PCH Tour: Goodbye to the Hammock Guys

California Coastline

Day 40 – I woke up early to see the Hammock Guys shove off for San Francisco. They were going to spend a couple of days in the city before taking a train back to Vancouver. We said our goodbyes and watched them pedal off into the morning fog.

For lunch, I went with Russ’s family to an old bar / restaurant called the Aquarium. We ate some good food, had beers and chatted about our adventures. I didn’t want to overstay my welcome, but Debbie and Wes invited me to stay longer. At least until their son’s birthday on Sunday.

After talking about all of the good food they would be eating over the next couple of days, I decided, why not. After lunch, Russ, Debbie and I went to the post office so I could ship some things home that I wasn’t using. I figured I could drop a little weight and make the rest of the trip a bit easier. I shipped home some books I hadn’t read and an extra book bag full of odds and ends.

  • Hello, I am looking at riding my bicycle down the PCH from Vancouver to San Fran in June. Do you think I could use just a Eno Hammock for my sleeping gear or should i look at a tent/bivy?

    • Hi Steve, I would think you could easily do that. I personally had a small tent, but the two Canadians that I rode with for a while did exactly that. Just make sure to have enough strapping to go between larger spans. It may come in handy. But yeah, I don’t think those guys ever had any problems with finding a spot to setup their Hammocks. Good luck and have fun! It’s a beautiful ride. Especially Oregon.
