    With only a 30% indigenous population, the better question is what have the outsiders NOT done?

    10) Restaurant

    Weird, i thought Nutria were a Southern swamp thing, as in LA, MS, FL, etc. Do people use them for target practice up there?

    Born in Portland, raised in Clackamas. I love the city, and of course the mountain and coastal areas. In between snowboarding and concerts, I made a fair living at Spirit Mountain.

    Very cool. So are you still in the area? That's one of the things that brought my wife out here to stay...an hour in any direction, you have the greatest skiing/snowboarding on Mt Hood, the best wind-surfing in Hood River, dune running at Florence, the best and most accessible coast on the west coast, some of the best vineyards in the US in the Willamette Valley, so just about any which way you go, there is some of the best of things to do. Not to mention lots of places still to go shooting ;)

    But we'll have to keep that quiet...don't need any more Kalifornians up here or Washingtonians getting ideas of coming down for anything more than Costco shopping :p Ya'll can come and spend all ur money - then leave :D

    I had family in Klameth Falls area (BLY) that raised Paint horses and his son was a 2 time NFR champ in bare back and saddle bronc ridding. I think he daughter even made it to the NFR of barrel racing.

    Hey All the hippies in CA call Oregon Gods country.

    Plus you lazy pukes don't have to pump your own gas. SISSIES...

    The Nutria and Opossum that we have in Oregon came from the south. During WW2 kaiser shipbuilding brought them in for a food source. They would have never made it over the mountain ranges on their own.
