Also, Oregon doesnt have self serve gas, they have people that do it for you. Which is ok until you're at a gas station trying to pay with an australian card and they require you to put a 5 digit zip code in. then the gas attendants get confused and you have to go in to pay which would have been the first thing we'd have done if it was self serve. So its kinda dumb.
We drove to Portland today and it was cold and windy and threatening to rain. We probably went to the wrong side of portland because it wasnt as nice as everyone says it is, although we're kind of over cities now. We just want to hit the coast and relax in the sleepy little towns, so that probably turned us off Portland a bit, which is a shame
We had eaten dinner at Cannon Beach. We went to the little restuarant near the visitors centre which Jo had suggested to us, but we didnt get the salmon which she said is awesome, but the fish and chips and clam chowder was great!
We went to bed and it was nice until it rained. The ultimate test of waterproofing...it was good, until it got heavy, and even then it was still not bad...just a little leaking at the seams...no more than what we get from condensation really. Tom doesnt exactly fit in the tent though, his head and feet touch the ends so he got a bit wet. hmm
