Oregon Coast

Thinking of driving down the Oregon coast for a couple of weeks from BC, anyone been that way and recommend areas for sandy beaches and exciting things to see?

Thanks

Lucky you, went there in 2000, camped with John's brother and family loved crater lake though not on the coast. Can't remember where we camped either, just the great beaches and views.

the camp site was wonderful, 2 cars 3 tents, 1 pitch, own fire pit and you could use the wood from the forests nearby, provided it was already on the ground. Quite a few travelled with chain saws
Have a fantastic time.

Even if it is already on the ground it often needs cutting up before you can use it

Even my woodburner can only take 18" logs.

Beautiful coastline if you can see it, done it last year from Seattle to San Fransisco, if you stick to the coast road it's covered in seamist, go inland 1 mile and it's clear.
look here, theworldisourgarden.com and select September 2011 also look at the photos titled Oregan

Yes would agree with this but you may not be able to go around it at this time of the year. They have very heavy snow fall there, we went in July and it had only just been opened.

We will spend a lot of next Winter in BC but would make the trip around August or early September when hopefully the weather would be reasonably good. All useful info thankyou.

If you have the time and inclination Groundhog, read our RV travels on my website below.
We did Route One down the west coast from San Fran nearly to LA but veered off just past Hearst Castle.

Route One has recommended signs of 34ft. max. But we managed in a 40ft. with Jeep on the back.

We visited Crater Lake in late April and the road up to it was ploughed through snow over 10' deep. There was only a few hundred yards of the rim drive open, but the view of the lake and Wizard island surrounded by snow covered trees was amazing - it really is worth seeing it in winter.
I saw the Grand Canyon on the same trip and personally rate Crater Lake way better, as you can take in the whole thing.
Stop at the info board on the road up that shows the present view with the height of the volcano that erupted to create the present caldera superimposed on it - Mt Everest is a mere pimple in comparison.
Apparently it is as if the Island of Hawaii was plonked on top of North America instead of on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.
