    Hi guys!!! My friend Alex, aka Parapin, is now residing at my little ranch outside of Myrtle Point (on Sitkum Lane) helping me to fix up the place after some tweakers decimated it....

    THE MAN....

    [​IMG]

    Here's his story....

    and this.... a bit more local....

    He's a shy one but is in need of some companionship. If you feel so inclined PM him. While he won't say it I know he'd like some company on some of those loooong winter days. PM him if you can. Better yet, PM him, bring some brews and stop by, say hi and shoot the shit. Interesting guy with a lot of great stories... There's a great side shop off the main shop with a wood stove that is perfect for hanging out on a cold winter day sharing some brews and stories.

    Also, he's looking for work, whether a day job or part time. Very hard and reliable worker. If you know of something send him a PM.

    Thanks!!!

    We're hoping to put together some kinda half assed rally at the ranch sometime next year....:evil

    Hope you all have some great Holidays!!!!

    C'mon guys....


    1 PM in 300 hundred hits....

    Read the ride report...albeit long but amazing....

    I'll grant I'm a cranky old fuck, but really???

    You afraid you might meet a good guy?


    Get to share some good times around a wood stove?

    2 six packs of your favorite brew to the guy that hooks up with Alex and is not impressed and invigorated.....


    My offer stands.......

    BTW...he's really going to be pissed off at this "intervention"..........:lol3

    I only got through the first 5 pages of the ride report and haven't had time for the rest yet. I'll work on it tomorrow night when I'm at work. :huh
    Hell, if I were a little closer I'd definitely be helping out and would love to hear stories! Maybe when it gets a little warmer....

    Read the whole report, probably an adv record setting 4 daysfor 69 pages, took a sick day though, so it's an asterisk record.

    I'll be popping in eventually, definitely when on the way to aprilfools.

    Foo!

    Plagued with mechanical difficulties, I have been relatively stationary until recently. Springfield is a hell of a haul no matter how you look at it, but I'm all in for April Fools.

    I fucking knew it. You gave yourself away with the mass send of an email all about bacon.

    At some point I plan on having one of many impromtu rallies over this way. The sheer number of logging roads and trails around here is mind boggling. I figure I've crashed enough rallies on my travels, it's time to give back. Just gotta get some utilities sorted out first. And a fire pit. Yeah, an awesome fire pit.

    Thanks for the links, Mike. I'll be sure to check them out. I've got so many lures in the water at the moment that it's taking a fair amount of time just to check 'em daily.
