I was born and raised west of Portland, so I'm quite used to the rain. We became fulltime RV'ers this past July. We spent August at Devil's Lake State Park in Lincoln City, and we considered that the best August we've ever had - mild temperatures and not a drop of rain that month (that I can remember?). From there, we spent September and October in the far NE corner of Oregon, at Wallowa Lake State Park. While it was one of the most beautiful areas we've ever spent time at, we were going through lots of lotion and chapstick trying to replace our missing moisture. I swore I would never complain about the rain again. Since the last week of October, we've been sitting in McMinnville, Oregon due to current necessities. The rain started, and only recently has given us a few dryer days. I've kept my word and not complained.... but even Native Oregonians have their limits! Got to love all the green trees and lawns (and moss) though!

In October 2010, we did a trip down I-5 to Eugene, across to Bandon and Cape Blanco then up the coast, with stops in Florence and Lincoln City. The afternoon we got to Florence, it was 75 degrees, with sunny blue skies.

The next morning it was 45F, blowing 35 knots and pouring down rain. We stopped off at Sea Lion Caves (don't bother) then on to Lincoln City. While at the LC KOA, we got the weather forecast on Portland Channel 8, indicating that the crummy weather was settled in for several days.

We headed home PDQ (as much as possible in an RV) via Highway 18 and 99 to I-5, with a stop at Millersylvania SP.

As you're now a full-timer, Larry, head south. The weather will improve substantially as you get further down the coast. San Diego is really pleasant this time of year.
