Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Why not? Makes her feel needed.

Does give her some leverage though.

This is our 3rd trip to the campus this year, and we’ve been a couple of times before that. Oregon has been Maddie’s favorite college since she was 9. The only thing not happy about her going to UO is my bank account.

Finally figured this Varia out. Spent all day trying to see the footage on my phone through the app, and true to DC rainmaker it would not work.

I just now put the app on my Ipad and it worked instantly. The footage is all there and it doesn’t take long at all to download or watch. The picture is stable and very clear.

Only thing at the moment, I had it set up for recording only when it detects a miss, it recorded the whole time. It breaks it all down in 39 second chunks. Not a big deal today because I didn’t really have any excitement but if I had a day of a lot of excitement it would be hard to find.

Night before last's hotel was definitely worth $44 more than this place in Othello, but I'm happy to be in a room after a another night of camping.

Round one of sink laundry done, just have tights an a couple pair of socks left to wash.

I got a motel room one night during my recent tour. The forecast was for 90% chance of rain starting at 4 a.m. and lasting into early afternoon. I did not want to have to make coffee and pack up in the rain at an unfamiliar campground. Didn;t know if there was a pavilion there. Sure enough, when I got up at 5 and went to the lobby for coffee it was raining pretty good.

Riding in the rain isn't necessarily bad. Packing in rain is. When you end the day, everything is usually still wet.

Eleven days without shaving. First time in at about 40 years. Might have to get a recumbent.

Riding in the rain isn't necessarily bad. Packing in rain is. When you end the day, everything is usually still wet.
My ex and I toured around Oregon, 600+ miles in 9 days and it rained nearly every day. The rain was usually short duration and we were able to see it coming and find shelter and wait it out, or the rain came after we got to out motel.

One day we saw the black cloud coming and we found an overpass, the only shelter around, and we just got sprinkled on a tiny bit. A lady in a pick up truck stopped and offered to drive us to our motel and we accepted. It was raining so hard everything got soaked as if we had dunked our bikes in a lake. We had no dry clothes to put on, even our cash was wet. We should have just waited for the rain to pass.

Another day we rode into Grant's Pass before the rain. I remember lightning and thunder and hard rain and the car in the parking lot with it's sunroof wide open.

In 1978 we went to the Rainbow Gathering outside of Roseburg Oregon. We had only a tube tent. It rained day and night for four days, and we finally gave up and left, hitch hiking. It might have rained for weeks; we never checked.

The former Milwaukee Road bridge at Renslow marks the beginning of the most fun I've ever had on a loaded bike. ~17 miles of downhill gravel and sand. 3" tyres floated right over it all. The most stunning views of the Palouse in the late afternoon were a nice bonus too.
