I’m used to the Jersey shore: tens of thousands of people crammed onto a coastline about the size of a tapeworm (which may be the New Jersey state parasite).


I don’t want to have a similar experience this weekend when I head to the Oregon coast for Labor Day weekend. Stay in town. Better yet, head east. I hear Montana is beautiful this time of year.

Or at the very least, give me ideas of fun stuff to do that doesn’t involve tripping over tourists (you know, people just like me). I hear surfing is fun.
