I would love to be in on that conversation. We are a lucky bunch living among these jewels.

Susan & Dave,
Many thanks for the offer! - perhaps a raincheck?? - we arrived at the coast on Sunday afternoon, safe, but a bit weary of the active driving; both Idaho and Oregon have a plethora of superbly winding roads that rarely straighten out, wonderful for a Ferrari, less so for an Airstream!

We're decompressing for the week along the coast before planning our route back.

Thanks again!

Chris & Carla

Have a great time, you two.

Don't know exactly where you are, but if you get a chance to go to the Tillamook Cheese Factory out there, they have the most delicious ice cream you can imagine...sold by the scoop, cones of your choice.

Yum!


Maggie

Hey Maggie,
We're at Siletz Bay, south portion of what's called Lincoln City (about 3/4 of the way north along the Oregon coast) where my mom had a small cottage that we renovated several years ago for vacation purposes... It's easy to love the Oregon coast!

Tillamook is the most common dairy brand going here, they sell the ice cream, yogurt, and of course cheese everywhere here in Oregon - Tillamook is about 40 miles north of us on Hwy 101

We'll think of you!
Chris & Carla

Beautiful pics, Chris.

I'm starting to have dreams of Wyoming.

Thanks Maggie... Western dreaming plays a part in getting to these places. We're getting to places we've never been, traveling roads never taken in the process; 3000 miles in the past two weeks, and yesterday we drove hwy. 50 thru Nevada's mining districts of Austin, Eureka, and Ely. I thought of Ray numerous times!

Let's continue to think about WY 2016!

Chris

Thanks for the nice comments! - we're home again, settling in, and shaking off the road (3789 miles!). September is a wonderful time to be out exploring, but not being retired, it's always a conflict as we'd otherwise be busily engaged with our business endeavors! I fantasize about being out for a month, and think of the depth of what could be possible if we had all of September or part of October to spend exploring places that we merely passed thru... So many places, so little time!!

We decided that next year we'll likely try and leave September first to spend time in the Northern Rockies... Weather can be dicey this time of year and we missed our beloved Wind Rivers/Teton region because of unsettled conditions, and too broad of a travel itinerary. We're certainly in the learning phase of our Airstream adventures. - I suspect we always will be...

Stay in touch and we will meet up! Sit around a camp fire, cook on the Barbie and toast to old adventures and talk of new ones. I am spending a couple of months next season WY-ID hope our paths cross.

Idaho

Idaho is indeed a beautiful state, flyncloud. We love towing our Airstream there from Santa Barbara, Ca. We also welcome visitors from Idaho to our beautiful state. I must say that the only hostility we have experienced toward us, has been while in Idaho, however. A US citizen does not need a passport to travel to Idaho. I fail to understand how a person in this country can act so possessive about a particular location. At what point have you earned the right to consider Idaho yours? Do you need to have Native American ancestors? Much of Idaho is Federal land. California taxpayers contribute more tax money to Idaho that is collected from Idaho citizens. The same is true of New Yorkers, for that matter. If our California license plates provoke this unpleasantness, we will happily spend our money somewhere else.
