I made it to Portland!


I was sad about the poor camera quality of my phone

My last few days riding! On my way out of Salem, I stopped in the bird sanctuary of Plum Island. I saw many awesome bird species and was able to hang out and rest and enjoying the day.

More birds on Plum Island

I spent the night in Portsmith, New Hampshire. I spent the time with Jeff and Chris with their daughter Katie and her Irish husband Emmett. I spent the evening talking, eating burritos and s’mores, and watching Emmett get destroyed in Cribbage.



New Hampshire!

I spent today going up to biking up to Portland. It was only mildly rainy, and I was able to make good time up to Portland.




More mushy trails

I made it to Portland in excellent time (well technically South Portland, but close enough.) I made it! I have no clue what I am going to do now, as I was kinda putting off thinking about what I was going to do until I got here.


Once I road in I talked to people about the best ice cream in the area. I went to Willard Scoops, and they make their own ice cream from scratch. Their mint chocolate chip ice cream had real mint leaves in it!



Celebratory Ice Cream!

I went out for Cider and Falafel with my portland hosts, Joe and Charley. After eating on the beach, we went and watched the sunset over the ocean.

  1. Congratulations on your accomplishment. You are really something to have made that ride. We enjoyed visiting with you at Summit, SD and glad you accepted the invitation of the Rambling Pheasants to join us for supper. We all enjoyed your company. I was also impressed to meet someone your age that preferred Android over iphone 😉
    Again, congratulations.
    Butch and Karen
