Sounds like a fun trip! Who makes those panniers? My bike setup looks so loaded down compared to yours- like I'm ready for the Zombie apocalypse or something. Safe travels!!!!

Novara or something.rei.
Consignment shops tho for deals.
Waiting on the north bound to pass.
Engine already unlocked . Water inside.luckily tho the window was locked it's the double doors and you can just pull both towards you and make a hole climb in .
Bike out back on the canadian grainer porch.panniers front in trash bag along with everything else heavy outta of the back panniers and off the bike.
Come on k falls. Spilt used oil on my shoes at work today. Need a Wal-Mart
No north bound for almost twelve hours. Hoping straight shot after we start moving.
Bike from k falls to shasta tomorrow.

Hopping a train with all your gear AND a bike?! Now that is fucking badass!! I personally believe the word “epic” is pretty overused, but imho, when you look up the word “epic” in the dictionary, there should just be that picture of your bike on the train for the definition.

Any helpful advise welcome
I'm going south to Redding or red bluff on UP line from k falls.
Should I get off in Dunsmuir/ or weed , hitching south to 36hwy or 299.
Or stay on the UP and hope it gets closer to my hwy I need to get too.
I have never ridin south past Dunsmuir so I am unfamiliar

The plan all along was wait for snow in Oregon and head south from Bend to bike parked on the coast near Arcata and start south on the 101. I've done the ride from here to there and back . Twice .
Now a part of the road taken by foot or in car. But I have yet to bike south from Arcata. Week of scattered showers as I arrive . My solar panel arrived early And is waiting at the bike. I've enjoyed the winter . Now that it has arrived enough to wanna go. Im out.
Seeking to get to bike by Monday.

36 is currently closed due to flooding; 299 is the way to go, but can be a bitch hitching out of Reddingneck. All the roads in NorCal have taken a beating from storms this week, and more are forecast through next week.

Thanks dune drifter . Cause my bike is in mckinleyville.at the end of 299.
Got some work , snow removal today so I guess hitch to Redding and buy local transit bus west on 299 outta the RABA station in Redding where the druggies just shoot in public .Only thing is there is bus the 1st and 3rd Saturday of month . And might mean I get stuck hitching from willowcreek or stuck in Redding west end of town. Still in Bend, right by the where the add end should park going south unless it hits reed market to cc and sit.
Snow is foot and half,
More where plowed by road . Up to my thigh.
I know it's very oogle of me. But I want a dpu, or gondalo

Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
