    Morning Cycle.

    August 12, 2017 in the United States

    Got upto the grim news that Liverpool had conceded a sloppy equaliser. Not happy. Nice cycle should help. Had one planned that might just do the trick. 23 miles along the Tillamook Bay and estuary and using forestry roads to cut back to Netarts. Started out and refreshing is probably the polite way of describing the temperature. Still a good chunk was uphill so it worked. Initially I was on the Cape Meares stretch - some nice views and some dodgy roads. At the other end, just by the road block duty was done - informing a big group of cyclists that the road hadn't entirely been swallowed up by the sea. Nice easy cycle along the river & so many cyclists going the other way - maybe drivers in Oregon are courteous towards cyclists...
    A short spell on the main road to Netarts suggested otherwise - plenty of inappropriate overtaking by pick-ups & 4WDs. Thankfully most of the way back was forestry roads - very quiet. At Netarts there was no avoiding the main road - back to the bad old ways. Pulled to the side of the road to take a photo - was given grief by a pick up for being in the way. If your car barely fits on the carriageway & you find it difficult negotiating obstacles because of this, don't blame me - get a smaller car. To soften the annoyance there were tentative signs that this may end up being a sunny day.

    Tillamook Cheese Factory

    September 27, 2015 in the United States

    Karl had been dreaming of the Tillamook cheese factory for months, so we made a slight detour when we came down out of the Tillamook Forest to go eat more cheese and ice cream than most people would consider socially acceptable. Ahh, the joys of bike touring.

    Tillamook Cheese Factory & Air Museum

    June 3, 2016 in the United States

    Vi overnattede på et fint lille hotel i byen Newberg og kom først derfra ved 11-tiden efter en hyggelig formiddag med lidt praktiske gøremål på hotellet. Vi kørte til Tillamook, som er meget kendt for deres oste-produktion. Vi besøgte Tillamook Cheese Factory, som viste sig at have et stort og populært besøgscenter. Vi havde forinden læst noget om, at man kunne få en rundvisning, men vi var lidt i tvivl om man skulle ringe og spørge først. Men overrasket blev vi, for der var tale om et yderst professionelt besøgscenter med smagsprøver, souvenir shop, delikatesse shop, cafe og isbod, samt selvfølgelig et hævet observationsområde, hvor man kunne følge hele produktionen. Imponerende og mange lækre smagsprøver.
    Bagefter kørte vi til Tillamook Air Museum, som har til huse i den bygning der har verdens største frie spænd i træ i en konstruktion, den imponerende store Hangar B. Sammen med søster-bygningen Hangar A, udgjorde de grundstenene i Tillamook Naval Air Station fra 1942 til 1948. Her hørte Navy BLIPS til, som var luftskibe (primært K-Class) der bevogtede skibskonvojer og sikrede de amerikanske kyster mod tyske og japanske ubåde. Hangar A brændte desværre i 1992.
    Turen forsatte derefter til Lincoln City, hvor vi havde hotel for natten.
    Dagen får 3 stjerner, hvor en stor omgang vasketøj fra morgenstunden trækker lidt ned.
    Roadtrip: I dag: 198 km - i alt: 1.651 km

    Vermont Lookalike in Oregon

    July 7, 2015 in the United States

    Tillamook, Oregon is a dairy farming community with forests and mountains on the Oregon coast. The town feels exactly like Vermont to us, down to the ever present smell of manure!

    We're leaving the Oregon coast today. We will definitely miss the cooler temperatures. It's mostly in the 60s during the day, and high 50s at night. We won't miss our towels never drying though!
