Travel on Four Wheels

Thanks to some very nice friends, I have had a break from cycling for a few days. One of my blog readers has a Montessori school in Newport, and offered me the apartment above for a few days. I had a great time spending time with my friend, meeting many cute kids, doing a few errands and explorations, and relaxing and resting up.

Then, some other blog readers whom I had met on their visit to Panama invited me to stay with them in Florence. This was a couple days ride down the road but with both friends wanting to drive me, instead of me biking over a very hilly and dangerous bit of road without shoulders, we all decided to meet in the middle and hand me off to my next hosts.

It was a beautiful drive and we made a couple stops to enjoy the scenery.

It has been great to see my friends. It’s also been wonderful to have a place to land at this time because the weather has been cold, windy, and rainy, not a fun time to be on a bike or in a tent. So, this has been nice for many reasons.

You just never know how things are going to go. Who would have thought that these friends who are connected with me through my Panama blog, would be helping me on my bike trip in Oregon! It’s been really great to see them though, and I so appreciate the hospitality. When you are on the road it’s such a treat to have a comfortable place to rest, regroup, clean up, and recharge, and it’s such a pleasure to spend a bit of time with such nice people.

Tomorrow, Friday the 15th, the weather report is predicting a major improvement. It’s supposed to get warmer and no rain is predicted for many days, so I will be on my bike again rolling down the road. More experiences and adventures await.
