Today Gary, Betty (his '64 Impala) and Hoover stopped to visit me on their way to a car show in Coeur D'Alene ID. It was about 80 and the wind was dead calm. Perfect weather to be out on the road. We met up at my house and spent a while gawking over Betty and chatting with my mom, gave him the visite guidee, and then we headed into town for a good old fashioned burger at Campus U Totem, where Ian and Jesda were once spotted. We talked cars and pondered the most fundamental mysteries in life. Then, with full stomachs, we picked up some dog food at Fred Meyer and I took the wheel. I was soon after viciously attacked by Hoover. Got home and had a mini photo-op, and Gary took Sandy out for a spin. Meanwhile, Hoover inspected my back yard. It was a good day.

Here are a couple of highlight pictures. (There are 38 total, so I don't want to make CF explode.) If you want to see the rest, here they are. (Gary, the Photobucket album is full resolution, so you can download them from there.)

Haven't had much of a chance to post, but I had a great time yesterday. It's always fun meeting friends I've made here in person. And I'm always happy to show off my car and my dog!

Looking forward to your review.

Campus reminds me of Zips but with much more variety.

Man, I miss Zips.

Kind of like Betty. And my car's ass.

I work across the street from a Zips and I have to say I'm not impressed. Very tiny burgers and soggy fries more like fried leather strips..

Its the location.


Zips has crinkle fries and they are awesome. The big zipper is delicious.

In N Out is ****ing awesome. It's like... the greatest burger place ever. (As far as chains go.) Burgers, fries, and shakes. That's it. There are none in the PNW... The closest is in Redding, CA, about 550 miles away. :nono:
