We departed the Armstrong home at 9:30 a.m. we knew we had a long drive to Seaside, OR. It was 190 miles, essentially backtracking part of our recent trek from the Washington coast then across the Columbia River to Astoria then a short drive to Seaside. This was just a one nighter to lessen our drive. The next day another 70 miles through Tillamook to the Oregon coastal town of Pacific City and another Thousand Trails preserve. We'll be here till September 8th, meeting up with Dave's brother Frank and his wife, Sharon. They'll spend a week in a "Get-a-way" cabin in the same TT Pacific City preserve. We call it a mini-reunion and will be a lot of fun.
