Maybe Oregon will be warmer?

Last summer we were searching for gas stations and motels to escape the heat, this year we are buying extra layers and drinking hot chocolate by the gallon. The pacific northwest has thus far proven itself to be a beautiful but cold and wet land. No surprises there I guess. After our epic 113 miler into Hoquiam (only it's neighbour, Aberdeen, was less attractive) we have spent the last two rainy days climbing through rainforest (that is not a typo), skirting the Columbia river, and scaling the Astoria bridge, which was an ode to some of the bridges of last year, built tall to allow supertankers to pass beneath it. Tonight we sleep in an rv park in Seaside, Oregon; not a patter of a raindrop to be heard, for now.

  1. I've been through Aberdeen. It was crap. Good thing the rainforest is nicer. Can't believe you did 113 miles in one day. I guess you will be leaving your ass on the west coast.
