Campsite pics from Fathers Day weekend at Fort Stevens state park in OR

Weather was nice, at least as far as Oregon coastal weather is concerned. Went and toured the old coastal defense installations that guarded the mouth of the Columbia river during WWII and before, including the battery that was the duty battery the night the Japanese sub attacked the mainland US during the war.

In full bloom as well were the mosquitoes. Ahh, they were grown to their full size already, a bit larger this year than average it seems. About the size of a house cat. We came home covered in bites. The dogs too. Each time we poked our heads out of the trailer we were dive bombed. All day and eve long unless we coated ourselves in chemicals.

Beats staying home and working though.


The first pic is our truck and trailer, the second is the inlaws, camped next to us.

What's the in-laws A/S? Looks like about a 22', Vintage Sovereignl? The tow vehicle is a hoot! Is it an International? Quite a combo...probably turned a lotta heads! Need to get up to that park sometime to check it out.

It is a 1973 23' Safari. the tow vehicle is a '55 Ford C60. He found it out in a field in the Eugene area, covered in blackberry vines, rusting away.

Hi Van, I almost missed this thread, just ran into it while wandering through the forum Too funny, because when my husband was a boy they went camping at Fort Stevens, and all he remembers was the mosquitos! It took a lot of convincing to get him past that, everytime I said I wanted to get a trailer to go camping he'd tell me about "Fort Stevens and the Mosquitos" again! However, when you're not getting 'et up' it is a pretty cool place to visit.

Great looking rigs, both of you. If I ever run into your inlaws at a park I'll certainly remember their tow vehicle

Nice Truck!

At least he doesn't have to worry about tounge weight! I have been trying to convince my wife we need a "vintage" truck for towing but somehow my '52 1.5 ton Chevy doesn't fill her bill. BTW it is sitting in the woods covered in brambles at the moment.

Van,
Nice looking units

Aaron
