So, I visited Boise over the last few days. Should be back in the fall for school assuming everything goes well with housing and finances. I listened to some of the advice you all gave me on where to go? Ended up making it to Bardenay, which I thought was pretty good, don't recall it being mentioned though?, Table Rock was delicious, had the Shepherd's Pie and St. Andrews Amber, Copperhead Red, Orange Blossum, and the Stumbling Monk Belgian Trippel beers. I liked St Andrews best... The Pie was delicious. Also had Pollo Rey? I think is what it was called? Mexican place? I can't remember. Pollo something or other. Anyways.. Made a trip up Bogus Basin which was fun. Especially looking down on the city. Went by the Egyptian theater. Didn't get a chance to go inside though, which was disappointing.
The campus was surprisingly small. I new it wasn't huge, but I don't think i was expecting it to be as small as it really is. Same with the stadium honestly. Although, I guess I put it at an unfair standard having grown up around Neyland Stadium. Glad to finally see it in person though. and the blue. Also, wasn't expecting everything to be so flat. At least campus and downtown areas. That I was not expecting. And I don't remember breaking a sweat which is good, considering it was in the 90's and I believe hit 101? yesterday. I'll take that any day. The lack of humidity? makes the heat tolerable. Spent several hours walking on campus and downtown during the heat. While being on campus, I don't think I have seen so many bicycles in my life. May have to upgrade mine that hasn't been used since I was about 10.
Overall though, I loved the city, and I think my dad did too, but the highlight of the trip had to of been when we were flying from Salt Lake City to Boise. On the plane with Kellen FRIGGIN Moore! No one seemed to recognize him, or care, except me. But I hate being that person who has to have pictures or autographs, so I didn't bother him. Oh Kirby was there too. I saw Kellen in the SCL airport and right when I saw him I was thinking, that's, that's. it can't be. It IS! My initial thoughts were confirmed when they got on the plane and I saw Kirby with him. 4 rows in front of me! haha. I felt like a little kid..
I'll put a few pictures in a comment below, since my dumb macbook won't let me do paste the link into the "import image url" thing...
