Amazing Race Finale in Oregon


The final episode of the Amazing Race aired last night on CBS television and it was filmed in Oregon! Even better, they shot the "high adventure" challenge at Camp Tilikum, where my sister Beth and daughter Danielle both worked. "Some of the challenge course elements are attached to 100-year-old Douglas Fir trees as high as 120 feet off the ground," according to the camp's website.

After negotiating the Tilikum ropes course and then a zipline at Bridge of the Gods, the three Amazing Race teams swooped into downtown Portland for their last clues. The teams received one clue at Voodoo Doughnut, my favorite donut shop in the entire earth, universe, and solar system. I'm looking forward to visiting there myself, as soon as we move back.

It was awesome to watch! Hey, you want to be my partner in the next amazing race?

I know you miss home; but I hope we can get together at least once more before you go.

(Maybe I'll drive to you for a change????)

How cool is that?! I love to see places I have been to or know on TV. Voodoo Donut? Sounds ominous, but I should eat a few before I pass any judgement.

Maybe you could be my partner in the Amazing Race? That would be a new twist, partners who really don't know each other in real life.

Beth,
Did you watch in person or on tv? If you got to see them filming, I'm jealous! I'm surprised I didn't see you strolling across in front of the camera.

Angela,
Let's try and get together! So, can you drive to Heidelberg? I'll email you. Hope it works out. It'll be strange not to see you in Sembach each month.

Judy,
I guarantee you'd love Voodoo Doughnut! Tasty delicious. But so fattening...
Ha, that's a good idea, partners who meet for the first time at the race.
