A Delicious Stop in our Journey...Tillamook

Since every rider needs a break for good food, we decided to stop in Tillamook, Oregon  at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. What can we say? Our inner fat kid took over the planning at this point. So while we ponder all that delicious cheese, we thought we'd look into the history of Tillamook to take our mind off eating.
     The Tillamook factory has over 1 million visitors every year! Tillamook county's first cheese factory was established in 1894 by T.S. Townsend and Peter McIntosh. This co-op continued to evolve and eventually the Tillamook Cheese Factory was built in 1949 and has been producing delicious cheese ever since. They recently just celebrated 100 years in business. And we thought we'd stop by and help them celebrate a little belatedly by sampling some of their cheese. So there you have it, the cheesiest stop on this entire ride. Stay tuned for the next waypoint on the Long Ride to Sturgis...
