The final day of the Goblin retirement tour featured a short ride, a three-bus journey from the coast to smokey, stormy and hot hot hot Medford for the flight home. A lot of moving parts... would I make all the connections? Plus... three big takeaways and an epilogue to the whole trip. Day 7 - Green Goblin Retirement Tour Brookings, Oregon to Medford, Oregon to Seattle, WA to... WV Check out pics over on Insta! Takeaways Trust your skills - it turns out my lack of faith in my ability to fix that chain ended up stealing some nice riding. I had plenty of bus opportunities to catch up if disaster struck, plus that Better World Club "towing" option. Should have taken the calculated risk earlier. Rushed the prep - two things... I didn't go through my tools bag, otherwise I would have had a spare quick link on hand to make a better fix than a twist and a prayer. Second thing was I landed in Portland late and had to leave within a few hours of waking up. That was a bad idea... it rushed my nephew visit and I never could do a once over on the bike. It is fun to meet people in camp again - I hadn't camped with anyone in the same campsite, let alone had a campground conversation since the summer of 2019... on the Oregon coast! It was fun to trade stories with the guy from Korea and share the conversation I had last episode. Makes me realize how much we've all been missing in this crazy 19 months!
