Although we are trying to live a small life in a smallspace on a large island, sometimes it is nice to get off the rock, take a boat to a new country and hit the open road.
Oregon calls. Vast, windswept, foggy beaches. Craggy, giant, haystack rocks. "Cheap beer and fireworks" American Charm. All things to like.
