You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

The Oregon Coast

I’m in love with Oregon. The ocean. The cliffs. The forest. The mountains. I may have found a new home. The coast in Oregon is breathtaking. I was truly speechless. I ran up the beach with my arms in the air at Cannon Beach. Though I was really wishing I had someone there with me to make some memories with. It was perfect. The wind was very strong, strong enough to blow over my camera and tripod. Cannon Beach was a slice of Heaven.
The forest in Oregon seems like the rain forrest (even though I’ve never been to the rain forrest). Forest and trees back in Michigan are nothing like the ones in Oregon. It’s still the late end of fall in Oregon where there orange leaves mixed in with the trees covered in green in the thick dark forrest. The rain was getting sickening to drive in, but was perfect along the coast, it felt right, it belonged there, especially with the waves smashing against the cliffs and rocks.
The Oregon coast is the most breathtaking scenery I’ve seen on the trip so far, sorry Black Hills, but with the ocean Oregon takes the cake. I think tomorrow I’ll meet with some contractors and start having my oceanside house built. By the time I’m done with the trip it will be ready to go. I can move in and reflect on the year while overlooking the ocean and writing my book.

I thought you were going to move to Idaho!! You still got 40 states to go. It may be tough picking just one state over the others!!
