Hey everyone!! New to the forums but been lurking the past couple years. Been travelling on and off the east coast atm and now I'm stranded in the Boston area. And many cities in mass seem to be against flying signs and haven't had much luck hitching in the area yet. Searched the forums before, but trying to see if anyone has hitched or travelled this area before and has any advice? Or spots that are better than others? Without going to western mass which seems to be easiest but hard to get to when broke. And my husband has an injury that prevents him from freight hopping, which seems to be the to go route. Trying to get to florida. Anywhoo, nice to meet all of you! Any ideas is appreciated:)

loads of low cost bus companies to head to the big cities south
yeah it's been a while, but i remember taking china town buses from boston to nyc for like $15 and nyc to philly for $25. i even remember a rumor that there was a chinatown bus from nyc all the way to georgia for like $90, but then you're starting to look at greyhound prices. personally, i'd just take the bus from boston to philly and hop a train out of there going south to florida.

Check out Megabus! Or take local public transit to the outer suburbs and hitch an on ramp. Hitchwiki.org has recommended hitching spots and other hitching info. If it's real cold out, you can try asking people at gas stations for rides. Good luck, stay warm

There are two traveler schools of thought: grab the pack and go, and extensive preparatory research....You can guess which one I'm buried in, at the moment....

Welcome!!!!
So I had a bunch of free Metrolink tickets, so yesterday first I took Coaster from San Diego to Oceanside, then used them to go all the way from Oceanside to Simi Valley (covering 150 miles in a day). I decided to stay with my SO again a couple of days as I came down pretty sick with cold and also need to buy some gear for the record breaking cold in CA. Soon enough I’ll head to Ventura and hitch from there!
Just over a month and a half until I plan to hit the road here in New Zealand. Figuring out what I need to store and what I need to sell. Anyone thats currently travelling got an Instagram? Looking to follow some fellow misfits in the mean time!
