Great Vibes !!!

Arrived to Portland! After a long flight and all necessary immigration administration at the airport we've made it to the Days Inn hotel here in Portland. The enthousiasme about Roll Over America already started in the plane. The flight attendant recognized my Tshirt and asked me enthousiasticly if I was one of the riders! She knew that due to the fact that a lot of other riders flew with United to Portland. She liked it very much and was even able to explain to me that we are having a "official" ride through Portland on thursday before we start our trip. She was going to attent together with family. Great!!
We picked up the bikes yesterday from the warehouse, the reactions of people in the city were also great. They just love it and shout all kind of enthousiastic questions / comments. If we keep these kind of responds during the ride it will be one great experience with everybody along the route.
The bikes are stored in the hotel in a conference room. Packed with all kind of colours and models. Today some final prep. and then we are off. Can't wait!!
