The parting shot: Leaving Portland on Amtrak Cascades train 508 to Seattle at 6:50 pm. Then tomorrow, Orcas Island! Excited. Quite a few cyclists on the train, too. Ran into Lynne Fitzsimmons leaving the train (it originated in Eugene) and a dude with an S&S’ed adventure bike. Dude next to me has a Nitto Hat and a Rivendell water bottle. A woman has Swift panniers, another, a North St. bag. It’s the Bike nerd train!
And just after I got on, the sky opened up! Thankfully the weather will be better for the rest of the trip.
And bearbear is along with me, plus new friend Meanderin’ Moose.
