Day 2, Return to Portland & beyond #TransAmRide4TBI 7/10/17

Woke up Monday morning, broke camp, and got back on the bikes. Jr filtered some water from our steam to fill out bottles for the ride.  We didn’t bring cook stove for this shortened, unplanned, part of trip, so ate granola bars for breakfast as we went. 

The ride was pretty easy going back. Beautiful day to ride, and incredible scenery along the way. Arrived back in Portland in good time. 

Thankfully, when we got back to our host, and hostesses house, our host, George, had Jr’s bike! It took us a couple hours, but we got his bike put together, returned the rental (Thanks again Upcycle bikes!), and got both trailers and our gear ready to set again. Lily again stuffed us with an incredible meal, and we were off. 

Didn’t have enough day left to go far, but made another 30 miles up the road. Getting us a few more miles east, and closer to our destination of NYC. 

Along the way, had a wonderful chat with lady working gas station. Filled up our tank (for my backpacking stove) for 50 cents. Then made quick stop at grocery, where we met an great family (husband, wife, daughter, and son), and had a great chat with them. From there it was just a few miles to the campground, where had another horrible campsite 😉
