And we’re off!

April 11, 2019

I was blown away by all the support we received yesterday. Team Be Better suited up to escort the Mighty Jax out of town and the Canby Police Department blocked traffic at intersections to help us on our way. Wow! Once we left town, a steady 12-14 mph headwind tried, but failed, to blow us away. The dog trailer felt like a drag racing parachute, but we made it to Silverton and put the first paw print on our route map. My wife, Tammy, drove out to have a farewell dinner. Today will be another short ride to Lyons, where we hope to camp in the city park. Hopefully, we’ll start increasing our daily mileage on the other side of the Cascades. Our K9s For Warriors donations are up to over $4,500 and BHG Realty Partners is matching the first $5,000, so we are making good progress!

Conversation in our room last night: Mornin’ John! It’s 4:22 AM and I’m going out. Need anything? Mmm, no thanks. OK just thought I would ask. Now will you take me out? You @$$hl. 🙂

The Oregon Garden is a truly beautiful place to visit, eat and stay.

Can’t imagine how beautiful this place will be when Spring really kicks in
