Posted:I might end up hitch kikeng to Houston,Tx. from Kansas City,Mo.. the route i will take is I-35 south to I-20 east to I-45 south. If anyone along this route could help me with a righ be it 10 feet or to the next town it will be most appreciated. right now this is only a thought swirling around the inside of my head and i know the dangers of hitch hikeing. I have been doing it since i was 16. If you can help thank you and god bless you!

Posted:Any NZ is a lot safer than the US for hitching! On the opposite side of the hitching coin you've also got to be really quick at judging character by look before stopping to pick up hitchers. I've built up some really good instincts along the way. I can spot a cute European girl 3 miles away wink

Posted:I wouldn't hitch hike if I were you it is very dangerous. Plus just recently there is suspicion of a seriel killer roaming the states in a big rig. A girl from OKC was murdered and found in TX.



Serial Killer



Even though he seems to be targeting prostitutes that doesn't mean he could break his cycle or something. I would be EXTREMELY CAREFUL AND CAUTIOUS. I would hate to find out that a fellow HoPper was harmed in any way. ubbcrying



If you do choose to hitch hike do take care and try to find people you know who are willing to lend you a ride peace hug

Posted:My brother hitch hiked from Seattle to Ohio or thereabouts. And it was rough. Easier for boys than for girls, I think. Aside from spending a few nights on the side of the highway he was ok. Still...not fun sleeping on the highway.

Be safe. Keep your cell phone charged. hug

Posted:Thiers a hippie fellow that travels through my town when hes in the northeast andhes been hitchiking the country for about three years now From hitchiking hes pretty much fine except hes really tripped, burnt, and w/e elsed out but i guess if you would want to hitchike your life away That might be the way to go. But defiantly i think its easier for guys alot of people from my town seem to hitchike away from here but they always end up back. I'e only hitchiked once and that was home form a concert only 3 hrs away from my town so i don't know that much about5 it juss felt like puttin in my two cents smile

It is alot easier for boys to hitch, I thumb to work every day. ubbtickled What I would suggest is a bit of Mace on a key chain. wink Its always a good idea to have when hitching rides long distance anyway, and its not a knife, or a gun where you could get yourself into trouble. eek Its a good idea to have a Cell as well.
Good luck my friend.

Posted:I wouldn't say it's easier for boys to hitch. I've had a lot more trouble getting lifts than a lot of women I've met along the way rolleyes. I would say it's safer if you're male, not easier; "safer" being a relative term, hitching is never a particularly safe way of getting around. Can be fun, though. Something to do with the mentality of someone who would pick up a hitcher, they tend to be (from my experience) really nice, if occasionally slightly crazy, people ubblol.

If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Posted:Shame you had to do that VT, and no one here could give you a lift. I
f I was driving through I'd have picked you up. I like picking up hitchers, you always end up having a good ole chat, maybe a smoke, share some stories, have a laugh and away you go. Good way to pass the time on a long boring journey and you get an enourmous sense of well being after helping someone cover what would be a great distance on foot.

Enjoy Houston VT!! wave
