Hello, my name is Robert Haines and I currently live in Salem, Oregon, USA.

I also own Haines Engineering Consultants, LLC and that link will take you to my main web site.

Although I have many interests, with my wife and kids at the top of that list, I have documented my favorite projects on these pages. I have done so in an effort to help those passionate about the same things and are willing to take on the same challenges.
