DAY 52: BREMERTON, WA TO EUGENE, OR

The fifty-second day had begun in Bremerton, WA. As we headed southbound, we crossed a nice bridge on interstate 5 into a line of pines, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. We saw a woman who drives an electric powered bike as a career. They drive this specific model with a strong chassis. They are now totally behind typical electric bicycle riding. All geared up with multiple storage units on the bright orange bike and even with a rear view mirror helmet. A cool old-school Chevy truck. It was lowered in a pimped-down style with green rims. The truck was even complete with fuzzy dice in the mirror. We got an amazing shot of the I.D. 4 between the hazelnut trees, where many are grown in the Pacific Northwest. The car looks sweet between the near-silhouetted trees. We met a man that was so proud of his custom made hot rod. It had a pearl white interior and a candy apple paint job. We then came across a vineyard and the I.D. 4 got to enjoy the valleys of Oregon’s wine country. We made it down to Salem, OR and while there, we visited the Hopewell Hub. It was a quaint, wooden building covered in foliage. Started by 3 sisters, it is an artistic space and general store that has amazing ice cream as well. We appreciate them and they were very kind. There were some guys we met and they were all riding electric one-wheels. One was like a one-wheeled unicycle and he said it could go up to 45mph. We stopped and chatted with them about personal electric movement, they loved showing off for the camera and were excited to have us take their picture. We then concluded our day in Eugene, OR.
