Goonies Never Say Die

Astoria, Oregon, the Goonies

 The statement is true..and Goonies don’t forget either. That’s why I set my kiddos down to watch the adventure unfold. They huddled together like little puppies, heads pressed together and blankets firmly grasped while the Goonies sought out the treasure of One-Eye Willie. They squealed when I pretended to be Sloth and were giddy seeing all the rubies and gold. The intrepid soundtrack instantly brought me back to my 7 year-old-self.

They love the movie and I surely don’t want the adventure to end. So we are heading off to Astoria to seek out adventures of our own. There is a Goonie letterbox, AND I just made an on location map, showing some of the Goonie hot spots featured in the movie. That’s right friends, I do like to share so you can download this map right here!

“Don’t you realize? The next time you see sky, it’ll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it’ll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the best of stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what’s right for them. Because it’s their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it’s our time. It’s our time down here.”
