Movin' on

Movin' up to Oregon - Salem to be exact. Leaving the stress and high cost of living and getting recertified in health care - similar to what I did for 20 years in the Air Force before going back to school to get my engineering degree and working in Hi-tech in the Bay area.

Appreciate all the friendship and comraderie that Ya'll have given me over the last 8 years I've had my LT. Had an awesome time with the NorCal bunch - all the way from before the Breckenridge CCR - but it's now time for me to move back to closer to where I grew up - in Portland. Hope to see a lot of ya'll at CCR or possibly WCR or even Ft Bragg - depends on what my class schedule is and, of course, what mama has to say .

John, we'll be looking for you up this way buddy! Some of us frequent the Salem area on a regular basis, so you never know who might drop in on ya. Be sure to tune in to the Pac NW Forum after you get settled. And remember that there are a few of us up here who are more than willing to pitch in if you need any assistance.

Re: Movin' on

Hey John,
I hope you enjoy your new home and the riding in the PNW. I'm sure we'll have another beer or two after a ride in the future, but no more baconizing tires in the middle of nowhere.

Take Care

All the best on the new chapter in your life. I sure we'll meet up again somewhere along the road. EXR will be up in Oregon Sept 18-22. I'll give you shout towards the end of summer.

A champagne kind of day........................................and a few smiles before dinner.



A quick painting of the posse at the bridge......



A stop at some different kind of real estate.........



I took the time to sketch this at dinner.
