    Hitching from Laramie to Portland

    I plan on going about this way in June and I was wondering if this would be doable for a first time hitchhiker. I would plan on stopping in SLC, and Boise before going to Portland. I've also heard the legal status of hitchhiking isn't good especially in Boise. What did you experience? Thanks!

    Decisions: Seasonal work for international travel money or attempt to travel on the cheap end

    I'm debating whether or not I should do seasonal work so I can travel this summer. The only con to that is I won't get much hitchhiking experience (I guess I could hitch there but that's not what I really want.) I really want to attempt to hitchhike because I've put it off for so long and I just...

    Photos One Month Across 20 States

    I pulled my pack out of the back and slammed the door shut. The white Nissan slowly wheeled away around the bend and out of sight, and I was now officially alone. I promptly made my way through a hole in the fence, through the trees and out into the clear to reveal the glorious three track...
