I left Lincoln City, Oregon, on Wednesday, July 13. After dipping my rear wheel in the Pacific and saying goodbye to my new friends, Neil and Claudia, I started heading east.

I camped at the Polk County Fairgrounds in Rickreall, OR, that night. I had the place to myself.

Last night I stayed with a WarmShowers.org host in Corvallis, OR. More on this later, at the moment I am just too tired to post anything. Hopefully, tomorrow I can catch up.

Yesterday’s lunch was a bucket of these fantastic cherries from a farm stand along the road.
