Escape pod to the Oregon Coast
In our continued attempt to avoid the worst of Kansas City’s weather, Kyle and I spent August escaping to the Pacific NorthWest, and what a good long trip like that requires is an escape pod, and preferably a vintage one. During our months of research on older travel trailers, we discovered that Idaho has an unusual abundance of campers. So at the beginning of the month we started our trip by showing in Sun Valley (where I won Best of Photography), and from there we launched our search. After some hunting in Boise we bought this beauty that would be our home for the next month – a 1971 Timberline that was built in Sandy, Oregon by the Kipers family.
After picking it up, we headed to Oakridge Oregon to see our friends Ben Beamer, Laura Robson, and Jill Silvey, and found ourselves right in the middle of Mountain Bike Oregon. We jumped in on mess hall duty, helping our friends feed the 500 hungry bike riders, and prepped our new trailer for its upcoming coastal adventure.
Carl G Washburne State Park
With all of the options we magically choose the most beautiful park in the mid-coast of Oregon where we had a week of exploration. We are both in love with our new portable home, travel trailer camping, and the Oregon Coast. We are looking forward to next summer’s adventure!
We are looking for more camping ideas for next year (both near and far). What is your favorite camping spot?
