I'm thinking a truck stop.

Trying to get to Oklahoma, but considering oregon first for my take off point south, and then east. Haven't ruled out I-90 to idaho though.

Anyone with experience hitching in this area? I'm pretty new. Yes, the danger yes, but whoa the desire, whoa. Mind overmatter, I'll be the master. Mind over matter, think!

There will be more traffic down 5,then on to 40, out 90,there will be hardly anyone,and maybe lots of snow. Of course you hit snow down 5 & on 40,but hopefully not as much,and more places to duck outta it !

what he said............ where east are you shootin for?..........i would definitely head south first....then go east..... and yeah, truckstops are always a good bet.......dont know how much youve traveled but any time before you get in someones car, ask if theyre going to drop you off somewhere where there is some sort of "civilization"....like gas stations..food stores...busy exit... etc......cuz it sux when a person tryin to help you out ends up dumpin you off at a desolate country exit with no food or water to be had for miles

Oklahoma, but california first.

All family locations, I'm a friendless, identityless, lonely bastard. Supposed to be laying dead in mexico somewhere by now, but plans were demolished by a number of issues.

Took a bus down to portland, will be catching a train outta here shortly, and then hitting the rest of the 5 down.

I just drove the I-40 from TN to Las Vegas and back in Dec. It was cold as hell then. Hit a snowstorm outside of ABQ, NM on the way back. Slow going for abit. But yea, I-40 stright into OK is your best shot. Lots of Pilots, Flying Js, Loves truckstops along that route. Good luck.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
