Finally, though, we had to say goodbye to Seattle and, directing the silver bullet east, we headed to Spokane, WA.
Adam greeted us as we arrived in Spokane; he brought us to The Bulldog for a Kennel Klub post-game party. The Kennel Klub is a social club at Gonzaga that gets together to cheer on the Bulldogs for every home basketball game. With the help of a few special keychains, Adam was able to get us in with free beer the entire night. All of a sudden we were thrown back into the college life: tons of people to mess with, lots of pretty ladies, and plenty of alcohol. When people asked "are you brothers?" I would respond with "yes, we're identical twins".
Lisa flew in from Sedro-Woolley to recruit engineering students for Janicki Industries, and while she was in Spokane she invited Adam, all his roommates, Pete and I to dinner at The Onion. When the server came around to take drink orders I ordered a large mug of Newcastle Brown, forgetting that we had purchased two full kegs just an hour before. The food was fantastic: a juicy pink steak, baked potato, ginormous onion rings.
That night were the drinking game olympics. We played beer pong, beer hockey, the web, quarters, about every drinking game you could think of (besides counterclockwise). Adam's friends and roomates are fun guys, and they sure do love to drink. For the next few days we hung out and partied with them, took a walking tour of the Gonzaga campus with Lisa and Patrick, and took the silver bullet in for maintanence.
On our final day in Spokane, Pete and I decided to change things up a bit. The Riverside Park in Spokane is a year-round attraction situated in a park surrounding the Spokane River, a body of water known for being one of the most polluted in the country.
Our rough plan was to stop by Dillon, Montana to see the grandparents before hanging out with our brother Jasen for a week or so in Colorado. Pete received word of a well-paying job in an engineering company back in Louisiana that he needs to get to as soon as possible.
