northern Lights Brewery. Here are those pictures: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 8ebbcfbbeb
On Wednesday morning I drove out to Riverside State Park ORV Area to check it out. Here are those pictures: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 6a1510ef47
When I got back to town, I took Lisa to do some site seeing before we headed home. There is a cool park across the river from where we were staying.
I want one of these for the kids.
Cool walking bridge.
Lisa was trying to get me to do the Sky ride over the dam. I don’t think so!
A look back at our hotel.
This was different.
This was very strange!
We have seen the TV ads for Chili’s so Lisa wanted to eat there to give it a try. Since there are no Chili’s in Yakima we guess there would be one in Tri-cities since we share the TV station with them. On November 14th, 2009 we wheeled Juniper Dunes near Pasco. We decided to eat in Tri-cities before heading back home. We asked TJ40 where a Chili’s was. He did not know, so he called his wife to have her look it up. The nearest Chili’s was in Spokane. Lisa was not happy to hear that.
On September 22nd, 2010 Lisa finely got to eat at Chili’s. LOL
After lunch we headed home. There were a lot of little twisters a long I-90.
