Portland, OR Build Day Our last build day and it was a good one. We helped out 4 different homes and it was awesome. I felt like they gave us a lot of independence and it was really productive. All I know is that I can’t wait til I get to my local Habitat to help build!

Portland, OR -> Vernonia, OR
The ride out of Portland was amazing. We started the day riding through the city and stopping by some of Portland’s greatest hotspots. First it was to get some doughnuts at the famous Voodoo doughnuts. To wash it down was a mocha from the Stumptown Coffee (which started in Oregon by the way). Then off we were for a nice ride to Vernonia for our last campout. At the site we were greeted by the tandem bike that Sarah was going to take to the beach so she could ride in even with her bum elbow. I got a chance to ride a tandem for the first time and it was soooo much fun. Gosh I love biking. Ended the night with some festivities and a whole lot of excitement for the big day!

Of course I had to ride it with my bro too
Vernonia, OR -> CANNON BEACH, OR!
After a long hard summer, we finally did it. We made it to the other ocean. I imagined what this would be like since October and I can say it was nothing like what i thought. It was so much more! Riding through the streets of Cannon Beach having strangers scream and cheer for you was surreal. Following that with a sprint into the cold Pacific Ocean capped off what can only be described as a perfect moment. The only way people can understand it is to do it!
Everyone celebrating in the Pacific Ocean!
