Shawn is resting so I’m writing the blog. This is Sherpa the ebike, Hi, I do the work. First of all, I get along pretty well with Shawn. The only thing is, I have to keep reminding him that it is my job to keep us moving. Every time we start going up a hill or need to speed up he reflexively jams on my pedals. “Hey, ease up” I tell him, “you’re doing my job.”
The other thing I don’t like is sand. And I don’t like how Shawn lost control of me walking me down a hotel stairway and bashed my light into the hotel wall denting my basket. One more thing- I have nice lines, simple and strong, but those saddlebags sag and bulge my hind area. I just hope people don’t think it’s me. Shawn doesn’t care, he’s at that age where he is in denial about the importance of good looks.
Oh yeah, we went a long way today, over 130 miles. I could go farther but Shawn’s fanny gives out. Don’t blame the seat, it’s the most comfy one we could find with a suspension seatpost. No, the fault lies elsewhere.
One more thing. I am covered with road dust and need cleaning. We just bought some new baby wipes. Hey, use what’s left of the old wipes to clean me! I prefer a shower but we’re camping.
Now the pictures.
There is a lot of water in Oregon and it seems to be confined to rivers. I’m not fond of it, don’t get it. Shawn takes lots of pictures of the stuff.
I’ve never seen a volcano.
Yeah, well that’s all that’s relevant. Blogging is easy. Don’t know why Shawn fusses over it so much when he should be cleaning me.
