Woodburn Dragstrip

Erik and I went to the Woodburn dragstrip. Fridays are cool, they let anyone run for $25.00. The cars had to be street legal, so there was a great mix of new and classic muscle. Erik liked the imports. Round dinner time we drove into Woodburn to the old town and found a restaurant called Luis's Taqueria on N. Front St. Fresh tortillas, good orchata and the main meal I had was Acodaba. It's a red tangy sauce over beef. Their beans were from scratch and delicious, too. After dinner we returned to the dragstrip and enjoyed the show til dusk. It was FUN!

July 3rd

We went for a drive and lo and behold were in Washington State. Here Erik and Lauren are dwarfed by the "Big Bang". The flag is out, the steaks are ordered and we are looking forward to the Fourth!
