Braving adverse flight conditions both my brother and his son made it to Bend yesterday – toting gamer mags and an extra xbox 360 controller across the country Gavin was clearly excited to hang out with his cousin. It wasn’t long before the two boys plugged in and got to it – Halo 3. Our world soon got smaller as they immersed themselves in another. The best part was seeing them talking to one another via headsets – as they sat, um, right next to each other. The headsets came off shortly after they were made aware of the situation. Should be a great week ahead.
