Looking for the best hitch spots around west palm. South of Tampa is shit for catching rides, and I have the ability to get up to W. Palm from monroe county. Haven't hitched the east side of Florida. Any suggestions? I hear Mexico beach area has work and good spots for hitting the road
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

If u have a ride to the west palm area, ur prob gonna wanna go to lake worth bc it's the only place I know in that area where ppl are down to earth/poor. West Palm ppl ain't gonna pick up. And sadly hitching is shit in FL period imo.

Florida does suck when it comes to hitching. I hitched from Ocala to Panama City last winter and made it but usually have to wait like 5 hrs on average for a ride. It was especially tough in the Panama City area. Mostly rednecks and not the type to pick you up. I'd be careful around Panama City. The cops were atrocious and downtown was full of crazy shit. I haven't tried hitching the east coast. Let us know how it goes.

First of all stay out of lake worth. Second of all where are you going? 3rd of all why are you going? Last but not least you will get where you need to be Hopefully but definitely where you put yourself.

alot of people here haven't done east coast hitching. I've done Maine to Miami many times 95 85 1. Much different than the 5n1 on west coast, or the 40 66 15 25 35. Ask me about east coast hitching.

  1. Paying the Bills

    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
    $10.00 of $75.00
    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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $10.00 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
    $10.00 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.
