Oregon's Bay Area centers on the city of Coos Bay, situated on the shores of the estuary of the same name that stretches for nearly 12 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. While staying right at the Charleston Marina RV Park, less than a mile from the mouth of the bay, in this week's Grand Adventure we check out the cities of Coos Bay and Bandon, glimpse at Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, explore the five coastal Oregon State Parks including hiking at Shore Acres and the Coquille River lighthouse at Bullards Beach, learn at the Coos History Museum and Charleston Marine Life Center, and go kayaking at the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve.

Welcome to Grand Adventure, a YouTube channel that focuses on RV-centric outdoor activities including not only of course camping, but also mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, skiing and more, always filmed in stunning 4K.
We're based in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter months, and invite you to come along as we travel all around the U.S. My wife Patricia and I, and dog Zoe are avid boondockers, so while you'll occasionally find us in RV parks or even dry campgrounds, we're usually camped in some of the most remote and beautiful spots that you could ever pull a travel trailer into. We've now transitioned from "long-timing" for six months a year, to living and traveling in our RV full-time.
We'll provide beautiful travel videos, as well as some tips and insight on trip planning, and equipping and maintaining your RV to make your next adventure a grand one indeed! So, subscribe to make sure that you catch every episode, and remember...life is nothing but a Grand Adventure!
