Evergreen Weekend

img_0154This last weekend we spent in McMinnville, Oregon at the Olde Stone RV Park.  The RV Park is right next to the Evergreen Air and Space Museum.  It’s been about 10 years since we have been to the museum and we were looking for a good “winter” outing so off we went.
The RV Park.  The Olde Stone RV park is a very nice park.  Spacious pads that are just about as level as you can get, I think we had to raise up the passenger side about half an inch.  The spaces are full hook up with cable.  At first they looked pretty close together, but once every one got there and set up, there was more than enough room on all sides. The park is very quiet and clean.  I was very impressed.  There is a swimming pool, but at temps in the upper 30’s and 40’s, it was not on our list of things to do.
We spent the better park of the weekend at the Evergreen museum.  This is one of the best Air and Space museums I have been to.  They have done an outstanding job with the collection.  The Air museum is the home to the Spruce Goose.  I remember when the brought it here, it was a huge event.  The literally built the building around the Spruce Goose.
The collection in the Space building is second only to the Smithsonian.  The collection is fantastic and tells the story of our journey to space.  The high light for me was the Apollo Soyuz exhibit.  It is out of this world (no pun intended).
If you are ever in the Portland area, take the hour drive out to McMinnville and pay a visit to the Evergreen Air and Space Museum.  It is worth the trip.
