Hello. I’m Suekichi!
I’m writing the next episode of the cycling tour in the US.
previous episode: Biked across California of the US for 2 months. -episode 0-
Kelowna → Vancouver → Eugene
I headed to Vancouver in Canada after I left Kelowna.
Because I wanted to go to Eugene and I needed to take a train from Vancouver.
I took a bus from Kelowna to Vancouver at first. It took about 4 hours.
Reunion with friends I met in Kelowna
I had 3 days more until the departure so I got in touch with friends who I met in Kelowna. They gave me a room to stay. I really appreciated them.
They treated me super kindly with delicious food. I was ready for US.
Got on the train bound for Eugene!!
Arrived at Eugene called a hippy town
I spent 2 days in Eugene.
I walked around downtown and went to Spencer Butte Park for trekking.
I fully enjoyed Eugene.
What am I going to do next??
The purpose of going to Eugene was achieved. I didn’t have any plans so I needed to plan where I was going to next.
I asked the manager of the hostel “I wanna go to South” “I wanna see beaches”. Where should I go?
He said “You should go to the west coat and go down. There are many camping grounds along the shore.”
As I googled it, I knew that there were camping grounds every 50km along the shore. I liked the plan because It seemed like very adventurous and I could save money to stay at camping grounds.
Next morning, I got a bus to Florence in the west coast from Eugene.
Stared Walking down from Florence in Oregon.
I arrived Florence. I was excited because I saw the ocean!!
After I dropped in supermarket to get food, I started walking south to the camping ground.
Although I was afraid if I could make it, I kept walking.
To be continued.
