Morning Oregon!

Just formally joined this group, however, I've been registered on FTE for many years.

Started here with a 01 Ford F-250, then a 04 F-350 dually. Last vehicle was an 07 Ranger, that I towed behind a motor home.

Now, I just got a 13 F-150. So far, I have been really impressed with it.

Just wanted to drop in and say hello!

Been in Hillsboro ever since I transplanted.

Got stationed in Portland in the 90s and retired in 98 after a couple of other tours where I left the family here.

Did not want to go back to the east where I had to shovel snow!

Belated good evening and welcome aboard Chief.

I'm in Sheridan - the folks have a farm between Ballston and Perrydale - 12 miles north of Dallas which I probably spend about as much time at as I do at home.

I just use what works, and the AK simply will NOT quit.
In the words of a US commander in Vietnam, "The only way to stop a AK from firing, is to kill it's user."

Very, very nice!

Yeah. I'm kind of a nut too - so it looks like I fell into good company!

As to the AK - it's and outstanding weapon. Don't change what works!
