Since KP will provide most of what they need (at least what is not on the packing list), I was curious what parents are doing for HS graduation gifts? I have long been planning to create a memory as the last father-son outing before he goes off on his big adventure. Since we both ride motorcycles (at least we both do up until July 9th), I thought we'd take a road trip. Leave CA and go North for a clockwise ride around Oregon. No plan. No agenda. Just the road and us for this last father-son experience while he is still, well let's face it, a boy. And I figure his life will be planned to most exacting details soon enough, so we would just go where we felt like going and see what we feel like seeing. I know somebody will say wrap him in bubble wrap, but we will be careful. I also felt strongly about this because I say my Good-bye's July 4th (his 18th B-day) at the AMTRAK station. I will be taking my younger son and a good portion of my scout troop to Philmont Scout Ranch. I will be in at a place on the trail where I have fond memories with my oldest son when we were at Philmont when he was just 14. I won't be there for INDOC Day, and it will be killing me not to help my wife with this. She's going to be a wreck. But we were both Army officers, and she will know the drill. It's just that this time it's her son's turn to serve. I was just curious if there were any creative ideas out there. We start our trip in the morning.
