Howdy all...thought I'd drop in and say hi. Please don't hold it against us, but the wife & I just relocated to Beaverton Oregon, from SoCal. Got laid off after 23 years with Siemens...searched for jobs in the great PNW, and I am now working for Providence Hospital at St. Vincent's...2 miles from our house. The wifey poo is still lookin...oh well. Outa the L.A. rat race and lovin Oregon like a cold frosty "Dead Guy"....LOL. Been here 3 months, kinda settled in and comfey, bought me a jeep! Why...cuz I said I would before I left family & friends to carve out a life up here in the trees...we are both very happy. Ordered some new Oregon plates (tree) for the wifey's 4Runner...trying to wash the stench of Cali off us as quick as possible...shouldn't take too long I hope...
But things change and you got to roll with the punches...life's a river, you got to get with the flow, so here we are. And speaking of rivers...HOLY B-JESUS! I'm in love, it's heaven up hear for boaters...damn
The relocation up here was expensive, cost us some serious coin, we sacrificed the toys, but we are here. There will be a new boat in our future...just won't be a 50K hot boat...LOL. But it will be fun and something better suited for the mighty Columbia and overnight camping/fishing etc. Just a "tad" different from boating in Havasu and the AZ desert...we look forward to the change. It's all good rain or shine.
OK, enough jibber-jabber from me...I just had some Moh's surgery today on my head and I'm buzzin on Vicodine and a drop top! Hope to see ya'll on the river soon. Here is a pic from our boat in Havi, and some pic's we took on the Willamette last weekend on one of those monster jet boats rides from OMSI...that was pretty darn fun I must say! We saw 2 Osprey's and their nest, a Bald Eagle eating a fish, lots of bridges, and lots of boaters enjoying the river...we were in love! Hope to see ya out there soon...Robert
