Subject: Re: "Dip your bike wheels in the Pacific"

Being a native Oregonian, Doug, I must set the record straight. You won't be able to "dip your front wheels in the Pacific at Astoria, OR." Astoria is on the mouth of the Columbia River & there are several miles of river bar before you get to the ocean. But there are numerous little towns on the northern Oregon coast where you can "dip your wheels." Cannon Beach is one of my favorites.

Have a wonderful trip.
