Video: Walk For Liberty Day 12 - The Short Hike

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

We do a short hike and see more beautiful Oregon mountain scenery.  I also ask the question: why we need government to manage animals and wildlife, when people can take it upon themselves to manage them on their own property?

Monday, April 28th, 2008

It’s a misty morning at our new campsite, but we head into town to pick up an internet connection.  We then go for our longest walk yet, and both Brooke and I take precautions against future blisters.

We finally move from our original campsite at Cannon Beach, OR.  We also do a short walk in some snowy weather.

We encounter even more cold, wet weather, and trek up a long mountain pass.  And we actually get to use a rest area instead of the bushes.

The weather gets even colder, and tensions run high as we pass some parts of the road with small shoulders.  Also, we happen upon a strange outdoor sculpture store.

A cop pulls someone over ahead of us, but I’m not quite brave enough yet to do a copwatch without backup support.  We take some precautions against traffic and also blisters.  And I give my thoughts on marijuana.

Monday, April 21st, 2008

We encounter snow, and discover that our planned detour around highway 26 leads to a dead end, so I have to backtrack some.

Brooke’s blisters feel a lot better.  We also start down some back roads and consider some possible perils.

Brooke continues to deal with her blister, and discovers a possible second one underneath.  We also come across more cool scenery, as well as a funky bird house store.

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

We get to highway 26, and the shoulder is not too bad so far.  We will probably detour around part of it later on where the shoulder is small-to-nonexistent.

Brooke also got a blister, but treated it with supplies we got from REI.  We’ll see how it goes on day 4.
