Day 16: SF to Portland

Leaving SF

To this point, we'd managed to keep most of our drives to under 8 hours and to confine most our driving to the daylight hours. This was not to be the case on this leg. We woke at Taylor and Tanya's in the morning and Lori found herself with a migraine. It took several hours to sleep it off enough to move, so we didn't actually leave SF until 3 in the afternoon. When we got in the Tourmobile, the engine light came on, which meant we had to make a quick stop in Oakland for an oil change. By the time we got going, we had only a few hours left of daylight, so we didn't get to see anything of northern California or southern Oregon beyond the long, dark, winding mountain roads on which we were mostly afraid to drive over 60 miles an hour. We didn't arrive in Portland until about 2 a.m. It was raining.
