    The tug on the Dorena-Hickman Ferry just before the deck hand looped them together. Then a cable was tightened which held the tug & barge together.

    I just want to thank Opa and JMforPres for a wonderful trip. I also want to thank everyone who followed along and hope you enjoyed the pictures and write up. I'm sure we will be workin on and planning a new adventure soon. There is a lot to see in this wonderful land and hope in some way we have inspired some of you to get out there and take an adventure of your own. If we can help in any way fell free to contact us and we will do our best to help in any way we can. DSCN2882.JPG long and lonely roads DSCN2676.JPG

    @augiedog & @The Opa
    It was great seeing you guys & following along online as you went in either direction! You may be interested to know that your pics also served as a bit of a guide for the younger generation's current trek out this way.

    Maybe I'll have a bike that doesn't limp along next time!
