You can drive in any US state with a drivers license from any other US state. However, if your residence is no longer in CT, then you must get an OR driver's license. You can read the address FAQ on the OR DOT site, but basically it says if you change your residence, you need to change your address with the DMV. As long as you are in OR temporarily ...

Haven't been to Oregon but the way it works in New Jersey where law is the same is as follows: You pull up to the gas station. You wait in the car until an attendant comes.

In general, no, you don't have to, particularly if you're just looking for a bed for one night, and aren't terribly picky. That said, the later you choose to pull off the road - particularly in peak travel season - the more likely you are to be greeted by that dreaded "No Vacancy" sign. (Or, in nicer establishments, a polite refusal at the front desk.) My ...

You cannot overnight inside of most National Parks in your car, but you can in the National Forests than surround them. Crater Lake, for example, is surrounded by Umpquah National Forest. You can boondocks there for free. This screen shot from the "public lands" app for iPhone shows it: There are two "dispersed camping" areas- Twin Lakes and a shelter. ...
