Ok, so I took my first solo ride of any distance today in Oregon. I rode from my new home in Beaverton to Seaside, OR. Wow, was I impressed with the scenery. Spruce trees 100 feet high in a cathedral setting on both sides of Highway 26. My mouth was wide open for a good part of the trip. Up one mountain, down the other mountain for 60 miles each way.
Remember the scene in Crocodile Dundee where the mugger pulled out the switchblade & Dundee's companion reminded him the guy had just pulled a knife on him? He said, "That's not a knife,.....This is a knife". That's how I now feel about my old SC pine trees. Those weren't trees.......these are trees.
I think I'm gonna really love it here!
