Grease converting company in Corvallis, Oregon

I'm not up on what you guys are concocting over here on the greasy branch of the
forum, but one of my Kinetic Racing partners sent me this link to a story about a
grease converting company in Corvallis, Oregon. They make high-quality-high-dollar
stuff, but the story is well enough written that you'll enjoy just reading it.

Pfffft....kits......

I wouldn't mind seeing their place though, mostly because Corvallis (and the rest of Oregon) really is pretty. If it weren't for the fact that I'm just too darned used to being within 5 miles of a lake at any given time I might consider moving there from Minnesota.

I used to know Nate when I lived in Corvallis. He was a great help when I converted a mercedes myself. So you don't need to buy a kit if that's not what you want. He has the componants there to cobble your own system together, and he knows what he's talking about.

I love Oregon! Who needs lakes when you have rivers and ocean? anyway it rains enough to make you feel like you were swimming in a lake. lol. Sorry I know it was an off topic responce but I had too anyway.

But in Oregon I couldn't enjoy a dumping of 8 inches of snow on April 3rd or ice one the lakes that's still plenty thick enough to walk or drive a sled on.

I stand corrected. We ended up with 12 inches.

In some areas of Oregon. They still have tons of snow. Like the awesome mountains they have. And who in their right mind would really want to walk or dive on a lake. I like solid ground or wet water

Though I will say I love Minn. too.. The lake are cool up there you just wont catch me walking on the ice...

Why walk when you can drive? 36+ inches of ice scares ya? Snowmobiles do just fine on open water...not that I would know
