Usually... Lurking, hiding, waiting....

The RPNW meet at Round Table Pizza is coming up real soon though.. [email protected] round table on Capital highway [Can't quite remember the exit number.. but if you're heading south it's a little ways out from downtown on the capital highway exit ^_-]

If you search a little, I think Blake's post has a map to it.

Other than the RPNW meeting.. the Portland area is pretty disjointed.

well anyways I'll start it off =] I'm usually around around the SE 82nd area and I go to PSU. I drive a NA 86 base model (see signature pic). Postponing S5 turbo motor swap until spring/summer... or whenever it gets warm again.

i quit becasue they treat everyone like **** there i was like the 5th most senior employee there most people had only been there for 3 or less months, where id been there for a 1.5years. they wanted us all to work 12 hour shifts everyday and do 20 diffrent jobs but wouldnt pay anyone more then 10$ an hour for it. so most people found higher paying jobs at nike's warehouse. and most of the people from the portland warehouse bailed when they moved to hillsboro.

I quit when they moved to hillsboro. It was really fun near the end of the move because there was nothing to do and we were still required to show up. Weekends were the best. Pallet jack races and drifting FTW. I miss those times, best job ever.

When I first started at pdub I got a ride, but I started driving my rx-7 after about 3 weeks after. I think i started driving it after you left or my schedule was totally different from yours.

im at the beaverton store, u'll see my fb.

yah i figured the warehouse was in pretty bad shape cuz no one was happy about all those idiot kids zeroing parts after lookin for 30 seconds. no joke some guy zeroed a part cuz he couldnt reach it and he couldnt opperate the forklift. yah when i went to the portland anex there were like 3 ppl there it was ridiculous.

lol and when they want you to work those 12 hr. shifts and you do and you get all that overtime they yell at you then right? lol its fricken ridic

Well I've got a couple 87's..
the Super Base [profile pict], and a GXL. [gunmetal]

both down at the moment.. [water seals on the base, rear diffmount/DEQ on the GXL]

I'm down in Tualatin, but I work at the Mac Shop in Lake Oswego [whatever one you might be thinking of you're probably wrong ^_-]

I've been wanting to get out to meets more often but it usually doesn't work out [and it doesn't help that now both FCs are down.. ]

i was at my wits end with the pullers i was the inventory guy that had to look for all the zeroed parts i would get 130+pages of zeroed parts everymorning that i had to go look for and 99% of them where right flipping there where they should of been. it because robert l wont fire pullers for not doing there job. and most of the large parts in area 7 get zeroed becasue people are to lazy to get on a manlift and get them down. almost everyone there was lift certified.

LMAO i was probably one of those 3 ppl that you saw. I was a scanner but I worked as puller when they were short handed. I never zeroed unless I knew it wasn't there. Spent 10 minutes finding every other part lol. I never got overtime pay it was bs or even holiday pay, they said part time doesn't get holiday pay. Oh well doesn't matter I messed around a lot during weekends so it makes it up i guess.
