camping on the oregon coast

This weekend my friend Grace came to town from LA and we went camping on the Oregon Coast. The plan of actually sleeping in a tent quickly fell through, as I had failed to reserve a camp spot. Apparently, everybody gets out of town on 4th of July weekend. Fortunately, Enterprise Rent-A-Car ran out of miniature compacts and upgraded us to a minivan. Usually, I am not a big fan of minivans but it beats sleeping in a Chevy Aveo.

Anyway, the weekend was great.

– I cut myself on a beer bottle. Twice.
– We found a place to drive on the beach and proved that minivans can swim
– We ended up camping in a parking lot, right next to a campground. Same amenities at no cost.
