    Very cool I'll check it out. We drive through Oakville many times on the way to the beach and back. When it gets jammed up around Olympia fort Lewis we just go the back way. I'd rather drive slow single file than hectic multi-lane.

    Very cool stuff.

    The gallery alone was worth the visit, if you mixing pictures of kids and dogs in with Petes and KWs (and lots of others heavy equipment), you're okay in my book.

    I'm a big YouTube watcher, DirtPerfect just posted a video of previewing an equipment auction, he took his young son along. Very cool video.

    Great site! Nice images, the career button is cool. I tried to to push it... but a guy wearing rigging rags just popped up laughing at me!

    It rains there, a little... heh heh heh. The landscape has a green quality about it and most days it is not hot enough to melt asphalt! Time to load up!

    The climate would be a change for sure. I’ve always been in the Midwest whether down here in OK or up in IL or the great white north of MN. Temps seem more consistent down where I could end up living. Up at elevation I’d imagine things get more interesting.

    Sometimes... It is home for me. I find myself 3500 miles away. Haulback will post a image of a side somewhere on some sidehill... leaves me wanting to pack my rags and cameras and head home.

    Other than in and out making a delivery I’ve never spent much time up there. I’d already be there if not for the kiddos and family here. Those logistics are tough!

    This place is nice if you like algae and fungus. The streams are clear and cold and full of the bugs that cause beaver fever. So many people are moving here from California and surrounding states that houses pop up in tracks faster than mushrooms in the lawn. The houses are stacked together so tight that people live like ants in a hill. The political culture is wacko left on the west side and wacko right on the east side of the state. We have a governor who is the mirror image of the outgoing president who decided he would run for president using the taxpayer's money. We give more rights to criminals, drug addicts and pushers than we do to tax paying citizens.

    The scenery is nice here and there is lots of greenery on the west side of the state. It's just the bait to suck you into the trap.

    I appreciate all the rain we get, if we didn't EVERYONE would want to live here, it keeps some of them away! It also grows trees like crazy, it's all good.

    I've grown accustomed to the not so freaking hot summers here. We'll just not talk about the 4 months starting July 5 that are really too dry. Keep that on the Q.T.
