Everyone's experiences are different, but I have put on wet shorts in the morning with no bad consequences. It's not much different than riding in the rain, which is sometimes unavoidable on tour.

My simplistic approach:+1
Figure out what you would wear on the coldest day. Bring that.
Add some extra socks,shorts, and a shirt so they can be drying after a wash at any given time.
Add rain gear.
Add some shoes other than your cycling shoes.
I don't want to go down to Astoria but want to get on (connect) to the TransAm route as quickly as possible starting from Bellingham.I believe that the quickest way to connect to the TransAm is to go to Astoria, but you have ruled that out.
Thanks everyone...sorry I should have been more clear.That question seems less clear to me.
I was wanting to know the best way to re-connect to the TransAm route.
why does your SPOT GPS only show data for a very short distance?Did you notice in the lower left of the screen there is a "Page 1 of N" display? Look at the other pages.
The guy put a $13 chain on claiming there was no point in using expensive chains, use cheap ones and change them every 500 miles was his recommendationWhen I get weird advice like this, it's usually because they guy is selling me the only thing he has in stock.
