Not our vans, but rentals (www.alohacampers.com). It was too expensive to ship our van to Maui!

Just north of Seaside Oregon. I aired the tires down and was all ready, then, the voice of reason spoke right as another vanagon got towed out Laughing She won that day.
Then we went north to Astoria Oregon. These are from the Astor Column. John Jakob Astor was the founder of Astoria and this column depicts Lewis and Clarks Epic journey out West. We used to sail a race from Portland to Astoria and back years ago and I always used to rent bicycles and ride up the hill to this park.

Really nice pictures.

What kind of tires are you all running? I have summer tires and I would think you would need all terrain?
