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 love this site and community always, good vibes to all !
