Holiday road trip!

Jun 25, 2011 update on P71's 2006 Mazda Mazda5

For the Memorial Day Weekend holiday we loaded up the Falcon with 2 mountain bikes, a tent, a metal awning, 2 coolers, 2 backpacks of clothes, a ton of food, firewood, a propane grill, toys, camping chairs, and hiking equipment (all inside too, natch) and hit the beach! We went to Cape Disappointment State Park and had a blast! The Falcon was the perfect road trip companion, and even scored 27+ MPG, which was impressive considering the amount of weight and the fact that I had to hustle to pass the logging trucks on the winding 2-lane roads.

By the way, the State Road loop that connects Cape D with Ilwaco has got to be one of the best driving roads, in the world. It is seriously that good.
