I woke Tuesday in an all out thunderstorm. I needed to unplug and go – my stay is up. Keira refuses to go outside and do her business. From the online weather, the storm looks like it will last until evening, but it’s also very local, so I decided I might as well go now – not getting better any time soon. I’m glad I loaded up the bike last night, not so glad I didn’t disconnect the electrical. Obviously, I did not kill myself working with the shore power in the downpour.
About 15 minutes north on the 101 my windshield wipers stopped working, not completely – they would still cycle once with the washer button, but would not keep wiping in any other setting. Just as I was about to pull over and wait out the storm the rain stopped and gave way to a light fog. The rest of the drive was beautiful forest, small towns, ocean views.
I’ll be spending the next week at an RV park near Coos Bay, Oregon, with a 50 foot walk to the beach.
