At FishDuck.com we take very seriously your trust in our product. We know that you come to us for insightful football analysis, crack reporting of breaking news and humor as if from the Gods of Mirth.
But did you know the travel and tour arm of FishDuck.com is your one-stop shop as a travel resource? Each year, FishDuck.com hosts a bus tour of the places our Ducks will be playing in the following year. So climb aboard.
Package 1 — “See Detroit … if you dare”: The Ducks will be visiting East Lansing Sept. 12, for a return date to wax Michigan State. Since the motto of East Lansing is “As boring as Lansing, only a little to the right,” your friendly host has negotiated a stop in one of America’s most bustling metropolises and tourist meccas: Detroit.
While in the Motor City, you will be treated to .5 star accommodations in the Vanity Ballroom:
Package 2 — Rocky Mountain Higher: By this summer, weed will be legal in Oregon. Some Oregonians think it’s about time we smoked it all. Others are less sure. But weed has been legal in Colorado since 2012 and a food group for locals since 1964.
Look at it this way. If you are a baseball fan, you likely played the sport when you were a kid. But you wouldn’t pass up a chance to see Mike Trout take BP. Take this opportunity to go to Colorado and see a group of people stoned since birth.
Package 3 — The Experience-Losing Project: Seattle is home to many wonderful things. Boeing, Starbucks, Nordstrom and Grunge all had their beginnings in the Emerald City. But did you know Seattle wasn’t always called the Emerald City? That title used to belong solely to Eugene. But the political leadership in Seattle decided to cash in on the envy Husky fans have for Ducks. Their faces are a lovely shade of emerald, aren’t they?
Tickets for Fishduck.com bus tour packages one and two are $299 apiece for double occupancy, and $449 for single. Tickets for the Seattle trip are $149 apiece for double occupancy, $269 for single and $1.83 if you agree to moon Husky Stadium from atop the Space Needle.
Contact Charles Fischer between the hours of 2:00 and 4:00 a.m for more information on how to purchase your spot.

Kim Hastings is a 1984 graduate of Northwest Christian College. He cut his journalistic teeth as sports editor of a paper in his home town of Fortuna, CA, and, later as a columnist for the Longview Daily News in Longview, WA.
He saw his first Oregon game in 1977 and never missed a home game from 1981 until a bout with pneumonia cut his streak short in 1997. He was one of the proud 3200 on a bitterly cold night in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1989 for the Independence Bowl, and continues to be big supporter of Oregon sports. He is an active participant on the various Oregon Ducks messageboards as “TacomaDuck.”
For Greybeards … the EYES Have it!
Want to know a secret about web behavior? Readers don’t like long stretches of sentences in comment posts without any breaks, and most readers don’t even like long paragraphs.
Break it up! After every third sentence in your post…hit “enter” on your keyboard twice if your computer is a PC, or “return” twice if you have a Mac.
This creates natural breaks between scads of sentences, and so many of us thank you for making it easier on our “Greybeard-age” eyes!
