Since we're both retired and our children are all grown and out of the home, we don't use the RV on national holidays. We just got back from a 14-day trip down the Oregon coast, from Astoria to Brookings, then to Crescent City, across the coast range on highway 199 to Grants Pass, then a leisurely run back home.
Unfortunately, the weather on the coast wasn't very nice - misty mornings with no sunshine until mid-afternoon and quite cold overnight. When we tried to go south of Crescent City to the Redwoods, we got into fog so thick, it reminded me of back in the UK. Our defintions back then were that thick fog meant you couldn't see the front of a Mini from the back, dense fog meant you couln't see the end of a Mini's hood from the driving seat. Many times, I drove my old Austin Seven the 23 miles home from college following one of my car-pooling friends who was walking along, shining a flashlight back at me.
We gave up on the Redwoods and headed back to Crescent City and then onto 199. We found some very good CGs and some marginal ones. I'll post our reeviews in the appropriate place.
