    I've heard of it. I don't think I've been there, but I wouldn't be surprised if my dad has, since he fixes chemical analysis equipment for hospitals, crime labs, etc. and does a lot of traveling, usually between North California and Washington, though he's also gone to Alaska on occasion. :)

    Gone to swimming meets there and driven through it a couple of times, but thats really all.

    Been meaning to get down there for the festivals one of these times, have a perfect dress for it.

    Hmmm... the name rings a bell. It's in Southern Oregon near the California border. Not sure if I've been there, or if I've just seen road signs for it. :p

    Wait, you live in Ashland, I got the impression you were just asking about it? bah, maybe its just me ;)

    ummm, Im not sure, I swam for Albany Aquatics for at least 8 years of my life, then the coaches got on my nerves and quit officially 2 years ago, or 3, whatever it is. So if she's been swimming for awhile I might have. ;)

    I've been there twice. and I'm going to be living on campus at SOU for the next 2 years. From what I experience it's a groovy town but probably very expensive to live in.

    I live in Ashland, too. I'm attending SOU.

    I hate that 5% tax on unprepared foods here. :( Why do they have that, anyway?

    Looks like this board is one of the slower ones.

    Man, that Homecoming dance was boring last night. The music was OK, but it was just a standard dance; nothing really fun.

    At least we won the football game.

    College is so fun down here at SOU. I hope that a lot of you will get a chance to at least visit Ashland in the near future.
