Po sedmih mesecih cakanja,..

Po vseh teh mesecih govorenja se je končno začelo. V četrtek zvečer sva z mojim sopotnikom, izbral sem tudi že ime zanj in sicer Mr.Will ( volja ) v prevodu prispela v Astorio. Na hitro sem v bližnjem parku postavil šotor in stežka zaspal, ker sem vedel, da jutri bo končno napočil dan, ki sem ga čakal že nekaj mesecev.

Zjutraj sem se najprej odpravil do prodajalne s kolesi, ki se je odprla šele ob desetih?, kjer sem kupil rezervne “noge” beri zračnice za Will-a in pa kljucavnico za vsak primer, ce bi si ga kdo želel “sposodit”. Pot skozi mesto je trajala kar nekaj časa, predvsem zato ker sem moral mimoidočim razlagat, da v vozičku ne vozim otroka in je njihov strah zaradi vročine čisto odveč,.. Da bi prišel iz mesta, sem moral prečkati dolg most, kjer pa je bila velika gužva in zato so bili prvi kilometri moje poti zelo živčni. Po tem pa se je vse skupaj umirilo in lahko sem užival v lepotah zahodne obale Oregona pri tem pa me je spremljalo še lepo vreme, nekje okoli 27° stopinj, skratka dober začetek 😉

Ker pa sem pozno pričel z hojo se nisem imel namena nič kaj ustavljat pred končno točko dneva. Kdaj pa kdaj, ko so mi noge dale vedet, da je čas za počitek sem sedel za par minut, spil malo vode in nadaljeval pot. Okoli pete ure popoldne po 27-ih kilometrih sem prišel do Seaside-a.

Pot sem nadaljeval še dober kilometer, kjer sem našel primer prostor za spanje, postavil šotor in se po koncu prvega dne zadovoljen odpravil spat 🙂

Odlicen prostor za pisanje bloga :)

P.S. V prihodnjih postih bodi tudi fotografije, trenutno imam problem na relaciji fotoaparat prenosnik 😉

 

After all these months of talking, it has finally started. Thursday evening, me and my travel companion – I have also already chosen a name for him: Mr. Will (as in: my will to do this) – arrived in Astoria. I quickly set up my tent in a park nearby and only managed to fall asleep with some difficulties, knowing that tomorrow is finally the day I have been waiting for for several months now.

In the morning, I first went to a bike shop that only opened at 10 a.m.   and I bought extra “legs” – meaning tires – for Will, and a lock, just in case somebody wanted to “borrow” him. The walk through the city took quite some time, especially because I had to explain to the people passing by that I do not have a child in my wagon and that they do not need to worry about the heat … In order to get out of the city, I had to cross a long bridge that was very jammed, so the first kilometers of my journey were very stressful. After that, everything became more peaceful and I could enjoy the beauty of the west coast of Oregon, and I had really nice weather, around 27 °C (80.6 °F). So, all in all, a very good start

Since I started walking late, I didn’t plan to stop much before the final goal of the day. Here and there, when my legs let me know that it’s time for a rest, I sat down for a few minutes, drank some water and continued walking. Around 5 p.m., after 27 kilometers (16.8 miles), I arrived in Seaside.

I decided not to go to the beach, because my priority was to first find an appropriate place to set up my tent, since this is new to me and I also need more time for it  However, because the police officer I met was not very happy about me camping in the town, I decided to make my journey of the day a bit longer – and it was a good decision too, because I saw a Pizza Hut at the exit from the town, and the most important part was that there was a sign outside, saying: All you can eat for $5,95. What better way to finish the day   Of course, I took advantage of the opportunity and had a man-sized meal. I continued my journey for about one more kilometer and then I found an appropriate location for sleeping, set up my tent and went to bed satisfied after a good first day

P.S. My future posts will also contain photos, at the moment I have a problem between my camera and my laptop
