    Canby 2019 can't wait

    I was kind of stunned when Steven told me Monday. Over the years I have offered to help out wherever needed. when I heard Steven was stepping down, I offered again. at that time, he thought they had someone. I have attended most ,if not all of the 13 years of the Canby show. my family and I have always looked forward to it, & I will keep some hope that the members of Datsuns NW will regroup at some point and restart the Canby show. until that happens... While no show can really REPLACE the Canby show,(or any of the other,longtime running events) We will be making some changes to the Silver Falls show, in an attempt to fill the void left by the Canby show not happening. We will be making it a weekend,camping available event, in June, with some of the activities we all enjoyed at the Canby show, & some new ones also. I will make an official announcement when we have a few more details nailed down. we should have more information at the Wilsonville Sonic meet on January 12th. I need to make reservations at Silver Falls State Park, & they don't do that until after the first of the year.

    GOONS check in

    been doing a bunch of work on my '70 Goon. It has been sitting for a year or so, due to it needing a bunch of front suspension work,among other things. my 521 had taken all my time and money. I will update my thread on the wagon soon, but here's a picture for now. reassembly is still underway.

    RIP Dave aka Pumpkin210

    Dave was a great guy! He had my back a few years ago, when i was going through a very tough time in my life. He always had something supportive to say & it was a big help to me at that time. Dave contacted me once ab a set of wheels. I hated the ones i had on my Goon, & he had a thing for them. He must've already had several sets, but wanted to trade me a set of Iron Cross wheels, just because he knew i didn't like the ones i had. He worked things out, so that someone picked them up at his place,& brought them to me at Blue Lake. I have heard MANY stories of him doing similar things for other people. He was just that kind of guy. I have been looking for a picture of my son with the Birdshit Goon. My kids were super impressed with it. Dave was a Fantastic person, with a larger than life personality. He will be Greatly missed!

    All things considered, & knowing how hard the Impact FELT, I am amazed how well my truck held up. I don't know that I will ever feel quite as safe about another vehicle, as I do about 521's at this point. My Truck took one hell of an Impact at both ends, & I was able to walk away.

    Thank you Ted ! I actually feel like we have settled our differences awhile ago. Even then, I felt like we had an "agree to disagree " thing going. Pretty much feel the same way with Jrock. He sent me a message, making sure I was ok also. That seems to be part of the thing with this community, even people who have disagreements, still care about each other.

    So, here's what happened. I was on my way to work. About 8:45 am I was sitting at a stop light, at the end of the offramp from I-5 at Wilsonville rd. I had been waiting a few minutes, & expected the light to change any second. I have a very slight memory of seeing the front of the Jeep & hearing yelling about the same time ar the Impact. Witnesses said they heard her yelling "Oh No!" ,& that she was traveling at around 65mph when she passed them. The Impact pushed me into the Nissan Frontier that was in line in front of me at the light. I was spun sideways, & the front end stopped underneath the gravel truck that had been in the lane next to me. Lucky it wasn't moving at the time! The Impact launched the Jeep, spun it around & she took out a signpost, as she landed. She was obviously in alot of pain, but I didn't see any blood on her, or the driver of the Frontier that I got pushed into. I could tell my tooth was broken right away, other than that adrenaline kicked in pretty fast. Once I saw both other drivers were alive, I turned my attention to what was left of my truck. I feel like a part of me Died with my truck yesterday!

    Thank you for your concern everyone! I am going to be ok. I am sore AF, & I spent all day at the dentist today, having the front tooth that got broken in the accident fixed. I am waiting for the police report, which will hopefully have the other 2 driver's insurance information. Both the other drivers left the scene in ambulances. The lady who was driving the Jeep that rear ended me had to be removed from the Jeep on a backboard. I didn't have a chance to talk to her,because of the firemen& Paramedics. The printout the police officer gave me at the scene doesn't have any insurance info, or phone numbers for the other drivers. My insurance will cover my medical expenses, and if the Jeep Lady doesn't have insurance, I had coverage for that. I doubt my truck is savable at this point, but I am going to try to save as many parts as possible, & build a new truck. In the meantime, I will focus on getting my 510 wagon back on the road.
