tl;dr: I went on my first camping trip in Oregon with friends and here are the photos. Lately I have been feeling that Instagram and Twitter are not enough to express my experiences (and existence) in its entirety. In Instagram the photos are too small and barely able to see the details. Twitter…sometimes I can say things short, and other times I can’t. So here is the long version of my weekend.
Joel and I last-minute bought a cast-iron skillet from Fred Meyers. It is a Lodge brand skillet and I don’t think I’ve ever spent a better $17.
Tofurkey veggie dogs +
Tomatoes and cucumbers from our garden. The potato salad is from some local company called Reser’s. It was delicious!
Some good fire/log action of Sam.
Right before I went to bed, I thought to myself…what do I really not want stolen off the picnic table…? So I grabbed my bottle of Irish whiskey and put it at the foot of my sleeping bag 😉
I think this photo perfectly captures how Bunny feels about Margaret. It’s like the most heart-twisting love story ever told.
Then I asked Joel to take a picture of us around the campfire:
So Hau offered to re-take the photo:
This is kind of important. We made eggs and RICE over the campfire 🎉 🎉 🎉
Growing up in Japan I recall making rice (and Japanese curry) while camping so I thought I’d give it a try. It took maybe 30 min or so but the rice turned out puuurrrrrfffeect yaaaaaassss!!!
We could see grass and crabs in the water. It was really serene.

Then we drove down to Pacific City, OR to see the Haystack Rock.
Last but not least, Bunny bundled up in a blanket on a camping chair.
Also shout out to our friends Stuart and Shannon, who originally came up with the idea of camping with this group of friends, but had to cancel last minute because Shannon got sick :( We hope you’re feeling better Shannon!! We thought of you both the whole time! We missed you, hope we get to camp with you next time!!
Cheers to a wonderful weekend!!!
