    Me, Too!

    I started hitchhiking in 1972 when I was 13. Me and my best friend used to hitch hike all over. i even hitchhiked over 900 miles 1 way by myself when I was 24. But one night, in about 1983, I saw a documentary called "Murder, No Apparent Motive". It profilled serial killers...

    I was in Seymour, Missouri hitchhiking across

    US 60 on a Sunday morning and a preacher picked me up. His church was halfway to Mansfield. He let me out there and told me that if I was still around in an hour, I should come in for the service. An hour later I was still there so I went on in. I had only been...

    I was walking along a lonely highway towards

    Crater Lake, Oregon with forty pounds of backpack on my back, an empty stomach, and a clear mind alternating between thoughts of finding something to eat and no thought at all. Crater Lake is an exploded mountain that was more than 30,000 feet tall. At a third of that height now...

    Hitchhiker

    When I was young, I used to hitchhike. Sometimes it was just within town, but many were the times I hitchhiked across the Midwest and The West. From Illinois to southern California. From northern California to southern California.

    It started with a breakup

    as these things often do. There was a fast too and I was on the fourth day of it before I realized that I needed to escape. So I packed a backpack, asked a neighbor for a ride to the edge of the city, and hitchhiked away. I had my dog with me and was thrilled that she pointed...

    Till This Incident

    I was hitchhiking home after a Metallica concert when a guy picked me up. I was about half-way home when the guy asked me if I wanted a beer and I said sure. He pulled into a gas station and gave me some money to go in. I told him I didn't have an ID, but tried it anyway and sure...

    I was hitchhiking in Yellowstone National Park

    and caught a ride with a park ranger. Within a few miles we came up on a bear jam. The ranger drove us past all the cars to fifty feet from a huge grizzly. It was grazing beside the road and looked quite peaceful. After a bit, it got up and strutted down the center of the road...

    I hitchhiked for five years in the eighties

    living entirely on faith. I woke up and counted my blessings every day. I expressed my gratitude in song and never asked for anything (except a ride). I never went hungry. The universe is conspiring to shower us with blessings but you have to let go of a lot to find the truth of...

    Parents Encouraged Me to Hitchhike

    This was about 25 years ago now. I guess in those days it was relatively safe. We had moved from the city into a rural area. My mother doesn't drive and dad was not really keen on driving us anywhere. We had to walk 20 mins to the main road where the bus to town came by...

    I Can't Believe I Use to Hitchhike

    I look back now and it scares the h*** out of me. To think I was only 15 when I ran away from home. I went places I never should of gone. Things happened that never should of been done. At one time it was considered "hip" . Now it's considered stupid.

    I Used To Hitchhike!

      What makes HitchHiking different these days?   FEAR!   In the 1960's and into the 70's,  hitchhiking was commonplace.   The Good Samaritan concept was accepted and employed.  One never felt scared thumbing a ride anywhere...

    I am not the person I used to be, in every aspect this could be taken. Re-read and think, then breath and feel the relief of no longer being that person you used to be.
