    1. Just because there have been gas stations at the last four freeway exits doesn't mean the NEXT four will have gas stations......:doah:

    2. People in Oregon listen to WAY too much country music.

    3. In Oregon, it is illegal to pump your own gas at a gas station, unless you intimidate the pump jockey a little bit.

    4. Styrofoam coolers never stop squeaking, even when the truck is shut off.

    5. Driving 58 MPH on the freeway in Oregon/Washington/Idaho in a truck with California tags virtually ensures that 1 out of every 15 drivers will give you the bird.

    6. In California, calling a store clerk "honey" is out of line. Calling her a "chick" is even worse.

    7. In Idaho, a mint condition V3500 gets more stares than a Ferrari.

    8. NEVER leave a Subway sub in a cooler full of ice overnight, unless you are damn sure that the ice won't melt.....

    9. Cingular Wireless searches far and wide in order to recruit the BIGGEST RETARDS ON THE PLANET to man thier "Customer Service" phones.

    That's all I can think of for now.

    Dood, Oregon is testing a new deal that installs GPS trackers in cars to track your annual mileage...so instead of taxing gasoline, they'll tax you on your miles. Maybe it's just me...but I don't like the idea of the govt. installing GPS trackers in my vehicles....good thing I don't live there.

    Canuck country singer (lives in Calgary, BTW) Ian Tyson made a song about the M.C. Ranch in Oregon...interesting with you being canuck and noticing they love the country music...:thinking:

    And yes....cingular reps are tards...:D

    In CA it would be 15 of 15 and 13 of the 15 would try very hard to kill you. So you found the kinder, gentler part of the U.S. west. Be thankful.

    I am going to go with one out of every 10. I live near a college town and the kids from cali who are smart will get Idaho plates in short order

    Couldn't agree with 7 more we may be backwards but we know a good truck when we see one.

    1) BT,DT; pushed the car.
    3) My fuel filler door still isn't right after the ****tard in Grants Pass got thru with it. See below.
    5) CA plates in any other state are a recipe for diaster.
    6) "M'am" will get your head spinning too. :eek1:
    8) One hyphonated (sp?) word is the cure: Zip-Lock ;)

    Road trips are the best.

    i was in jersey the last 2 weekends and their gas was more expensive than here, must of just been the parts i was in, and i find it very strange that they dont let you pump your own gas...handing a gascard to the guy with a turban is kinda unsettling
