Nice trip and pics. Reminds me of the couple of years I lived in Oregon. Some of those cool nights would be great right about now.

Thanks for the photos.

I wonder how our other Oregon/Washington visitor is doing. I think he arrived just in time to "enjoy" the first wet system of the fall.

I have to add that Lena is a great sport . Not many women think sleeping in tiny tents , cooking breakfast over on an open flame , biking for forty miles and doing without bathrooms and showers as fun but she just rolls with the punches . Al, You are one lucky guy !

So, you are convinced she's doing it of her own free will?

Great pics of your trip Al. The scenic pics reminded me of our trip to Mt. Hood some time back for a wedding. That Columbia River area is really great. Beautiful country. Thanks again for the photos.

Now that you mentioned it I realize Al either plays a subliminal tape every night or Lena is a Stepford wife . I hope Al check's her batteries regularly !

Hope to be doing some of the same things pretty soon. Should hopefully get the VERA this school year and be heading to Spokane to our house just on the north side of the centennial trail. Planning on riding e.washington and into Idaho regularly. Don't think I am up to the camping part anymore. And.... I can't ride a DF bike anymore and have a recumbent that is a whole lot more comfortable on rides. Now if I can just get my damn Achilles fixed up.

Really enjoyed your pictures. You guys look like you have so much fun together. I can tell that Lena is having fun just being with you and enjoying your time together. She probably doesn't know what adventure will come next and that's part of the fun...being spontaneous.
