    It is about 56 miles to McDermiitt, NV from Burns Junction, OR, or about an hour drive, with good traffic conditions and no stops that is.

    We raised 4 sons and ther favorite vacations were on the Oregon Coast! There favorite beaches were Cannon Beach with the tide pools at hay stack rock and Florence beach sand dune buggie rides. Take the 5 passenger dunebuggie ride! You have a driver and they are always entertaining and the ride is incredible! Seaside was the best beach because it is a gentle slooping beach and had a lot of sand dollars wash up on shore. Tillemook Oregon is a great place to visit the Tillemook Cheese factory and watch them make cheese and then get a big two scoop ice cream cone from their dining facility. Tillemook also has a great Air Museum if your boys love airplanes. Have a great time because no matter where you go there is something wonderful to do!

    Sounds like you might be thinking of lots of places up and down the Oregon coast. To hopefully narrow things down, Away.com's newly published article on "The Top 10 Beaches of the Pacific Northwest" (http://away.com/features/top-ten-beaches-pacific-northwest-1.html) includes a section on Neskowin Beach, Oregon. "Few beach communities remain as unspoiled as Neskowin Beach. Families built vacation homes here in the 1920s and '30s, and there has been amazingly little development since," writes Nancy Prichard Bouchard. This might be the place to find that idyllic cottage!

    Lucky you, Troy. Oregon's a beautiful state, with an amazing mix of forests, rivers, coast, and mountains. You can't go wrong with a drive through the Columbia River Gorge Area. Or you could head west toward Astoria and the wild surf at Ecola and Cannon Beach, followed by a scenic cruise down Hwy 101 (mind you, it'll still be quite brisk). Another idea would be to head south toward the outdoors mecca of Bend (hiking, mountain biking, rafting, and some skiing). If you like skiing, Timberline and Mount Hood Meadows Ski Resort are both within easy range of Portland.
