Basecamp in Astoria, Oregon

The kids had a 3-day weekend so we took the Basecamp on its first trip. We brought Barley so this was his first trip too. We drove it to Astoria, Oregon.

Lunch at Fort George Brewing:

At our campsite at Fort Stevens National Park:

At Shipwreck Beach:

On the edge of the country:

….where we could drive the Jeep on the beach:

Dinner at Buoy Brewing with a stellar view of the Columbia River and Washington:

A cool glass floor where you can see seals relaxing underneath the brewery:

The Basecamp did really well. I’ve never towed an RV (or anything) before so it took 2-3 hours for me to get comfortable driving with it behind us. It’s a bit cramped when all 5 (+Barley) are inside and using the shower means you turn the entire Basecamp into a changing room, but it’s spacious inside considering it’s so small. We can all sit comfortably around the tables when it’s configured in the U-shaped seating. We can all lay down on the bed and we did that while watching a movie — The Goonies, which was set in Astoria! — on the iPad, which worked great with the Anker Soundcore speaker.
