I'm good for a meet-up for lunch mañana if it's reasonably walkable from the UofO campus. The Bridge on Franklin, McMenamins on 19th...Taylors or Rennies on campus. All have decent pub fare (Bridge is probably the best). Track town pizza has an OK buffet with soup/salad/pizza. Shoot me a PM. I'll be on campus near 0600 tomorrow. I usually do lunch about 11:30. I can spot you +/- 15 minutes

I have been seeing in the last 5 or 6 years or so a slow migration of employees from the National Parks to BLM. To advance in paygrade, many need to transfer to a different park.

Congratulations on the new job. KEN
This works out well for me because it will meet my Co-op/Internship requirements and I get paid. Most are un-paid.

Happy Fathers day BUMP!!

Shakedown run on the bee-um-vee to Newport and home the fun way (wolf creek and clay creek) exposed a little autobahn burner; rpm's, momentum and style are key when wringing out all 103HP from the 1800, 28 years and 250K but grinning all the way.
