You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Welcomed to Roseburg

Roseburg is welcoming me as an entire town, not just a few people. There are a couple signs around town that say “Welcome Justin Sailor” that everyone reads as they drive by. They’ve already heard me on the radio once and are probably going to be sick of hearing about me by the time I leave.
I’m staying with Randy in Roseburg who is a DJ for Best Country 103 here in Roseburg. He lives with his girlfriend Sheena and their roommate Brent. Last night I was welcomed with one of the best dinners of the trip. they prepared some smoked chicken, smoked sausage, and stuffing. Absolutely delicious! It’s very possible that it’s the best chicken I’ve ever had.
This morning I got a great experience. I headed out on a log truck with Randy’s good friend Ted. Ted has been logging for a couple decades. We headed about 45 minutes out of town to the landing area. It was great, but a little scary on those curvy roads with this big semi. I’ve always had a great appreciation with it since my father is a forester. The forest here in Oregon is definitely a lot different than Michigan. He then drove me around showing me a few of the mills in town and I realized how big of an industry logging is here in Oregon.
As for the evening we headed to Nilknarf’s where Sheena works. I was greeted by some of the locals and friends of Randy who have heard my story. Outside their sign read, “Welcome to Roseburg, Justin Sailor.” So I feel quite welcome!

You finally did it, made Dad very envious of your time. I would love to experience some of the western logging. You'll have to share more of this with me.
