Hi Gina, you mentioned that you plan on camping in Crescent City on your drive north. You might want to consider Harris Beach State Park in Brookings if it isn't full (about 4 hours drive from Leggett) or Whaleshead Resort ( http://www.whalesheadresort.com/rv-park.html ) which is just 10 minutes or so further north. Both are on stunning sections of the coastline. Whaleshead charges $22 for a full hookup and cable is available for another $1.50.

By the way, you might want to slow down while you drive through the Pistol River area north of Brookings. I think it has great potential for a nice photo of your Burro!

Jeanne

Another idea... on your trip home you may want to camp at Cape Lookout State Park, located southwest of Tillamook. The park is incredibly beautiful, and the Three Capes drive from Tillamook to Pacific City is a nice alternative to Hwy 101.

Boy! That Whaleshead Resort sure looks nice!

I will definately check it on the way back! I have one extra day to play with then, I might stay two!

25 bucks for that? I can't even say "RV" park for that down here (35-40 bones average)

Bring some heat with you. We're getting tired of these low temps in the low 20s and teens.

carefully, please.

Hit the road, Gina. Or are you waiting for it to warm up a bit? It's 27 & an arf here. If you are waiting --- have a cuppa, say howdy to the dogs for us and try that heater one more time.
Maybe you've shut the 'puter down and won't see the replies 'til tomorrow anyway.

Welcome to Oregon.
Oh! you haven't left yet. Your weather report sounds just like here.

Maybe it'll turn to just plain old Oregon rain by the time you get here

I am drowning!

Made it to Lodi last nite to the darkest road on earth. Hiway 12. Missed the KOA twice.

It was raining so hard I just tossed all on the trailer floor in the truck, filled a gallon jug and plugged in. Had sammich for dinner.

I am in garberville now. Where I had ressies in legget lost power. I told her I really didn't need itn but she told me of a park up the road, and here I am. Along with laods of buldgies that didn't want to drive in the pretty horrible rain. Visibility was difficult and there where downed power lines on the 101.

My site here is a swamp, even tho I am in an upper one. After I pulled in, it dumpeda couple inches in Half an hour or so. Pretty nasty!

Still pretty country tho, wet or not.

Gina,
You've probably got more experience driving in that soup than most of us. Praying for safe travel and that your scheduled visits work out.

Last night the temperature on the south coast of Oregon shot up to 58 degrees, so hopefully you won't have any icy roads to contend with today, but our forecast also calls for more rain and winds up to 60 mph. Drive safe!!!

Jeanne

P.S. Do you have good raingear already? If not, there's quite a good mountaineering store just off Hwy 101 in Eureka called Northern Mountain Supply. Plus, they're dog-friendly!
