    If you stand on a deserted corner in the rain waiting for the "Walk" signal, you live in Oregon.



    If you consider that if it has no snow or has not recently erupted, it is not a real mountain, you live in Oregon.

    If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Central,Southern or Eastern Oregon.

    Bend there, done that. Also 75 on black ice in the pickup camper.

    I can relate to most of them, except the coffee ones. I was hooked on caffeine once with soda and don't want to do it again with expensive coffees.
    The different name are the easy ones. The many many tribes of Indians accross the state have some very hard names.
