Some of Travis's friends from work and his previous Boy Scout troop were also there. It seemed half of them worked for the government, the other half were still in college. Some I knew, back from the "Team Chicken Salad" days, and some from a previous party, and some I had never met before. I had great conversations with everyone well on into the night.
His father's property is in a wooded area, and his house has vintage slot machines (complete with a pile of quarters), a pool table, a pinball machine, a old-fashioned baseball-style pinball machine, darts, and a stripper pole. Truly a bachelor's pad, although Travis's father is married to a wonderful lady named Donna. In addition, there are all kinds of Asian and military artifacts scattered throughout in curio cabinets and on the wall.
We brought Ahfu with us, because he's a party dog, and he had a great time. We didn't brig Widget because he's not comfortable with a lot of other people yet, and he gets VERY car sick. Christine played "Cheapass Games" games with a bunch of other people, and CR beat people at pinball and darts.
It was a great Saturday!
