    Hello,


    My wife and I have driven up and down the coast of Oregon several times and taken inland routes in Eastern Oregon the other times. We have always enjoyed coastal driving and sights. The spots along the Oregon coasts are one of a kind and we appreciate its beauty each time as they are some of the best driving coastal road trip areas. Those listed “Sea Stacks” are what makes the Oregon coast cool and definitely different. It is different than the So Cal coastline, but the ocean is what draws us to specific spots. There is something about being close to the ocean or what the ocean provides all of us in return.

    The Oregon coast and cities were the first place that we saw those crazy signs posted along the highway that say tsunami hazard zone. The roads were right at sea level and running along the flat beach towns. But the sea stack areas still had the signs, only near the lower level flat land beach zones. Growing up in So Cal beaches, we never saw anything resembling a tsunami warning or something headed our way.

    But, to drive miles and miles along the Oregon coast and seeing those signs gave us a weird feeling. The closest thing to a Tsunami was the Dana Point Harbor waters in So Cal swirling in and out. It also swirled inside of the harbor with the water level rising. But there were no signs like the Oregon coastline. Then a year or two later, we noticed the similar signs posted all long the sea level streets of the Dana Point Harbor. There is higher ground just beyond the sea level harbor, so we all knew where those signs point and direct anyone.

    Luckily, we live high up in the coastal hills and if by chance a “BIG ONE” comes, it won’t get to us. Those Oregon sea stacks serve as a wall or something big to break up any mass of water. But, again, that part of the Oregon west coast is in the Pacific Current Zone that is a doorway to those big storm surges.

    A friend took one of those Tsunami Hazard Zone signs and made a big wave rider with the guy climbing up a slope. At the time I thought nothing of it, but a few chuckles.

    We also like the area where you live as it was a wonderful drive with plenty of stops Eastward from the Portland area. That road trip(s) made us feel wonderful with all of the great scenery and surprises along the river. But, those coastal zones create some powerful "rusty" situations, so perhaps that old truck was a recipient of such blasting of salt air.

    Several years ago I was vacationing in Oregon and came upon this truck advertising a local brewery. It became the inspiration for the naming of my orchard and the logo on my avatar. Unfortunately the brewery was closed so I didn't get a chance to taste the beer. Maybe next trip.

    Does any one remember this company in Mineapolas, Minnesota. It was painted over with a paint brush in a light blue many years ago and then faded almost all off. 100_3599.JPG

    I had several favorites as a kid.
    One was The Falstaff Can! Primer gray 55 Shivel-lay with full size Falstaff beer decal/drawing on the door. Prolly the first "stocker" pull the front tires off the ground.
    The other was called DEFIANCE.A picture of a big bird swallowing a mouse but the mouse had his arm & fist out of the birds mouth & around the birds throat keeping him from totally swallowing the mouse. (I guess you would hafta see it to understand it)
    Just sorry I didn't snap a picture of them.

    Painted this for a local flooring company this summer. The owner obviously likes the patina'd look. 100_3791.jpg
