Anyone have experience hitching between smaller towns in upstate ny (wassaic / albany) to western mass (pittsfield / the berkshires / northhampton)? I gotta hitch cuz the peterpan bus is too expensive. I heard the east coast is a bit tougher for hitching but am wondering if anyones experience differs. info on hitching or cheap transit around there would really be appreciated. Thanks!
