Update from Doug in Oregon
« on: April 13, 2009, 03:18:30 PM »
Good news on the job front fellow bus nuts.  I got a very good job in Omaha as a Senior Network Engineer leading a team that is building Gavilon a new computer infrastructure.  Gavilon is the trading arm of ConAgra Foods and operates independently now (sold by ConAgra).  They want me there on the 27th of April.  Things move very quick when God opens doors!  Anyway, wanted to let all of my brothers and sisters here know about the good news.  We have to leave Oregon in one week!  Over the next week we have to sell literally everything to finance the move and find a house in Omaha(the one we thought we had fell through we just found out).   Once we get moved and settled, and our finances get back online, I will once again begin the process to figure out how to get the old girl fixed.  Thank you all for your support and prayers during this trying time for the Ferguson Family.  Keep praying for us.  This is a HUGE move for us and one we are naturally a little anxious about.  I won't be on the forum much over the next month or so, so if you want to contact me, just email or call.

God Bless,

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

Congrats Doug. Omaha is a nice area to live and you'll soon get introduced to the frenzy of Husker football!!! There are a lot of outlying communities such as Elkhorn, Gretna and such plus across the Missouri River and the Iowa side in which to look for homes. Later

    I know there is at least 1 busnut in Omaha.  Fella named Mike Lester. He recently purchased an MC-7 (Full Gallop) that had belonged to a friend of mine that had passed on.  Jack
