For the next three weeks I will be on the back of a tandem bicycle, rolling down the entire Oregon Coast line with all of my worldly needs packed into a small trailer trundling along behind me. I will attempt something never before attempted…by me, that is. I plan to blog my way through this trip, sharing with you my experiences and images. New summits of technical expertise! Did I ever mention taking on these new learning curves are part of my re-wiring plan? I never was very good at crossword puzzles…..

What I’m hoping is that you’ll be able to follow along with me with ease. Either by watching for Facebook posts, or searching (in your google search bar) hashtag #spiritcoast. I might try to do a regular post through this blog as well, which means if you’re subscribed you’ll get notification. If you’re not, well, what are you waiting for? Subscribe in the right hand side bar! It’s easy and I NEVER, ever, share your email.

Now I have been down this entire Oregon Coast before. And I was SUPPOSED to be on the back of the tandem for our very first tour. Instead I drove the sag wagon because I’d managed to break a leg river guiding on the Lower Salmon River. I was very envious of those riders I was supporting….until I saw the hills. Yikes! This time around I WILL be on the back of that tandem and I WILL witness the unfolding of the Oregon Coast line from a bike’s eye view, hills included. Towing gear.

So count this blog as my personal invite to you to cheer me on down the road (and up the hills), cuz I’m gonna need it. Seriously, I would love to have your encouragement, comments, whatever, along the way. So LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS!!Captain Don, Stoker Connie

Photos in this blog are from that first Oregon Coast trip (except the one with me on the bike, heh, heh), quite a few years ago now. I look forward to sharing new, fresh insights to the wildness of the ocean wilderness. I hope you’ll follow along.

My work is an expression of the deep connection I feel with the natural world. When I’m on a photographic “walkabout” I allow the lines of separation to blur and settle into an immersion, if you will, that becomes the images you’ll see on this website.
