Just a question - do the gas stations around there usually have different prices if you pay credit vs cash?

Yes. I've seen it 20 cents higher if paying by debit or credit card. The price on the signs is usually the "cash" amount. However, not all stations charge more... but you won't know that until you walk in to pay. They're SUPPOSED to advertise on the big sign if it's the CASH price... there again, I've been unpleasantly surprised when I found out otherwise.

I haven't seen any in quite a while except maybe an Arco or two. Be forwarned, many Arco stations don't accept any credit cards.

They do accept debit cards though. You have to get out of your car and pay before filling.

Thanks for the info Donna, Byron & Nancy. Things like that are good to know ahead of time so I don't get sticker shock - not that I don't get it every time I fill up these days, but why make it worse?

Yes, thanks from me also. I'll be hitting Costco to check out what's there that's different from at home.
A note for CDN's - I checked with them and your Canadian membership is valid for store shopping in the US and vice versa.

1 gallon warmish water
1 quart hydrogen peroxide
1 cup dish washing liquid (Old husband tale says it has to be "Dawn" dish washing liquid, but I found that just about any kind works)
We found a product which works well called Skunk Off. Available as lotion or shampoo.

Were you also asking about things to do and see in Bandon? My girls and I passed through the area a couple of years ago. A few things remain in our memory banks including the cheese factory (FANTASTIC garlic white-cheddar cheese - sounds disgusting but tastes grand), beaches (of course) and, though this goes against our usual grain, a "wild animal park" south of Bandon down Highway 1. You can't miss it. The best part about this petting zoo (lots of goats) was the baby animal feeding. The girls (then 5 and nearly 3) and I fed (and petted) a baby bear, mountain lion kittens and a tiger cub.

My memory of the state park: nice grassy spots with hedges separating nearby neighbors stacked like cordwood. Wouldn't have been so bad if the neighbors in their tent trailer hadn't forgotten that only canvas was keeping their TV from blaring into camp. Er...canvas doesn't have much of a muffling effect. ("Alien vs. Predator" - not exactly family fare, even simply audio.) (sigh)

The last time we were at Bandon (2006) the cheese factory was closed. We heard the Tillamook company bought it and then closed it. There still is a lot to do and see in the area.
