Even though my friends and I prefer living in Eugene, Oregon, we tend to get bored doing the same things over and over.
Both of us have gone hiking in the Fox Hollow Trailhead, Skinner Butte Park, Martin Street Trail, and Wild Iris Ridge Park on several occasions.
Both of us attend games at Autzen Stadium and concerts at the Hult Center of Performing Arts. Sporadically we have to get creative with our recreational activities if we’ve gone to the same arenas around the neighborhood repetitively. It used to be fun driving down interstate 126 in the middle of the night so we could stop and smoke marijuana along the banks of Fern Ridge Lake. Getting high and exploring the outdoors is simple in Eugene, however there are plenty of fun indoor endpoints as well. Recently we all stopped at a cannabis dispensary to buy marijuana edibles to eat as we walked into the front doors at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. These were some serious cannabis brownies with 150mg of THC in every serving. By the time we got our tickets and were inside the Museum, I could recognize the effects beginning to kick in. Both of us were so high during our trip at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art that we couldn’t like anything past being in awe at how deranged every aspect of the world felt while on so much cannabis. By the time we left the museum and started heading home, the cannabis was finally starting to wear off. The next time my friends and I want to get high before doing something fun in Eugene, I guess we’ll stick to the nature trails or similar scenic attractions.
