I took the long way back from my Oxbow bike overnight on Wednesday (Feb 10). It was about 43 miles total, and I did a detour to the beginning of the Columbia Gorge.

The first Coffee Outside was at Oxbow campground in the AM. I actually made TWO cups o' coffee there.


I also made some pancakes for breakfast.


Coffee Outside number 2 was at Women's Forum, the first good viewpoint of the Gorge from the Historic Columbia River Hwy.


The third and final Coffee Outside was coming home. Chinook Landing is a park and boat launch on the Columbia, and a fine place for a coffee break.


Alright Pondero, top this! [biggrin]

Well played, Mr. Rambleneur!

I'd probably need to pack some decaf for anything beyond the second brew-up, or risk some unpleasantness. The cool thing to point out here, in my opinion, is the relaxed approach to bicycle travel. No need to hurry, or rush through things. Instead, take time to savory the surroundings. That's the takeaway for me. That's what has given me the most joy on my outings.

Three distinct settings...bravo!

Exactly. Don't tell Brad I used that word.

As mentioned in Doug's post in the "achievements" category, however, quality is the goal. The cool thing is that it appears you achieved both quality and quantity in your recent outing.

I've reached a quantity of quality! [biggrin]

Well, I only got a single brew-up in my outing today.  But I did work a hammock into the mix.  So there's that...

I admit to being envious of your side-kick. The best one I've ever found for me is Gumby's horse, Pokey. Mrs. Pondero has a little Pokey, but I'll need to get my own I suppose.

I have a Moose. His name is Mooseass (Moos-iz). He belongs to my wife. She loaned him to me. He kept me company for 135 remote, snowy miles during the 2008 Arrowhead Ultra. He kept watch for wolves and was my navigator. He's on top of my sleeping bag hanging off my handlebars:

I think Chris succeeds in the quality over quantity department with this picture.

I dunno, that hammock looks awfully uncomfortable... ;-)
