Day Trip to Evergreen Air Museum

A quick trip on a beautiful Saturday to the Evergreen Air Museum in McMinnville Oregon.  It's about an hour drive from my home.  This museum is most famous for housing the giant WWII Howard Hughes "Spruce Goose".  I assure you, it is huge. 

Also a picture of the author on Atari Day with an Atari shirt, relaxing in an old airline seat, a delicious lunch at a place that serves sandwiches on fresh-made bread, a sweet late 60's Ford Falcon I spotted in a parking lot, and our current sweet ride too, which looked nice in the sun.

I haven't been there in at least 20 years, but my favorite at the time was the Northrop T-38 Talon.  Up close and personal it's a lot smaller than one would think.  On the way back there was a brewpub in another town (I cannot remember the name of the pub or city) that made the best tasting dark beer I ever had in my life.  Maybe for vacation next year I'll consider going back as I have a better camera now.

If you go, make sure to also go to the "Space" building, which is part of the same complex and included in admission.  Since it's a separate building, a lot of people skip it.  The space stuff is neat, but it also has a really good collection of helicopters.
