Postcards from the Road – Safeco Field

Who knew there would be a 5 car pileup in Easton, Washington.?

Who knew that it would be a quick game?
(Mariners won 2-1)

I listened to it on the radio during the traffic backup. If the game had been of normal length, I might have gotten there in time.

And even though I had a ticket….they wouldn’t let me into the gift shop (that was open when I got there)

On to Oakland…

Dateline: Flagstaff, AZ

Hello – Mission Control here.

Base is settled into his motel room in Flagstaff, AZ.

Earlier this evening he was rear-ended by a driver who somehow failed to notice the 2011 Chevy HHR was waiting at a stop sign to make a turn. The impact flattened both rear tires and shattered the glass in the rear door. Base smacked his jaw pretty hard on the steering wheel and his back is bothering him, but he is otherwise fine. We suspect bruises and other pains will surface as time goes on.

We have business to tend to tomorrow and hopefully we can get him on a train out of Flagstaff in the next few days. He’s a little disappointed that he couldn’t complete his adventure, but is still certain is can be done.

As a aside, the Arizona Diamondbacks won this evening’s game 14-5, due largely because Base couldn’t make it to the game to jinx then (the other 4 home teams lost with him in attendence).

Sorry Marlins.

Again, from both of us, thank you for the well wishes! He can’t wait to tell you everything upon his return to Michigan.
