Orlando Bingles’ 2011 Summer Road Trip – Day 6 & 7

by Bingle on Aug.18, 2011, under Richard Bingle Family

The next two days of our trip were spent primarily playing boardgames and foosball in the cabin and playing in the waters of Douglas Lake and in general just relaxing.

We had brought several boardgames along on the trip including Alhambra and Pit, but Ticket to Ride probably got the most plays of them all. While the picnic table styled benches weren’t the most comfortable, we did have a nice view out the large windows while we were playing.

The basement of the cabin sported both a smallish pool table and a nice foosball table, but the foosball table saw a whole lot more action than the pool table. There is something satisfying about spinning the foosball handles as fast as possible and the sound of the ball ricocheting off of the walls and the ding as someone scores a goal.

Lake-wise, our time was spent floating on and jumping from a large towable tube that we’d bought for the trip. Karen spent most of her time paddling around in a small blow-up boat that we had last used on Lake Mead. Since the GoPro‘s case makes it waterproof we took a lot of video and stills of us in and on the water.
