Was my first hitch hiking experience... I started in NB which is supposedly the easiest place in canada to hitch out of .... I had great luck but made some mistakes that are already pointed out on this site. Looking at my cellphone at maps and smoking hurt my chances a couple of times, as well as poor choice for where to stand! I found if I was ever unsure, if I walked a bit farther down the on ramp, the "where to stand" becomes clear depending on shoulder size and where the on ramp ends. Once I got to NS I was so lucky to have the guidance of a fellow StP member who was experienced with the route I was taking and was able to help me learn along the way. I have now made it into halifax and will be familiarizing myself with city resources while planning a way to start heading west :D love this site and community always, good vibes to all !

awesome!! that sounds like a great trip so far. I never heard that NB was the easiest to hitch out of, I'll have to see for myself eventually.

just curious, how was the cross into NS? Assuming this was very recent, Nova Scotia has said they've closed their border to travellers into the province (unless just driving through). A friend of mine is hoping to head the other way next week, from Newfoundland.

Haha I only read about it and that source also said, by the same token, fredericton is impossible to hitch out of, which I cant contest to but will still try to avoid lol... You'll definitely have to let me know what you think, when you head this way 🤩

I hitched from NB to NL in 2016. Fredericton was impossible no matter which direction I tried. Ended up taking the bus to Saint John.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    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
    $35.00 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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 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
    $35.00 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.
