Tillamook Air Museum/Manzanita

Since I could not find a Thread for this proposed Run I started this.

Since April 25-26 is coming up soon for the overnight planning I thought getting this started would be good. Ron, if there is another place for this please move it.

We have stayed here for a week while we were in the area doing something kayak related. They are pet friendly if that is of interest to anyone. It is quiet and very easy walk to the rest of the town of Manzanita. It is relatively clean (way better than the Forks Motel!) and friendly with a quirky proprietor. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sa...d127c27594!4b1

Since this will be the "Off-Season" the prices for all rooms in Manzanita are better than other times of the year.

Since there are a wide range of places to stay, some close to the beach (big beautiful sandy beach) and some in more residential areas; check it out on Google.

So who else is going, besides Ron, Linda and Lee and me? Last chance to see the war planes in that very large, WW2, wooden hangar!

It is a nice time of year to drive across or through the coastal range of mountains.

Got our reservations today. When you speak with the proprietor you will notice he sounds English; he might appreciate the MINI's

What!??! Only 3 MINI's??? The Cheese Factory alone is worth the drive, not to mention that giant wooden hangar and cool old planes.

Would be fun, but the lacrosse season is in full swing, with games on Saturday.

Cool. Stephen (SMOG) and Lee are also from Port Orchard. Starting time and location from there will be posted after we figure it out. You'll be meeting with the folks from the Olympia area in McCleary.

Pleeeaase suggest a place if you know one, otherwise I would be throwing darts at Google Map (well, maybe a suction cup gun darts) to pick a spot. Any place with a parking lot and maybe restroom facilities for those coming from a far distance might be useful.
