Tillamook Air Museum - Naval Air Station Tillamook - The incredible Hanger B


Naval Air Station Tillamook; Hanger B - Our National Treasure

Tillamook is home to the largest free-standing, clear-span wooden structure in the world. It covers more than seven acres. 

This historic building is 1,072 feet long, 296 feet wide, and towers more than 15 stories high.

Commissioned and built by the U.S. Navy in 1943, it was constructed to house blimps for anti-submarine convoy escorts and patrols. Originally, 2 structures were built; Hanger A & Hanger B. Hanger B is the only structure remaining due to a fire in 1992. Built in just 27 days, the hangers could house eight K-class blimps!

The purpose of Naval Air Station, Tillamook was to watch over ports in Oregon and Washington and shipping lanes from California to the San Juan Islands. The LTAs (lighter than air) ships could stay aloft 48 hours, cruise at 50-67 knots and cover 13,000 square miles in a single day shift.

Currently, Hanger B houses the Tillamook Air Museum which is a private collection of vintage aircraft. A must see when in Tillamook!

Built entirely out of wood due to the limited supply of metal during World War II, it's currently considered the largest wooden structure in the world.

The Oakridge Boys Perform August 7, 2014 at the Tillamook County Fair

Hang on, Elvira's Coming to Tillamook! - Oom Poppa Mow Mow

The Oakridge Boys will be the featured act on Thursday, August 7th,2014 at the Tillamook County Fair.
The Tillamook County Fair is a great family event and every concert is included with the price of admission to the fair. That makes it a great bargain. 

 

Tillamook County Fair 2014

 

LOS ANGELES, Ca. (January 24, 2014) – With a legacy that stretches across 6 decades, encompasses more than 41 million albums sold, and includes numerous iconic hit singles such as “Elvira,” “American Made,” and “Y’all Come Back Saloon,” it’s no wonder that The Oak Ridge Boys are one of the most popular live acts on the circuit today, packing fans in by the thousands and tens of thousands wherever they perform. What is surprising is that the Boys, renowned for their great live shows, have never released a full length, official hits concert album - that is, until now! Cleopatra Records will release Boys Night Out on April 15th, in three formats - CD, vinyl, and digital download - finally giving ORB fans the experience of the group’s well-polished live performance for them to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

 

Come and enjoy them live at the Tillamook County Fair, only 20 minutes from Sandlake Country Inn.

Chocolate Cobbler Recipe from Sandlake Country Inn

http://www.sandlakecountryinn.com
Chocolate Cobbler

Sandlake Country Inn's Chocolate Cobbler

I know, I know...it sounds strange, doesn't it? It even LOOKS strange! But my, oh my, is it delicious! 

This is one of my most requested recipes at Sandlake Country Inn. At breakfast, we deliver a 4 course hot breakfast to your door each morning of your stay. Breakfast changes every day. I use this chocolate cobbler as our fruit dish. I know we'd love to think chocolate is a fruit, but for those who disagree, you'll be happy to know that I serve this with berries on top and a tiny bit of whipped cream. Now that's a fruit course in my dictionary!

Every time I make it, guests ask if I'll give up the secret recipe. Well, here it is:


CHOCOLATE COBBLER AT SANDLAKE COUNTRY INN
2 sticks butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups boiling water

Preheat oven to 350. In a 9x13 glass baking dish, melt the two sticks of butter in the oven. 


Meanwhile in a bowl, mix together the 1 1/4 cups of sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla and milk. Once the butter is melted pour the batter over the butter, but do not stir. 

In a separate bowl mix together the cocoa and remaining sugar. 

Sprinkle cocoa/sugar mixture on top of batter. Do not stir. 

Pour the 2 cups of boiling water on top of that (don't stir)  

bake for 30-45 minutes. I bake mine until I have a nice golden brown crust and inside is pudding-like. In my oven this usually take about 35 minutes. 

Serve warm with sliced strawberries & a dollop of cream. 

Now imagine this is only 1 of 4 courses you could be eating while in your romantic room at Sandlake Country Inn.
