I have recently returned back from a two day backpacking trip as part of my orientation here at the University of Puget Sound. I must admit it was one of the coolest welcoming activities I have ever attended. Of course it did rain the entire time, but I guess that's what I must learn to expect in the land of the northwest coast region.
My roommate is a pretty cool guy and his computer knowledge has far surpassed mine, but I don't think he even has an E2 account, so I still rein in that domain. We're in the "outdoorsy" themed dorm, SCHIFF which aparently means we get first dibs on all the outdoor trips that the Student Body plans. I've already got a chance to tour the area on my bike, and so far it's been pretty amazingly beautiful.
I've just been informed of the Bumbershoot Festival and am planning on attending Saturday and maybe Monday to see the following:
Pedro the Lion
Face to Face
Built to Spill
If you are in the area shoot me some mail and maybe we could do a little noder-half-meet or something.
