Westfalia Road Trip Day 15 – Lincoln City OR to Cape Blanco OR

Loved the Historic Anchor Inn!  Such a fun place with nice owners and it even included a real breakfast for the $89 a night rate.  Our server was super nice and even brought in peaches from her tree at home to included in our breakfast.

After breakfast and a lazy start we were on the road to Cape Blano Oregon.  We chose Cape Blanco based on advice from some fellow Westfalia owners on TheSamba.com a website forum dedicated classic Volkswagens.  Since Cape Blanco is a first come first serve campsite we decided to head straight there and try and snag a spot.  We did make a quick stop in Newport Oregon at Rogue brewing, unfortunately there’s nothing exciting to report.

Blah blah blah beautiful scenery blah blah Oregon is amazing.  Since picking up Archer and Connie this was the longest drive day so far, arriving in Cape Blanco in about 5 hours.

We managed to get a good spot across from the entrance to one of the Cape Blanco walking trails.  We set up the Westfalia and got started on dinner.  I think I have mentioned the Primus Firehole  a few times but haven’t mentioned the MSR Flex-4 System cook set, it’s been awesome and saves a lot of room in the VW camper.  We used them both and cooked up some tasty vittles before a camp fire and bed.

Another shameless product plug is the Phil and Ted’s Lobster seat that archer is sitting in (below) attached to a picnic table.  This thing is super solid and fits every table we tried it on not to mention it packs down flat taking up little space in the Westfalia camper van.  It’s a must for traveling parents with a baby or toddler on a road trip.
