So I'm on my first long term road trip since joining the site. We went through all of northern Cali, and It was my first time hitching. A lot of really cool people and experiences, but there was one thing that stuck out to me:

how obsolete most of the info on Hitchwiki is,
and
how perfectly stp members are positioned to edit the wiki with more accurate information.


Look how many of the regions for california are in red, meaning no info at all:

http://hitchwiki.org/en/California

Anyway, I felt like updating the wiki with some of the stuff I learned about Mendocino and Lake Counties while I was up there.

Thought I'd try to see if anyone knows good hitch spots, or tips, or whatever for the places they know best.

:) thanks!

i agree that more people should take the time to add info to that site, i'm a very busy person, but i'd like to add some stuff when i have time, as they're doing the whole wiki thing much better than we could.

I upddate whenever I feel I've got something of value to add. It's true there's a wealth of untapped knowledge out there which has yet to be added to the site.
Their map function has so much potential, too.

I haven't had time to sit and update anything man. I feel you on that Matt. Just got a job, so I'm crashing on a couch and saving up for better gear. Probably sit down and edit the wiki before my next trip north. :) thanks for helping guys :)

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.
