Grumble, brumble, fuss... You just have to hate Oregon. Tonight I have to go Waterskiing/Wake boarding with the family. And I think I am scheduled to be ski patroling the second week in July. Snow skiing in July, dont you just hate when that happens.
Then there is all that pesky public land with all those pesky hiking trails and lakes and mountains and deserts and the ocean and rainforests and ... Sheeeeeesh! When's I guy to get any rest? The kids are dinging me to go sea kayaking, the wife want to hike the obsidian flows near Bend. We hardly use the ski boat now that we only get out on it 6 nights a week!
Like Alta says about Utah, "now Colorado, that sounds like a great place!"
P.S. Slider, what are you trying to do here dude? Remember when Oregon had Ungreeting cards? Those were the days!
