- Newport Oregon May 18, 2013
We have had many discussions about where we start this adventure. It gets complicated. First instinct is to travel East as fast as you can, away from everything familiar. But it is still cold in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. AND what is the hurry? Our plan is to stay in Oregon for a few weeks to enjoy “one more trip” to the beach, mountains and the “other side of the mountains,” Eastern Oregon.
Newport is our first stay. We are located just south of Newport at Whalers Rest. After a lesson by the ranger on proper protocols for checking into a Thousand Trails Resort and a strong discussion in the truck cab on how to read the park map, we found the perfect spot. We actually have a snapshot view of the ocean.
