Absolutely ******* yes for all the above reasons. You ready to bet your life. Ask all the parents that has lost their children while they were hitchhiking.
I would never risk it. Too many young women disappear to never be seen again or are found dead.
I done it across Europe in my younger days. I must admit I had a fantastic time.<br />
That being said I think these days the world has more freaks than it had back then.
I was 12 to 13 when I done it
My brother used to hitchhike and he had some scary stories about people, although he survived. He lived out west in the states and apparently it is more common out there (have no idea if it is legal in any state in America). Where I live, I have only seen one person hitchhiking in recent times. As a woman, I would be scared to try it.
probably safer nowadays that eveyone has cell phones in case of emergency
Your friends dumb *****.
