Day 2 started with renewed enthusiasm knowing that it can’t be much worse that Day 1 (actually I KNOW it can and WILL). It started with the decision to go with the alma mater jerseys. Of course there is mine (Go Cougs) and Gregs (The other Oregon school). Greg just got his jersey in the mail and was sooo excited to open it and put it on. It was just like Christmas morning. Greg eagerly ripped open the package and immediately pulled the jersey over his head. Cheryl leaned over to me and whispered “Is that a D on the side?” Little did we know, Greg went to Dregon State University, “Home of the Deavs.” (seriously, you can't make this stuff up!)
Trying to give you a a first hand look at how it was on the first part of the route. Check out the first video of the trip.
As usual, the scenery was beautiful. We saw the typical miles of beautiful fields but we also rode through some nice canyons. There are two main stays of this blog, the route and the scenic pictures so here you go (panoramic for you Jenna)
Oh by the way, I added a map I will try and update on our progress under the "Follow Us" page. Check it out.
We are 144 miles from Sunriver. We are going to TRY and get there in 2 days but there are some more hills to negotiate first (surprise surprise) so we'll see how we do tomorrow.
