This may be a little long of an explanation, but I think knowing our situation may help the discussion...
I've starting looking into planning a trip for this summer down through Washington and Oregon, to visit the Oregon Caves, and enjoy the Oregon Coast.
We have had a very tough year, as my wife is only now getting back to work after a year off, without income, due to injury. As a result, I haven't had much of a break myself, trying to keep up on all the bills, so we are trying to get a solid vacation, but really need to watch the money aspect.
I'm still a noob on the hammocking aspects, and would only consider myself 'average' at camping, but I'm not afraid to do some 'dispersed' camping'.
We will primarily only be at any site for one or two nights, and will have the car with us.
My wife is even more of a noob than myself, so we may spend a night here or there in a motel, but having a flush toilet and shower once in a while may lower that requirement.
I haven't driven this route as an adult, so I don't know any of the areas south of Seattle. (I haven't been in Oregon for about 25 years)
From what I have been able to read on the Forest Services/BLM/Parks websites, it appears that there are lots of options for sites, but of the 'developed' sites, many appear to lack appropriate tree positioning.
I'm hoping the community has some suggestions for places to Visit (Besides the caves), and Sites/areas to camp at.
Thanks in Advance!
