27 VWs met at 9am at the scenic location of Ediz Hook. It was pretty cold, I had two jackets and a hat. We were very close to the ferry that takes you to Victoria.

We were late arriving in Astoria and we missed our dinner reservations so we chose a local brewery that served good food. We sat down and made friends with some great people from Arizona and Joshua Tree. We followed our Joshua Tree buddies to the local KOA where we were threatened with 65.00 campsites. We managed to avoid the crazy fees and share a site. We convinced the host that three dogs was not one too many because one dog was a service dog for the less competent dog. We got to the KOA around 9pm and got ready for the next day. So far the bus is running great! We have had several people ask us abt our big engine and how it climbs the hills so well... its always fun to tell them its stock.
