Sloth is actually on of the contributors on this forum, but I promised him I wouldn't tell anybody what his screen name is.

YouTube - goonies - baby ruth!

You'll have to guess who he is.

I and my dh lived in Astoria when goonies and short circuit were being filmed. Served a few of the kids at the local pizza place. A good memory. Kindergarten Cop was filmed at my dh elementary school in Astoria and at many of the beautiful places in the area. maybe the Oregon forum would generate more responses?

I don't live in Astoria, but we have close friends who do. The weather is very rainy & blustery. Much more so than the central oregon coast. The economy is very depressed and housing seems higher than what people can generally afford.

That said, they love it when the weather is good and they enjoy trips up & down the coast.
