Hey all you Oregonians. I spent a few years living in Oregon and all of my wife's and my families live in Oregon. They all live in and around the McMinnville area (about 40mi south of Portland on 99W).

Any Caliber owners from Oregon on the board here?

I used to windsurf up there a lot... at Hood River local (and would go into Portland on the weekends). Met lots of people... mostly likely did meet any of your relatives though. Beautiful and green country up there.

Salem to Hillsboro--that's not too bad of a commute. I'm guessing a large part of your commute is on I5. My father-in-law does a McMinnville to Portland commute every day.

Vancouver puts on one of the best 4th of July fireworks displays in the country.

I go there about once every decade and tour Fort Stevens. I hear they are putting some of the guns back in that place for display.

I'm from just north of Seattle. Saw the fireworks talk & thought I'd kick in my 2 cents. While flying back from Lake Tahoe during the night of July 4th once, I used my binoculars to view the fireworks in many communities down below from 30,000 feet. Maybe I saw the fireworks in Vancouver, Seaside & McMinnville! Who knows! Another July 4th nite, I was on a 1300 foot ridge with a spotting scope, & saw fireworks in a dozen communities(including 2 in Seattle) spread across a 50 mile region from Marysville, WA to SeaTac airport. Hey, optics are cool & RULE. Ya can even see moons circling Jupiter & galaxies 500million light years away! Really, I got more than 2 cents worth.

Hi Oregonians...Caliber Northwesterners on another Caliber website are thinking of having a Caliber gathering sometime in the Spring of 2007...maybe in the area of Mt. Rainier. You're all invited too. No details have been figured yet, altho one Dodge dealer is interested in hosting. Grace & peace to all... litesong
