$60.88: Waldport/Newport KOA (Waldport, OR)
Another pre-dawn start up California highway 101. No traffic on the road, but keeping an eye out for deer.
Breakfast at a scenic pullout.
Pancakes with fresh cut strawberries from a fruit stand near Escalon, CA.
There is no shortage of scenic pullouts on 101. They’re a little harder to get to heading north, since they’re all on the ocean side.
I stopped into my top-secret coast campground to ask when the “witching hour” is to get a spot tomorrow morning: 9-11am.
In the meantime, I’m at a KOA in Waldport. There are scenic spots with spectacular views.
Mine is not one of them.
I didn’t unhook – aimed out for my 9am date with ocean-view possibilities.
But there is an ice-cream event at 7:30 with $1 scoops. I’ll be there.
But not before I fix my fridge’s broken door bin. This time, on the other side than I super-glued last time. Apparently Airstream expects you to load that big lowest shelf down with marshmallow Peeps and bags of potato chips – not milk and orange juice.
PS: Campground Wi-Fi is a myth. Do not count on it. This is the best you can expect.
