TOT DAY 4 Oh Rainy Day….
For the first time in the 6 year history of TOT all rides were cancelled due to steady rain. But oddly enough it was one of the best days of the week. It was an opportunity for many to expand their relationships. The Guesthouse Inn where we were staying has a large area where they serve a continental breakfast and it also serves as a games /rec area where guests can socialize. After breakfast many took the time to break out dice and scramble boards . I dragged my Mango in to the lobby and replaced the chain. Meanwhile a lot of men took my suggestion and headed into Spokane to REI for shopping and eats at a couple of nice restaurants, A few heartier souls (1 fella and 3 GALS) tempted fate and headed to Wallace to try out the zip lines. My wife and Daughter took off for Coeur d'Alene for a girls day of shopping. Most of the day was spent in just visiting and getting to know each other better. The highlight of the day was a culinary comfort food delight as Dave (aka: Mandrake) cooked up up some Brats, hotdogs, Chicken and or Philly beef wraps under the portico out front of the Hotel Lobby. If you are ever in Boise Idaho on a Friday or Saturday night downtown look for his Gator Dog stand between 10- 3 in the evening. You will get some of the best local fast food in the country! After the meal everyone mustered in the common areas eating and, socializing until bed time.
