    We call that weather here in Seattle liquid sunshine, unless it is during the last week in August and first week September when it IS actually sunshine.

    I got black Line-X put in my truck over 1 year ago for $495 (short bed over the rail), and I've not been disappointed nor have any regrets at all. It has held up really well under loads of lumber, gravel, and abuse that my 5 year old son can inflict. It seems to be durable enough to withstand most impacts, abrasive enough to prevent any significant sliding of items, and smooth enough to allow some sliding of items when needed. I also did not encounter any problems when I installed my Adrian Steel single lid cross-over aluminum box over it.

    Over the long term, I'll have wait and see just how well it handles moss build up from living here in the Pacific Northwest. :)

    also consistently rated one of the top healthiest cities in US every year. Things considered being general lifestyles, air, water, traffic, availability of medical services, unemployment, etc etc ... the people seem to like that place ... never been there but I'm thinking a visit is in order. I know down here in LA the sun is always supposed to be shining right ?? Well maybe so, but its just so hard to see it through all that smog !!!

    Definitely thinking of trying the Line X now, thanks for the input fellas.

    I've been living here (Everett WA) for almost 12 years now. Moved up here after living in Oxnard CA for 2 years. The biggest immediate change for me was learning how to drive up here after living in southern CA. When the traffic is moving, it is very common here for people to stay in the left lane on the freeway and drive 55-60 mph. So I had to learn to SLOW IT DOWN A BIT and learn to pass on the right.

    Here in Everett the water is extremely good tasting, and because of massing water reservoirs we never have a water shortage in the summer. I can ski, scuba dive, go fishing (fresh & salt water), crabbing, rock climbing, hiking, etc all within 60 miles of here.

    My house will be paid off in 13 years, so I'll probably just stay here and retire in 24 years and live here the rest of my life.

    No stop that. You're giving away our Northwest secrets. Remember now, it rains all the time, it's cold, and the people are anything but friendly.

    Truth be told the Northwest is great. While we don't have many beaches, the coast is gourgeous and about an hour away. Mountains are also an hour away. Now I'm doing it. Did I mention micro breweries? Dang.

    All the best and welcome to the great Northwest.

    Hi neighbor!!
    What are your License to Carry Concealed Pistol laws in OR?
    In WA we can carry them, so that is another secret.....extremely hard to do it legally in CA.
    What Portland needs is a major league baseball team.
    I lost interest in basketball years ago, so the only I-5 rivalry I'm currently interested in is the Western Hockey League (Thunderbirds vs. Winter Hawks). It would be cool to have a MLB rivalry.

    I probably should try to stick to this sites topic................still like my Line-X.

    Unfortuneatly I can't speak to the concealed weapons permit to any degree. Lots of folks have them though. From what I hear, it doesn't take much, a class, and a reason such as carrying lots of cash. Lots of buddies have them but so far I've not needed one. That could be changing though.

    I certainly agree, Portland needs baseball. We've got a decent facility, it houses a minor league team. While I'm not a big baseball follower, all the BS within basketball has taken a toll. Not sure where the biggest problem is with basketball here, think it's lousy management. Once in a while a vendor will offer game tickets, I always pass anymore, it's that bad. Western hockey is affordable and very entertaining. Something you can take your entire family too and still have a few bucks in your pocket. Those kids can play, man o man.

    If we get out of line with improper postings, the admins will straighten us up. PF_Flyer is out there watching.

    By the way, my family moved from the Texas panhandle in 1957, I was five. Except for an eight year stint in uncles Air Force, Oregon has been my home. Wife is rare, she's an Oregon native.

    I have a Line-X that i've beat up pretty well, with no residual marking.

    I also have a conceal permit. Oregon is a "shall issue" state, in other words, unless you have a felony conviction in your past, you qualify for the permit. You can take the handgun safety course, then apply at your local sheriff's office. Permit is $65 every 4 years..
