Oregon trucks!

Well, I might as well start the Oregon thread...where is everyone anyways?

I want to see pictures and hear some stories. Eventually like to get together in our trucks. Do some pics and what not.

Let me know where you all are located, why you bought your truck, just some fun details.

About me:

I live in the boonies...Heppner, a small town of 1000 people. About an hour from the Columbia River. Find Pendleton on a map and go south.

I have dreamed of owning one of these trucks for, literally, as long as I could remember. So, I have to admit that it pleases me as much (if not more) to get into my truck and drive it today as it did the first day I owned it. Even being 4 years old, the newness and delight has not worn off for me.

The thing that I like most about my truck is that I can have some fun with it, but it is also still practical for me as I use it to haul my horses all the time.

The system in it makes the highway miles go fast, and having a 2WD makes mine just a little unique. If I could change one thing, it would be that it was a 6-speed manual tranny. But, life goes on, and I have made do with what I got!

I was born and raised in Benton County for 18 1/2 years does that count?

I was Born in Corvallis and lived in Philomath. Untill i joined the AIr Force that is. I go back about a month each year to visit family, and Oregon it's self (you being an Oregonian I'm sure you know what i mean). I've been in over half the states in the union (including Hawaii, and I'll be in Alaska soon) and I'm always comparing them to Oregon.

You should hear some of the hilarious ideas that people have of OR and Oregonians. like once (in hawaii) some one asked my wife if we have fish in Oregon. FISH!!! for crying out loud, i guess they don't know where Chinook Salmon comes from.

Any way, after re-enlisting tax free in Iraq i brought half of my 56K dollar bonus with me to Oregon just to buy my PSD and my wifes new Freestyle at Willson Motors in Corvallis. NO SALES TAX ROCKS!!!

That's all i have for now. Maybe we can hang some time.

Change the plates on your vehicle and drive like you have some sense and you'll do just fine.

South Oregon. Medford to be exact. Born in good 'ol Grants Pass, lived in southern oregon most my life.

Longtime member of FTE. Good to see a Powerstroke-only website.
Looking forward to clubs in my area. I bought my truck for the power, reliability, and I just plain like Ford trucks.

I just got back from elk hunting in the Minam unit, at the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Didn't get anything, and didn't see anything.

To address a couple of things...

First of all, the whole Californian thing...yep, Jwiger pretty much summed it up. Just use some common courtesy on the road when you move up and your be just fine! We would love to have ya, as we know that you will love the beauty here!

The cool thing about Oregon is that you have the coast, then you go east a little bit and you have the wonderful area before the Cascade range that is green, and lush all the time. Then comes the wonderful Cascade mountains where you can ski in the winter, horse back ride in the summer and just plain enjoy at all times. And dont forget that this mountain range is home to the ever breath-taking Crater Lake. As you progress eastward, you get into a much dryer climate, almost desert. And if you are up north of the state, you can run along the Columbia River Gorge, home of some spectacular views and great wind-surfing! On past the desert area and toward the more Eastern end of the state, you find the Blue Mountains which typically have great hunting and camping. Then also, having the great Hells Canyon...even more breath-taking views.

T444E ... sorrry to hear about the plop of a hunting trip. I know that my unit has actually had an over abundance of game this year. Kinda strange that the wallowa area did not. However, the scenery is quite amazing eh?

Also, I would really like to start organizing meets with our trucks when we get enough people willing to make the commute. Which means that we all need to get those stickers on our trucks and also be putting out flyers!

Great to have all of ya!

Willamette Valley here!

I too have always dreamed of a HUGE F350 Crew Cab PSD. Well at least I have the extra cab now. I bought it this last February and fall in love all over again everytime I hop in it.

Turbo.... Great things you said there about Oregon, it truly is a wonderfully diverse state.
