Day 1 - The Oregon Coast

420 miles (0 offroad), 11.5 hours. Camped at Nesika Beach RV park, OR (**).

On the first day we travelled from San Francisco to Gold Beach, OR on Rt 101, which offers spectacular coastal views.

It was stinking hot - a taste of what was to come. We both donned nylon evaporative cooling vests, which, if soaked with water, give about an hour of effective cooling. Ahhh.

Last minute packing before the departure.
