Hitch-hiking Alaska

I'm looking for a person to travel with hitch hiking or any advice for hitching Alaska. Currently situated in Anchorage looking to either travel to Girdwood or Seward first (or anywhere you can suggest too). I have my own supplies and whatnot and travel with medical supplies. I can give you further contact methods if wanted, doesn't really matter who you are as long as you're honest.

My advice is to take a bus or hoof it towards the outer city limits of Skankorage (just like in any big city) before sticking the thumb out. I've waited a while for a ride when hitching out from within the city. Alaska's the easiest place I've hitchiked other than northern Cali.

Alaska is easy hitching get to the outskirts of anchorage on 1 and you will get picked for hole ride to Seward I do it every salmon season I work at Icicle plant there as a Machine operator/Mech. Seward has a abandoned orphanage you can squat but BE STEALTH, the neighbors see you they will call 6 up.

Spent the night in Roseburg. Gonna be in Ashland by 1. Hang for a bit, keep going south.
Holy crap. I hit 10k subscribers on YouTube, and finished building a new deck! I'll be doing a video shoot today, and tomorrow I'm going to the city to get my prosthetic leg worked on, afterward I'll be eating fancy food and drinking fine booze- possibly with a date. Jeez, what a week!
Hitching out of Roseburg. The last few days have been slower than I like but that’s part of the game.
So happy to be here. The only person who thinks like me that I know in real life is my ex gf... haha we still talk but argh I need more like minded souls!

Are you a stoolie?
This week:
Roommate: "Didn't you have second thoughts when you saw that she had "trouble" tattooed on her arm? "
Me: "Well, no..."
Roommate: "How about when she said the cops were after her?!"
Me: "Well, you know...no...."
I made it all the way to Dallas! I spent my weekend in a motel for Easter, and had a pretty good time.
So I found this nice, wooded park in a safe suburb of Dallas, right? Well there’s a lot of what might be poison ivy. Okay, so I find that I’m near a bridge with a small creek near it.

Then the Hobo Gods decided my string of very good luck needed Thanos-style balance. I get my sleeping bag out, and that little shit rolls down the hill, into the river, and drifts away forever. RIP

I would bow and shield my eyes in the presence of that beard's brilliance...
