      We drove it a little spirited and we had enough time to maneuver around the dips in the road. Also we only ran across 3 or 4 cars the whole length of 53. I'm not sure if that's normal or not. I really appreciate you going the extra mile in scouting out the area as well.

      Agreed.

      White, red, black...in that order.
      Unless it's non metallic black. That trumps all in my book

      No problem!!!
      And yes, it's a rare sight to see another car on there.

      I just drove that route to Cannon Beach 4 days ago and will attest that it has several sketchy dips including a section with the road torn up down to gravel (what?!). I'm lowered nearly 2" with H&R Sport springs. I can't imagine being any lower for this strech of back-hwy; proceed with caution.

      Typically I leave that up to everyone to decide. I've seen hotel room parties get way out of hand so I don't want our "group" to be unwelcome because someone thrashed their room. But if you decide on somewhere to stay let us know.

      The only thing I see is the main page info referring to last year's cruise. The 3 areas you can click on to get info are all current and correct.

      Just trying to experiment. With no mid point I figured more time to meet and greet before the cruise could be a good thing.
