Going to be heading out June, bound for Portland. We'll be starting off from Ashland. Any advice, or info I should know?

You can walk and hitch along the Interstate (it is legal unless there is a city ordinance in a town you're passing through).

Also...might try it on any road there unless you see a sign that says it is illegal.

Do not try that shit in Washington.

Oregon is very safe to sleep out in the woods, you'll have a great time.101 is sweet
I wanted to take the 101. But it's looking more like it'll be the I-5 since we're starting in Ashland. But maybe me and my travel partner could take 101 back.

I don't have much advise but it should pretty easy to catch rides if you take the I-5. I hitched from roseburg to ashland, then from ashland to pdx and my longest wait was about 2 hours. People are usually pretty cool out here, i got food, money, and weed kicked down from my rides.

I'll see what my travel partner is up for. It shouldn't be too hard to take it on the way back to cali. I've never been over there so it'd be pretty sweet to see.

Dude hitchhiking in Oregon is such a easy way to get around. The i5 is a very fast highway for rides but you have to position yourself in a good pull out kn the highway itself. Walk the interstate ... Good kick downs and people. The Astoria to Florence route of 101 I have had trouble with as well as south of coos bay to gold beach. I can't tell you why but I spent last summer on the 101 and it was hard. But the intercity transit is 2$ to get to almost every city on the route south if you want to take that route and don't mind a few pushes through the smaller towns. My personal favorites are port orford bandon and Florence. Good luck and smile your on Oregon.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
