So day one of actual biking is officially drawing to an end.  We got our bikes at about eleven, assembled them and were on the road by about 3 today.  Our goal was to go about fifteen miles to the first available campsite and decide from there what we were going to do.  Roughly ten miles into the ride both Thomas and myself were having a far more difficult time pedaling than we should have.  Little did we know until we looked at our rear wheels that our brakes were actually rubbing  against the wheel.  The scenery around us was absolutely amazing.  Mountains all around with plateaus covered in green trees.  A river off to our right as cars sped by...  Already we have been able to see such a beautiful piece of America.  About an hour and a half ago we reached Grants pass and began to look for a place to stay for the night.  We came across a campsite named Shroeders park and decided to stay there for the night.  Generosity is something you never really expect especially when you've done hard physical labor and are only looking for a place the rest and eat.  Well needless to say thats all that was on our minds as we pulled into the campsite.  In so doing we ran into Sally and  Diane sisters who both work for the Oregon state park and were our contacts to reserve a site.  As we talked they totally blew us away and not only paid for our campsite they also gave us each $20!!  Mind blown!  We honestly can't say thank you enough.  In addition as we continue this journey I want to thank you guys for all of your help and support that you give.  Each prayer, conversation, and word of encouragement means So much to us. So as I get ready to eat dinner I want to thank you dear blog reader for your generosity.
