Seconds on the ice cream at the Factory. Love the mountain huckleberry flavor.

Re: Oregon Beach

I went to very cool public/private air museum in Tillamook a few years back. Is it still there? The curator told me all the planes are owned by one family and they all are ready to fly since the owner just calls up and says we're taking the P51 out today. I cannot remember the name of the place.

Re: Oregon Beach

I think this is the same one. I can't imagine more in Tillamook

We stop there every time we are out west, and buy any of their dairy & jerky products when we get out west & stocking up for camping/SMB'ing….

The part you saw was probably the Erickson collection. This has now split from the Tillamook Air museum. For the better it seems. The museum / air hanger is now part of the Port of Tillamook, so its getting some much needed maintenance. The Erickson fleet has moved to Madras, where it will be safe from the salty air at the coast.

Tillamook Air Museum is still there, http://www.tillamookair.com. Took our grandson there last summer. The museum is in a WWII blimp hanger. It is an amazing structure. The planes are cool too especially the huge cargo plane, Aerospacelines Mini-Guppy, that you can go into. Not all of the planes were there when we were there but we had a great time.

If you have on the east side of the Cascades, and like airplanes, stop in at Erickson Aircraft Collection, http://www.ericksoncollection.com, in Madras Oregon. Have not been to this one.

The other air museum in Oregon is the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in Mcminnville. http://evergreenmuseum.org/the-museum/a ... -exhibits/. Have not been to this one either but hear it is pretty good. The Spruce Goose is on display here.

Re: Oregon Beach

We loved the Tilamook Air Museum. The blimp history was amazing to learn about and the Guppy and Redtail too. We saw the massive Spruce Goose at Evergreen Aviation, very impressive. There is a cool water park associated with the Evergreen Aviation Museum with a 747 on the roof. Kids loved this water park (you jump down from the 747 and slide down to the water park). Erickson Collection looks interesting, would like to visit one day. Thanks.
