Hey!

I'm a genderfluid femme looking for some advice from other femmes/women on hitching alone! Any rules of thumb? I've hitched so far twice and out of sheer luck both times i got picked up by middle aged women who had histories hitching..

I'm more of a fag ig, but mostly the usual stuff, ask them where they're headed first, keep your pack with you, sharp in your pocket, dont be afraid to turn down rides if they give you a bad vibe, dont hitch at night. Stay safe out there

trans-femme. usual things, having a knife of something of the sort in view can help.

Honestly, I would have my phone visible and talk out loud to where they could hear me describe the make model n license of the vehicle and the person. Even if the phone wasn’t working. If they got weird, I would pass. If I got a weird vibe, pass. Always hand my hand on my knife/pepper spray ready regardless. Stay safe.

Trans femme here. I have a tendency to dress in a way to make others perceive me as more masculine when I hitch, and I end up looking as such anyway due to lack of shaving my face. I wear my knife on my right hip, and keep it visible, and within easy access. Trust the fuck out of your gut!

Cis woman here, what I've began doing is asking people if i can take a picture of their plate to send it to my friend (i send it along with the where from and where to info). If they say no ill pass.
It's good because if you disappear your friend will know where you were last + the driver knows that somewhere you have a friend who knows so if they had bad intentions they won't pick you up
I'm pretty sure that trick saved my ass one time.
Stay safe and have fun !

have your phone charged. try and snap a photo of the license plate before you get in if you can. ALWAYS keep a knife on your hip. if a man keeps insisting he get you a shower they’re usually trying to sleep with you— that’s a weird one but it’s proved true enough, sometimes being dirty is a good defense against unwanted advances. don’t hitchhike at night! if you’re by yourself i suggest that you try and scout out a camp before it gets dark— try and find somewhere hidden, but not so far out and isolated that you wouldn’t be able to get help pretty quickly should you need it. if something seems weird, trust your instincts, stay calm, and ask nicely to be dropped off as soon as possible. be wary of drinks or anything open that you haven’t had an eye on from the time it was purchased. don’t be so scared you’re going to come across as rude that you let yourself waltz into a trap— if someone is a safe person, they’re probably not going to take it personally if you’re looking out for your own safety.

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.
