A very good sign

When traveling the coast of Oregon, this sign, “Right Lane Ends”, is a very good sign. When there is a hill, the ODOT provides a “passing lane”. When you see the sign mentioned, it means you have reached the end of the ascent, and there is no longer a need for the additional lane. I celebrate when I see that sign.

Tonight, I’m in Brookings, OR. That means that tomorrow morning, I’ll enter California. It will be the third state of this tour. The first climb tomorrow is over 1000 feet. Today’s highest was right at 700 feet. These hills look unbelievable on a profile map, but they are fairly well graded, and are managable, if a cyclist remembers to go their own pace, rather than trying to keep up, or catch up with someone else. That’s what I was trying too hard to do, until I was back “on my own”.

Last evening, I camped with a group that I had played leapfrog with all day. They are very nice, and we played leapfrog again today. It’s Nora’s birthday, so, “Happy Birthday”, Nora.

Tonight, I’m in the hiker/biker campsite with 3 people I know a little, and 6-10 people that I haven’t even seen yet. I’ve cycled 3 miles into town, to use wifi and have dinner and it’s already dark, so I have to keep this brief.

Will add pictures of the beautiful scenery another day.
