I hope to both learn from and add knowledge to this forum. I like what I have seen here. I am a country boy from Oregon but have also lived in Washington, Idaho, and Alaska. I live in what I like to call the coastal rain forest but have a passion for the High desert areas. I also love to hike the high mountains and fish the lakes that I find up there. I also enjoy Deer and Elk hunting when I can afford it and can find the time. I have a black thumb and leave the gardening to my wife.
