The Oregon coast is about 6 hours from home. Showed my wife and suggested strongly that we head that way next weekend instead of back east for a wedding but all I got was a smack on the shoulder when I said hey, most marriages today end in divorce anyways so lets go camping instead. Gosh, no sense of humor tonight. We are working towards 2 weeks on the Oregon coast in early September.

Hi Barry,

I have been getting 14-17 mpg hooked up and loaded. That is to say, I carry about 8000lb in the van (GVW is 8550) with all of my tools and parts, not to mention the 600 lb.motorcycle that made the trip in the back of the van this time.

In regular running around SW Florida when I'm working (also heavily loaded) I get 20-22 mpg. I have a few friends that run these mostly empty and have been getting 25-26 at 60 mph.

O Boy! Great pictures of one of my favorite places. Time for a bowl of chowdah at the Trillium Cafe!

I have a quick question about your new P3. Can you see the screen from a normal seated position?

Hey Mike,

What wheel?.........the van drives itself......a new feature from Mercedes

But really, I bought a new Casio Exilim V-7 digital that is so small and light, it's easy to one-hand it.

Geat camera, BTW. I was and am very impressed....especially at the price!

I must say that having a real New Englandah in the Hood adds to the mix nicely! I have the P-3 mounted to my lower left side at about knee level, maybe 24" below eye level and have no problems seeing the screen. It does present a slight problem when looking at it thru polarized sunglasses though .

Yeah Ken, Oct. should be a BLAST! Let me know how much fine NW Micro-brew you think we'll need for the Fiesta.

Of course, the fact that I also use a Pressure Pro tire monitor system AND Rdo-On tire sealants in ALL my tires also helps a lot

Lew,
Thanks for the link and tire information. Good selection of wheels, and the prices are reasonable. Pressure Pro tire monitoring system... I never leave home without it.

Lew , great pictures. That's a part of the country that I've never seen, and would love to get out there some time. Your rig looks great and you've done some very nice mods. Would love to see a side shot of your Airstream with the 16" wheels and tires.Oh, and where can we get one of the five-flag brackets?

Looks like the three flag holder I got from Forums Member robandzoe. Great Quality and very fair price.
