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

Day 82: Florence to Beverly Beach SP

Wednesday August 6, 1986, 60 miles (97 km) - Total so far: 4,377 miles (7,044 km)

The coast is cold and windy, with a steady NW breeze. Most of the day was foggy and cold and I could hardy see the ocean. I took my time today just relaxing and see the sights. I stopped at the sea lion caves and took a break. I ended up talking to a whole bunch of tourists and had a nice time. Many people were amazed I rode all the way from Yorktown Virginia. (this is where I said my journey was "Uphill and Against the Wind" to the elderly couple asking me all kinds of questions)

I left the sea lion caves and took my time riding because I wanted to go nowhere in a hurry. I stopped in Newport and had some lunch at McDonalds. While eating lunch I wrote out a few postcards and got them mailed out.

This is one of those postcards I wrote home from Newport. This one was to Tom, the owner of the bike shop I worked at when I was 13.

I departed Newport and arrived in Beverly Beach SP and got setup with all the other bikers. There are tons of people touring the coast but they are all going south.

I sat around most of the day just relaxing and thinking about where my life is headed. I'll be back in college and back to reality in a couple of weeks. I'm not sure if I'm in the right major program and I've been thinking about making some changes.

I'm going to take my time and spend some days off on the coast. I don't have to be in Portland until the 14th for my flight home.

These pictures from the Oregon Coast are from a recent trip, 2003(?). I didn't take any further pictures until Astoria.
