    So how many K5 owners in Oregon are on here? And if so, how many have their ColoradoK5 stickers on their vehicles?

    Dan, I am currently living in Western Pa, but will be moving to Portland metro area (probably Clackamass) in early June. Lived in Portland for 8 years prior to relocating to PA. 3 years ago, can't wait to get back to what we call home! Gotta love it there, man.........everything a guy could want.......snow, mud, sand, beaches, etc. Will let you know when I get there, we can get together to BS and gawk at our Blazers.......mine's a 79 too.........can see in in picture gallery under Frank Twardoch's 79.......your's is great, by the way. Love the website, can't wait to see it in person.

    Oregon is definetely a great place to live, there is just enough sun to make you think that you're not positioned under a rock, and more than enough rain to keep things greeeen! The 4x4ing here is varied enough to make any wheeler happy.

    Dude, you gotta get me your email address. Mine is ftwardoc@mail.portpack.com..........My father in law has 4 acres of property up in Ocean Park (just north of Long Beach), we spend a lot of time up there, and yep, wheeling on the beach is awesome there. Always go there for 4th of July, Labor Day (great rod run every labor day weekend). Drop me a line on e-mail.

    It's about 12 miles west of Chehalis Wa . Alot of logging roads have been closed up but during hunting season most are open . There are few roads still open . I'm not a real serious off roader anymore . Just like to travel and look.
