Ive Finally got enough matinence and mods done to feel comfortable taking the 26 year old on a trip. Im going from Eugene to Florence Oregon on tuesday the 16th. Via old hiway 36 It is much longer but quieter than 126. I was thinking of going the older Hiway 28 route from Brickervill to florence. Ive never been on either even though ive lived in oregon most of my life. Ill take a lot of pictures and camp in florence and go home the next day. Think Ill stay at JM Honeyman Memorial state park. it seems to have a well kept campground.

This will be my first SOLO micro vacation in 4 years. It is sooo overdue.

Im going the old roman route for food. Dryed stuff(mixed fruit and jerky) hard chese(Grano Padano) and unlevened crackers(rice cakes). Im adding proten bars from the organic store they look good. It should all fit nicly in my new bags.

I bought a single tent hoping to go camping this year. My boss breaking his collar bone ruined the idea of a summer elongated vacation on my bicycle(it WAS all I had). Just got the Rebel a few weeks agow. Ive been riding just about every day put 200 miles on it allready.

I just hope there issent a mechanical issue I haven't overlooked. It will be a week or more till I get the Origional air filter system. Hope thoes K&Ms that are in it wont cause problems on a long trip.

Wish me the best. (Hope it dosen't rain this summer in Oregon is werd)
Justin

That sure is some pretty country. Camping and bikes go together so well I'm surprised more folks don't do it.
