PDX wine country box lunch: recs?

you might want to try tripadvisor.com and look for newberg, carlton, and dundee oregon. there are a variety of reviews although i didn't see anything about box lunches. if you are going to stay in portland and then head out to the wine country then i'd recommend elephants deli over in northwest. i think its on NW 21st. they will make you whatever you want. we ordered a Mediterranean basket and it was wonderful. good luck.

Advice on taking a day trip from Eugene

i'm not familiar with the restaurants in eugene, other than the pizza places my son went to when he was at u.o. day, trip eh--west is florence and the coast, east is the mckenzie highway and into the mountains. for me, its to the mountains. summer run off from the snow is way over normal so you should see lots of "water" heading down the valleys. the mckenzie highway is usually one of the last passes to clear over the summer but i'd think its open by now. check ODOT and they have cameras etc to make sure you are safe and informed. if you decide on the coast, my opinion is that the oregon coast doesn't really blow you away until below florence. i'm sure there are a lot of internet sites to show you what to expect. good luck and enjoy our state.

OR Coast/Willamette Valley Next Week

oops forgot. if you are in cannon beach i'd suggest you head a couple miles north there to gearhart to try pacific way bakery and cafe. doesn't sound like much but it is definitely worth the trip and the food/service is better than anything you'll find in cannon beach. yeah, i'm biased :-)

just north of gleneden beach is lincoln city which has lots of places. one of the nicests/pricy is the bay house just on the south end of lincoln city. great wines $$$, great view, and very good food. another place is salishan which is a very well known spa/hotel/golf resort. food there used to be very good but we haven't been there for a couple of years. good luck!
