E298 – Mariana Goes Beach Camping

Mariana Mo from Thursday Night Ride and other Portland bike scene events took a backpacking trip to the beach after finishing college, and camped out for about three months living the good life, thinking deep thoughts and meeting great people.  We ask what it takes to have such a compelling adventure!

Also: Brock bicycle camped over the weekend again & Aaron went to Filmed By Bike.
