Uphill and Against the Wind - TransAm E-W
By Dave T

Day 87-90: Newberg Oregon - Final days

Monday August 11, 1986

August 11-14, 1986

I spent 3 days in Newberg, at Clay's house waiting for my flight on the 14th. Clay took us to the bike shop and we all got boxes to pack up our bikes. We spent some time sightseeing around Portland and just relaxing.

Diane says... "I think I'm staying "

What?

When it came time to go, we all said our goodbyes. Clay took us all to the airport and dumped us off, Fred on the 13th and me on the 14th.

I got to the airport and there was a short delay in the flight. I was standing around and ended-up talking to the pilot of the flight as we waited for our plane to arrive. I told him about my trip and we talked for about 20 minutes. Finally the plane arrived and we all boarded. The plane was ready to go when the stewardess (flight attendant) came to me and said the Captain wanted me to sit in first class. I grabbed my stuff and moved up to the first class section. The door was open to the cockpit and the captain leaned over, looking back, grinning, gave me the "thumbs up". I flashed back "thumbs up".

During the flight back to Detroit I just looked out the window at the ground and scenery. The whole journey flashed before me in my mind. So many miles, so many people, so many friends.

"Thumbs up" from the pilot was a fitting end.
