Road Trip

Postby Old Fart » Mon Sep 05, 12:46 am

We're heading for Oregon and Washington via Wyoming Montana and Idaho. Yellowstone and Coeur d'Alene are a few stopping points along the way.
We're landlocked here so the plan is to spend as much time as possible on the coastline.

Any recommendations?

Oregon's coastal towns are all quite small and not much in the way of attractions. Tillamook has a huge dairy plant that is always full of tourists and is interesting. North Bend - Coos Bay is a good sized area and is worth spending half a day or so. Gold Beach has jetboats that go up the Rogue River, that is a good time. Brookings is a good sized town near the border with California. Just about every town you will come across on the coast has at least one dispensary now, so plenty of toking options exist. There is no shortage of state parks along the coast, the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Oregon Sand Dunes National Recreational Area, lighthouses, the Sea lion Caves. Lots to pick and choose from. There are huge rocks along the coast, sticking out of the water, that really make the coastline pop. Whatever you choose to do, you'll have a blast.

If you're into Shakespear see if anything is on in Ashland.

Thanks Moe that sounds perfect. Small towns rocky coastlines and legal weed, cant beat it.

Bo, if you're in town I hope to get south to Napa before we turn left to head back home.

Don't know about the coastline, but always wanted to visit Crater Lake.

One of the good things about living in the UK is you're never more than 70 miles from the sea!

Peace, Des.

Crater Lake is a 2 hour drive for us. It is a very beautiful national park. We usually take visitors up for a look see, time permitting, and Bev takes her hiking group up to the area several times a year to do the Boundary Springs trail, which goes to where the Rogue River originates from an underground source.

They never made it to this neck 'o the woods, and to the best of my knowledge, they didn't make it to Napa either. Maybe next time?
