Oregon 2009 - Trip in review - All links and video!

Thanks for sticking with us through the long process of documenting our Oregon trip in Big Blue. It was a fantastic trip in an area of America we had not explored before. Doing the trip in the bus made it even more relaxing.

"Big Blue's Oil Stains - a visual history of Big Blue put against a Google map, has been updated. Below is a summary of the trip:

- Initial report - good to be home!
- Rain in Ashland, Oregon
- Camping almost alone at Emigrant Lake Campground
- Jacksonville and wine country
- Camping on the Rogue River at Almeda Park
- Getting warm in Grants Pass and seeing a huge stash of VW buses
- Barely hitting the Oregon Vortex but hanging out in Downtown Medford
- the relaxing nature of Natural Bridge Campground
- The chilly edge of Crater Lake
- Camping right outside of - and checking out downtown - Bend!
- McKenzie Pass and the wonders of the top of the world
- Hot springs and meeting up with old friends
- Acting like college kids in Eugene
- Camping at Sunset Bay near Coos Bay
- Trying to keep up with PRE near Coos Bay (and seeing Bandon)
- Meeting Brian - a VW collector

We hope to head southwest - Arizona, Nevada - next year and do the same sort of report, so if you have any recommendations, please email them to bigbluevw (at)

Nice. And arrrgggh, you beat me to it! I've been steadily making a map for each of our trips but have yet to "formally" debut this feature on our blog. Great minds think alike, I guess.

Thanks guys.

whc03grady - I had been meaning to do it for a while but for some reason I can't get the code to insert pictures to work correctly when I am using my mac. My new job provided me with a PC so I had a chance to update it in my spare time. When I look at the map I realize that the bus needs to head south next time...
