Fall means football, hunting, fishing and a change in the weather

Fall is my favorite time of year in Oregon and it always has been.  I am not a fan of hot temperatures so the fall brings relief.  Nothing is better than a cool crisp October day to bring about that euphoric feeling of all things macho.  Of course, I speak of college football, a deer, elk or bird hunting trip, or a day on the river chasing the elusive salmon or maybe a big sturgeon.  Nothing rivals the pastimes of fall for the outdoorsman in me.

My best weekend would be spent leaving early on Saturday for an OSU football game in Corvallis.  These days start with a hearty breakfast at the Peacock; several hours tailgating with friends, then settling back to watch the beavers win a conference game in the Skybox.  This is college football at its finest...nothing else compares.  After the game, a quick trip to camp in a luxury motor home or fifth wheel in the cascades or maybe the coast range to go deer or elk hunting on Sunday morning.  Up early Sunday morning with meat hanging in camp by noon.  A weekend like that would be one I could savor for years. 

It is rare to be so fortunate as to experience the perfect fall weekend...but at 51 I still have hope that I will live long enough to experience it.

On Monday I am ready to work for my clients getting them the perfect home with the perfect home loan.  That is almost as good as a football and hunting weekend.

Sounds like a great weekend, except for the Beavers.  Go Huskies (maybe next year).

I love the fall season. For me it is the walks along the riverbanks and lakes and bike trails with my camera in hand capturing the multitude of colors in the foliage before they become bare and the winter is upon us.
