After a nice flight from Atlanta to Portland, and a two and a half hour bus trip from Union Station to Astoria, I'm at the start of the ride in Astoria.

Registration and bike assembly is today, followed by a meet and greet, orientation, and dinner. Then, the ride starts tomorrow. Temperatures in the low 50's and rain today; a little bit different from what I am accustomed to in north Georgia. Never the less, I'm looking forward to meeting the other riders and getting my bike put back together today so I can start riding east.
