But I will not be behind the wheel.
We continued north on 101. It is a super scenic drive, but a bit twisty for our massive beast. We did quite a bit of "porpoising" as well. Never fun. But we were rewarded with this fabulous campsite at the Lewis & Clark Golf & RV Park in Astoria, Oregon.Astoria is at the very top left corner of Oregon. The Mighty Columbia empties into the Pacific here, and across the river is The Great State of Washington. Lewis & Clark wintered here after crossing the continent. There is a lot of history in this area and Astoria is a very pretty town, with great food, museums, trails and beaches.
We will be here for several days, so check back - and don't forget to enter our contest (below).
Until my next update, I remain, your cheesy correspondent.
