HWY 101 from Gold Beach, OR to Coos Bay, OR

Can anyone give me insight about Highway 101 going north from Gold Beach, OR to Coos Bay, OR. My wife is extremely aware of tight roads and cliff-hangers so I thought traveling north on the inside lane would be best...

No problem at all. It's a great road and an easy drive.

great drive should not be a problem for even the most panicky co-pilot .
you don't say when you are planing this trip. if it is in the next couple of months there will be plenty of oregon's " liquid sunshine ".

My DW & I did that drive this summer in a 41' motorhome plus toad. My DW suffers from similar misgivings about narrow roads, etc.

HWY 101 north from Gold Beach to Coos Bay is a beautiful drive. It should be no problem for you and your DW. The biggest challenge is that the scenic turnouts are on the ocean side. You'll have to cross traffic to ejoy those turnouts. Not a big problem; just be patient.

Take care,
Stu

P.S. If you do this between May 1 and Oct 15, you might consider a jet boat ride on the Rogue River. If you're interested, look at Jerry's Rogue Jets http://www.roguejets.com/

We've already made arrangements for June 22, 2012... We're staying for a few days at the Four Seasons RV Park in Gold Beach, OR

I might add be prepared while taking the boat ride is somewhere along the way they spin the boat around and you stand a good chance of getting soaked. If you sit in front chances are greatly increased. When we took our boat ride we were the first boat out in the morning and it was a little cool to begin with....they spun the boat pretty early on our trip so that meant we shivered the whole way ip and back and were basically miserable and couldn't wait to get back. The boat operators are in the back and they don't get wet. There were quite a few older folks in the boat who were freezing and cold in the wind and they kept spinning the boat, I was cold but really felt sorry for them. It wasn't fun or funny to any of us and then they stand around waiting for tips after the ride was over (?) Everyone wanted wring out their clothes then wring their necks !!!

I will definitely keep this in mind when I board the jet boat...

We took it the opposite direction last year, and I was nervous about it too. Beautiful drive, and I didn't have to get a death grip on the arm rests, nor did I have to clap my hand over my mouth to keep from screaming.

Ha ha! i remember the spinning, and we were forwarned, so I had on some Frog Toggs.

When we got picked up at the landing (Four Seasons) we were the last two to get on and the only place was the very front row. It was wonderful, no heads in the way for pictures. I was prepared for that also. I put the camera in a zip lock back so that the lens was the only thing at the opening. I held the camera with the lens pointed down except when taking pictures. Worked great.

For those that can't make it

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
