Just when I’d grown tired of pumping my own gas … Oregon to the rescue.
I’d been looking forward to spending extended time in this Pacific Northwest wonderland for years and today we said goodbye to California and crossed into Oregon – one of my favorite places. Almost instantly my mood improved .. the air smells better, the water tastes better, and thanks to Oregon State Statute 480.330, I have an extended break from pumping my own gas.
Today we drove about 2.5hours to north into Brookings, a small(ish) town just across the CA/OR border and settled in at Alfred A. Loeb State Park, a few miles outside of town.
While always subject to change, our plan for now is to remain in the state through end of July; a rough travel outline is pictured below (clockwise).
