From a rave in Belden to a church in Chester, Ratatouille hikes and hitches his way through northern California to the Oregon border– and defends his camp from a bear. Really, it was a bear this time! Bluegrass in Belden. A mysterious shoe appears. Poop talk in Sierra City. A conversation with another hiker about being behind schedule on a thru-hike.
Next week Trailside Radio will take the week off as Ratatouille attempts to hike the entirety of Oregon in 14 days– 32.5 miles a day! Trailside Radio will return the following week to share that journey.
