Day 88 Mckenzie Btidge to Cobourg

Today was a day of two halves. First 30 miles were as dull as ditchwater on a horrible road with fast  cars, trucks and a not very wide shoulder. Second 25 miles were on a nice quite road thtough idyllic countryside not dissimilar to Yorkshire. Last 10 miles involved a detour into the very large city of Eugene to visit the REI Adventure store to buy fuel and bottles for my Trangia Stove.

I also visited the AMTRAK station and booked tickets for the final part of the trip. This is due to a slight change of plan which will add even more miles to the trip and which I will reveal in a subsequent post.

Tomorrow is an 80 mile + day to Florence and is THE FINAL LEG OF THE TRANSAMERICA TRAIL.
