Sounds like fun. I can't wait to get back to the Oregon coast this summer with my TC and my kids. Does your truck have the 454 engine? I know what you mean about looking forward to cheap gas if it does. My 1997 GMC had a 454 and it cost over $900 just in fuel from east Idaho to the southern Oregon coast, into the Redwoods and back to Idaho. I upgraded to a diesel and nearly doubled my mileage. Hope the prices stay low, but we all know that's just wishful thinking. Have fun!

We like Fort Stevens. Go to Astoria and climb the Astoria Column. Go shopping at the Safeway in Astoria and then cook your lunch in the parking lot next to the river and enjoy the view. Bring your mountain bikes to ride through through Fort Stevens' many trails and be sure to go to the park museum and gun batteries.

Don't forget to ride the antique electric street car in Astoria as well, you'll learn some of Astoria's history.

You forgot to mention the wonderful Fish and Chips stands across from the "Great" Maritime Museum!

Be sure to visit Buoy Nine restaurant. About a mile from the Ft. Stevens campground entrance, and less than a quarter mile from the historic fort entrance. "Torpedo Prawns" and clam chowder thick enough to hold your spoon up. YUMM!!

If you like cheese than you may want to go a little farther south and stop at the Tillamook processing facility in Oregon,you will not be dissapointed
