Vacation: Part 8: Hello Oregon: 02/26/07
Over this 3-day weekend we took our first vacation as a family of four. I've been posting photo montages of each place we stopped on my livejournal site but I plan to post a more in depth description of what we did here, one stop per day.
After our long drive through the redwoods and our brief stop for batteries in Crescent City we made into Oregon. We thought about stopping for lunch in Brookings as it was past noon. We didn't see anything that looked good. There were a number of fast food joints but Sean doesn't like burgers and we wanted something more interesting anyway.
We did however need a bathroom break so we stopped at the rest stop near the turn off for the airport on the north side of Brookings.
One thing that has changed since my last trip to Oregon (June 1991) is that the rest stops now offer wireless access for a small fee (a few select government pages are free). If our trip had included more than a couple hours in Oregon we probably would have paid the fee to have roadside access to the internet. It would have been fun to blog from on the road.
