    Hi all
    I'm hoping someone can help me out with a parking problem. I need a secure location in Astoria to park my truck and bike trailer for about a week (Aug 1 to 8 )
    Heres the story, I'm driving down to Oregon at the end of the week, bringing some girls to a basketball camp in McMinnville.
    While they're in camp I'm going to spend the week riding the PNW coast. My bud from Vancouver Island is riding down and we're meeting in Astoria Sunday evening August 1. I'm willing to pay a reasonable price but I'm not too confident in leaving the truck & trailer in a motel parking lot. I've never trailered my bikes before so this is a first for me...

    Any suggestions and/or contacts would be appreciated.

    Thanks, John

    I've got a couple of ideas. PM me if you haven't found a solution yet. My house would work, but I'll be gone part of the time you're here. I have other friends who ride that might have more secure storage solutions than an unfenced house, and I know of a commercial location that has plenty of space with employees working 24/7 to keep an eye on it.

    I've spoken to a couple motels & they're not to keen on giving up a parking spot for a week, even with a couple nights stay and a few bucks for the week. In town I'm more concerned about the local deputy ticketing or towing.
    BTW, the wife seen the Annies suggestion & googled it. Boy did I get told where not to park :rant

    I answered your PM.

    I wouldn't park at Annies either. I wouldn't even want to be on that end of town. :scared

    Talked with Judy at North Coast storage this morning. She's going to open the gate for me Sunday evening so solution found. Thanks for the help. If you see a Bumble Bee Valkyrie with AB plates around next week, that'll be me

    Hey Ron, I talked to JohnMc on the phone a couple of nights ago. He's getting a disposable phone for this trip to avoid roaming charges on his Canadian phone. I don't have a number for him yet, but he's supposed to arrive in town tomorrow and stay at the Rivershore Motel. I'm working, but I'm planning on stopping by there to meet him on my way home from work tomorrow (Sunday) night. He's starting his ride Monday morning. His truck and trailer are going to a storage facility during the ride. I don't know if he'll be online before he goes, but you could either meet him at the motel, or I'll give him your number when I meet him.
