Thanks. I got "stuck" working in Roseburg for about 9 months, but turned out to be a pretty good experience. Spent the summer exploring the area. Growing up in PDX I didn't get to see Southern Oregon much. Lots of really nice places down there, but to many ticks and poison oak though!
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
