The second trip out there was yesterday as I as it was a little bit further out into the usual trips to the area I knew when I was a child. It's past the busy business district of Pleasant Hills and just beyond the shadows of Century III mall. Despite my GPS telling me a more direct route, I drove out to Rt. 51 my own routine way. Little did I know that my GPS got me back for ignoring it's prompts by directing me through Funeral Home parking lot.
When I got there, I was disappointed to see that the gate was locked. Could I have done a similar video standing outside the gate or just wait for another day to go out there again? I was just about to give up and turn around to go home when a bearded gentleman stared quizzically at me through his truck window. I explained to him where I was from and made my intentions clear. He agreed to show me in through the padlocked gate and I set up my camera. I was told that I only had a few minutes while the other kids were arriving for practice. I'm sorry this is short, but hey.. it's still a video.
