So I may have been seen shaking my fist as we went across the Washington Oregon boarder on the Louis and Clark bridge. It was a cold ride, and not being a regular rider I was stuck in my helmet head all day. Questions kept coming up: am I making Matt uncomfortable, what ways could I re-situate my self so I can be more comfortable, is this bike going to make it, what was I thinking oh that’s right adventure! I hope to soon relax and just enjoy the ride. It wasn’t an emotional day like I had expected, I got excited to think I won’t be seeing the space needle for a while or Everett. To really enjoy where you live I feel you must leave it once in a while so you can come back and see the place in a new light! Nice first day with a ton of people watching, freezing fingers and good friends.
