First, congrats to our new member, and his purchase, who is now our "neighbor" in Oregon.
When you arrive in Oregon there is much to see and explore. It really depends on your entry point into this lovely state. If you enter from the NE, you will travel the Columbia River Gorge as did Lewis and Clark 1804-06-----incredible drive. Hell's Canyon and "Little Switzerland" are near I-84 in the NE. Multnomah Falls is near Portland on I-84.
Another highlight would be Crater Lake NP in the southern part of the state.
If you choose to drive the entire Oregon Coast you will not be disappointed. The ocean views just north of Florence are among my favorites.
You might consider entering the state from the NE along I-84 and drive to the northern coast of Oregon--Stephen's Point, and start south from Seaside on the NW coast. When you reach Reedsport on the coast you can turn eastward on Rt #38 toward I-5, stay at Seven Feathers in Canyonville--great RV spot--and then access Crater Lake. You are close to I-5 at that point for exit south to Calif or Nev. These are just a few POI --there are many others....
Hope this helps a little....there is much to see here as there is in your neck of the woods....good luck.....Zigi
