Where The Pavement Ends

“You must be the bravest man in Oregon,” he said to me after pulling off my helmet. “Huh?” I ripped the earplugs from my ears. “You must be the bravest man in Oregon,” he repeated as his wife and another elderly couple walked toward me. “Oh really.

I carry the panniers to the bike. Then the dry bags. Then the tank panniers. And the tank bag. I stuff items of questionable purpose or utility into the top box. Loose ends get stashed in the tank bag. Other things are jammed into the pockets of my riding jacket. I gotta get out of […]
