Cloverdale is the next town after, no bus after that(hard spot to hitch), but there is a homeless shelter that will hook you up with a ticket out of it($16 other wise)to ukiaka..... hehe... 4 bucks from ukikia to Fort Bragg, cool glass beach, kick ass bar. wasnt too hard to hitch from there.

I always just used the on-ramp by the bus stop / mall. From where you get dropped (main bus plaza) in Santa Rosa you can take the bus to willits, and from there its easy hitching right on the 101.

Thanks folks!
I actually live near Ukiah, it's about $27 bucks to take public transport from SF.
So trying to figure best spots to hitch out of San Francisco & Santa Rosa.
Hitching down is breeze, it's getting out of the city that is the problemo..............

Any of you ever hitched North on the 101 out of San Francisco ???

Yup. literally 100's of times. 101 and Francisco st. Ive never waited more than half an hour. usually get a ride to San Rafael within minutes. Then i usually just take the bus to Santa Rosa. Then from SR the 60 on to cloverdale. That exit by the shell station in Cloverdale has never treated me wrong.

between here and there
i've hitched north out of sr a few times, due to my brother living there. Either the College ave onramp, or the Steele Lane onramp, both worked for me within an hour.
