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

Monthly Goals

  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
    $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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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

    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.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
