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,
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:


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 :)

Seems the creators are jumping ship to a more potentially marketable hence commercialized endeavor with Trustroots project. In all, if Trustroots is legit (highly questionable) then it could be an amazing resource. Never hitched anywhere and cant see myself hitching a ride anywhere. Im a slave to my bicycle.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!

Beautiful day to be alive and listen to the birds chirp, remembering to be grateful for what we have and not worry about what we have not.
Healthy in PDX. Back here after years to keep track of those bugging out and to check in on those still on the road.
