His time is consumed by his job and working on radios, so I volunteered to write this blog. To be honest, I don't know as much as he does about the antiquated electronic wonders. If Russ shares information, I'll pass it along; otherwise, I'll write about our lives on the homestead. I promise to always try to make it interesting. Today, I'll blog about us.
We live on a 62-acre tree farm in Southern Oregon- the R BAR S. The name--inspired by a package of bacon--incorporated both our first initials. We landed here after dwelling thirty years in the Portland/Vancouver area.
An opportunity presented itself, so we headed south, trading the evergreens for the oaks.
Our acreage is located in deer winter range. We enjoy a wonderment of wildlife including elk, bear, coyotes, cougars, lynx, raccoons, possums, skunks, jack rabbits, bobcats, not-so-loved ground squirrels and, at times OR-7 (the lovesick wolf). The Pacific Flyway lingers above us; a bevy of migratory birds pass by. Resident fowl includes quail, turkey, hummingbirds, acorn woodpeckers, bluebirds, osprey, eagles, and hawks among others.
I like to think I'm a writer--wrote a book--Off the Wall-Dive Tales (which is available at amazon,.com :) and have enjoyed publication of numerous newspaper and magazine articles. The idea for the book blossomed from the twenty years, Russ and I spent traveling the world, scuba diving. We had lots of fun, however after moving to rural Oregon, we found travel too cumbersome. It's much easier to fly out of Portland International than Medford International; we needed to find something else to do. Russ' interest in all things electronic, led us down Antique Radio Lane.
If you're interested in old radios, tours of Russ' Old Radio Museum are available by appointment. Russ enjoys sharing and discussing his treasures. We also have an ever changing variety of radios for sale or trade. We repair and renovate radios- both the electronics and cabinetry. Russ specializes in the renovation of family heirlooms
We'd love to hear from you, We have included a contact form on the website for your convenience. Till next time...
