Any Eugene, OR, area FAL-ers?

Hi All-

Wondering if there are any good FAL-er folks down Eugene OR, way.
Know of a guy who may be interested in a meet-n-greet, trade/sale kind of thing eventually...told him about the Files a while ago, guess he's been reading/learning/lurking recently. Showed him some pics of some STG-58's and a HB Izzy, and that brought on some grins. Might have a new FALaholic soon

Anyhoo....just curious. Thanks for your time, have a good week.

I'm currently on the coast just to the west of Eugene in Florence. I know there are several in the Eugene area and I'm sure they will chime in.

I'm originally from Eugene. Live in Beaverton now. There are a couple of Eugene residents here. Check out the Oregon section to meet everyone.

Spent 10 years of my adult life in Eugene and used to broadcast on KLCC 89.7 FM out at Lane Community College.
I recall the first time I visited Saturday Market, downtown...
Was like walking into the Summer of Love - it was all Patchouli, tie dye, incense and peppermints.
Holy Moses - a real awakening for a Midwestern boy on his own!

I was into gold mining, vintage guitars, guns, motorcycles, girls, coffee and audio engineering.
The place took some getting used to, I tells ya.

I mainly miss the geography of Orygun.

Now it's Patchouli, tie dye, pot smoke and body odor.....I went once as we were scouting outlets for our home business...I am unlikely to return....

I'm temporarily residing in Tillamook babysitting grandkids while mom and dad are off to Boston for a conference.

It's kinda wet. I'm from New Mexico.
