I know this is an older thread, but I saw that photo of the Peter Iredale and thought how nice your Jeep looks next to it. I didn't realize you can legally drive down onto the beach, there. Hope you didn't run over any sand dollars. That's where I go when I need to refresh my stash of them (for art projects) .It was sunny and nice enough I had to go play on the beach. Took the beach from Fort Stevens State Park to Gerhardt here in Oregon.
That "rusted up crap" is the wreck of the Peter Iredale, and it has been there since 1906.SeaRat....nice pic, but what is that rusted up crap behind you in the pic? ....and, why doesn't the state / county remove it?
