9/16/14 - Astoria

In front of the Columbia River Maritime Museum, Astoria, OR

9/16/14 - Astoria (9.5 miles)

Changed rooms in the motel to get a 1st floor room (makes it a lot easier with the bike).  Sent a package home with some souveniers and some unneeded equipment.  I really don't have that much unneed stuff this trip unless you count the tools and spare parts.  That's the stuff you may not need at all, or can make the difference between walking or riding to the next town in the event of a mechanical problem.

Visited the Columbia River Maritime Museum and the Lightship Columbia.  I don't think I would have liked to have been stationed on a ship like that.  I would have spent more time at the museum, but they kicked me out because they wanted to go home!

The camera's level!  Crossing the bar under rough conditions


  1. I'm told if you're still in Astoria go to bowpickers. A fish place for good eats!!

  2. Snug harbor inn in Lincoln. ..I'm told it's the oldest running bar on oregon.
