I have been too darn tired to blog. And the Internet connections have been terrible. Sorry about that.
Day 0: I cheated. De drove me from Seattle to Astoria, which is the official start of the TransAmerica Trail anyway.
Day 1: More sightseeing, then Astoria to Nehalem Bay State Park. 49 miles, easy day, good views of the Pacific.
Day 2: To Whalen Island County Park, near Sandlake. Killer hills. 59 miles.
Day 3: Over the coastal range to Dallas. Rain all day. Skipped the tent, rode extra miles to find a motel. 70 miles. Still alive.
The 65 miles or so to Eugene down the Willamette Valley should be a breeze. We will see.
Details and pics later. Maybe when I find a fast connection.
