The injury is healing fine ( though somewhat painfully). I’m taking a week to get to San Francisco and hopefully heal more before biking again. First heading to Bend Oregon for 4 days. But first brunch at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood. It’s snowing and my car won’t make it up the hill. I must park and take the bus up.
This has definitely been the micro brewed beer tour. Lagunitas brewery was a must visit for me in Petaluma. I pinched the bus from Bodega Bay to Santa Rosa. I called an old acquaintance (friend?) that I grew up with, in Sunnyvale. I called him so I could come visit his winery. He said he was too sick to see me, yet he wasn’t sick enough to go to work and meet with clients & interact with his coworkers. He mentioned he read my blog when I biked across Europe, yet never posted a message to me? The moral of the story? The rumors I heard 40 years ago were proven to be true. So Fuck You Bob F., I wouldn’t walk across the street to your funeral.
I started riding on Highway 1 and just 10 miles from Fort Bragg I was run off the road
twice. If your thinking of trying bike touring? “ALWAYS” use a mirror they’re lifesavers. I stayed at Mackerricher State Park, quail visitors for breakfast and whale skeletons. There is a 3 mile bike path to Fort Bragg. A great little town, organic breakfast, fun shops, good cards and a super rock shop. I got my shredded shirt repaired by Sew & Sew, which was just bought by 3 lovely ladies a week ago, so I suggested it should now be Sew & Sew & Sew.
Ryan was our trusty park ranger. He worked 4 miles from Myers Flat and hadn’t seen the bumper sticker yet, yep I bought him one. The saying was so true yesterday but not as much today, if you grow marijuana. 10 years ago marijuana grown here sold for $5,000 per pound, today it can be bought for $600 per pound on CraigsList. The growers or ex-growers…..
This is my farewell tour to Oregon, biking the coast I’ve been living in Slovenia for the past 3 years but felt the need to have a formal farewell. I want to move back to somewhere in the EU, maybe Slovenia. America doesn’t represent my values as much as the EU does.
I’m trying to post using my phone, WordPress has some (many), flaws.
