Vey and since I was more or less bound to pass by I decided to stay for a couple of weeks at the west-coast of the USA.
After I got picked up from the airport in Portland we went to Otis, a small community close to Lincoln City in Oregon. As soon as I could manage my jetlag I started to roam around with Gary to get my first impressions of my new context. While Gary showed me his favorite places I could talk some to some strangers. One was a guy traveling the whole west-coast of the USA on his bicycle. That impressed me big time and a vision grew inside of me.
Besides hiking and visiting all major cities around Otis we made a day trip on a nearby river. We took Berry along who was actually the owner of the small raft. This is a great thing to do to relax.
