Hey everyone!
I Just made an account, although I have been lurking here for a while. I'm Canadian, just finished my undergraduate studies and I decided that I will hitchhike from Seattle to Mexico this coming June. I will be hitchhiking the entire way and maybe hopping a freight. I will also be camping most nights. I guess its quite early to ask, but if anyone would like to join me during any part of my travels, send me a pm! I will probably be on the road for 6 months and I will mainly stick to the 101 or 1.

101 or 1 will be a breeze in summer time. There is a wealth of information about hitching that route on here.

Welcome.

Also, not going to see any freight going that route. All tracks are inland.

You will have a blast, and see the BEST areas in the country. Done it plenty of times myself. West coast life. Good luck

Just to clarify a tiny bit.. You'll find freight trains along the 101/1 from San Jose on down. They're just not really a thing north of SF on the coast, unfortunately. They're not as abundant as they are inland but there's a few.
