Camping at Ft. Stevens Park near Astoria. Make your reservation here:

http://www.reserveamerica.com/campin...ex=CampingSpot
I'm organizing an overnight trip cruising around Oregon this summer. The tentative plan is as follows:

Friday 8/14 late afternoon:
I'll fire up the grill at my place and provide some meat products to cook. Bring your own drinks and other favorite cookout items. If there is interest, I live close to Portland International Raceway so later in the evening there is always the option of Late Night Drags.

Saturday & Sunday 8/15-8/16:
We will be driving from Portland through the Coast Range to Astoria, then down 101 with some scenic detours, camping somewhere close to the beach. Sunday continuing South through Tillamook, taking a scenic detour through Pacific City, and the back east towards Salem and going home from there.

I will contact several campgrounds and post up reservation information once I pick one. Obviously you will have to make your own reservations but I'll share all the contact info, prices, etc.

Don't have an opinion yet, haven't had a chance to read your post or look into anything. I just saw a date had been decided and I'm IN! I'll eventually have some time to look into things. Right now, it's sleep, get the 760Ti registered, work on the car, sleep, driiiiiiiiiiiiiive.

The wife and I may be interested will keep in mind. That is a very busy time in our lives though so can not commit.

Cool idea

Sounds good. I'll talk to Luke and see if he's interested in doing it. Maybe his 242 can finally see some action, other than being moved around in his parents' driveway.

Camping at Ft. Stevens Park near Astoria. Make your reservation here:

http://www.reserveamerica.com/campin...ex=CampingSpot

I tried calling the 800 #, can't get a live body. If reservations get full we can cram extra tents into camp sites. I just reserved mine, but I snore loudly so be warned if you plan on sleeping near me.

$28 including a $6 online reservation fee.

Well, where's your reservation so we can plan to stay away? Or rather, so we can try and group ourselves together?

Here's what I have in mind as far as a plan. Friday night BBQ @ my house. Saturday morning meet up in North Plains right off Highway 26 in the Chevron parking lot @ 9:00. By 9:30 we head west. I'll have to contact Michael about meeting up with him and having any shindig in Astoria. There are several stops along the way that we can make. Photo op @ Astoria Column perhaps? Hit the beach in the afternoon for kite flying and whatever else floats your boat. There is a Safeway in Astoria that we can stop at if we want to do dinner cooking @ the campground, probably cheaper than dining out. I'll probably borrow a campstove, if anybody else has one, bring it. Sunday morning head out pretty early down 101 south. The drive that I mapped out will take most of the day when you factor in stops along the way.
