EVAN HANDED DOWN A SIGN WITH THIS SLOGAN ON IT, INTO THE HANDS TO THE DDC: “Keep Oregon Green” and today we finally brought it into the shop to discuss how old the thing might be. Looks like about 50 years old. Wow. Well, we didn’t take a picture of the sign, due to a general uneasy atmosphere of being “fucking busy as hell” hanging low over the DDC factory floor. But don’t fret, we found something pretty good, as we never aim to disappoint. Click here for some green, green Oregon. And feel good about it, you shits.
