Driving into Tillamook I went by the high school, which has "Home of the Cheesemakers" proudly written over one of the entrances. It struck me that I could use a t-shirt or a hat with "Tillamook Cheesemakers" on it. I had to stop for gas anyway, so while I was downtown I went to every store that might sell school t-shirts.
I went into a consignment store, thinking it was a small town department store, and the very nice woman in there searched every rack of clothing for me -even the little kids racks and the very large adult racks. She pointed me to the local screen printer but he was closed for the day or for a while, she wasn't sure because he doesn't keep regular hours. I searched a couple of more stores on the edge of town but had no luck.
To assuage my disappointment I went to the Tillamook Cheese factory and went on their self-guided tour. About 1.7 million pounds of milk enter the factory each day and 167,000 pounds of cheese leave. At the end of the tour you can sample several varieties of cheese curds. There is also a highly efficient ice cream bar, which further assuaged my disappointment. Later I remembered that I had forgotten to go back to the high school to take a picture of the "Home of the Cheesemakers" entrance.
