I was two weeks into my bike packing trip across America and travelling through the wet climate of western Oregon. A chance encounter meant I had a pretty special place lined up for a few days of rest and recovery.

Astoria, a port town at the mouth of the Columbia river in Oregon is the official start point for the Transamerica bike route and the beginning of my four month long bike packing trip from the west coast to the east coast.
The bike, the setup, and whats made it into my pack list for my Trans America trip across the U.S
