The View from the Side of the Road….from Duane!
POPs Wow Ride
Yes it can rain in Oregon. Most of the day on Sunday – but are blessed to be with good people and a good cause.
Monday got to stay on Hwy 101 and what a great and beautiful state, lots of trees and cows – good for cheese and ice cream. Gary and Rosemary Stutzman from Lebanon, OR along with Enie, Karen and Loren Nisley joined us for evening meal and fellowship.
Tuesday was bright and sunshine all day. Brent Kauffman rode with the group and Howard Beachy drove along to take himself and Brent back to Lebanon after the days ride, real fun. Chris’ kitchen sent scones from her bakery – that was wonderful.
Wed. was another great day, lots of good scenery, bridges and almost perfect weather – but do understand my view of all this is from in a very nice Edge “by Ford” – may be slightly different from a bike seat! Another church has opened the doors to this six man team for dinner and the night.
Thursday- Made it to Port Orford mid afternoon, lots of wind and rain. Staying at a Christian Community Center – nice place. These guys are fun to be with and for a very good cause. Will head for So. Ore on Fri.
What a beautiful coast line we saw today. Sure glad I know the maker – he is Good. Made it to Brookings. Met up with Mona, Keith, Nate and Grace, as they came over from Medford airport. Grace met them there this noon. Grace and I will see Jerry Hogg to Medford airport tomorrow. This Presbyterian church has “wow” people to open their facility to the “POPsRide” group and provide a delicious casserole. All these hosts along Oregon have a real giving heart and it shows.
