I-95 (1 Viewer)


Nov 16, 2010
Planning on hitching up the east coast to Maine sometime mid-spring. I-95 seems to the be most straight forward route. Some folks I know have warned about the hassles of hitching the NE via this route. Checked state laws pertaining to hitching and outside of Penn and NJ, there doesn't seem to be any real legal issues. Anyone have experience with this route or suggestions? Thanks.

I just went hitching for the first time. I went down I-95 and couldn't get anywhere going south but I got two of the best rides I could imagine all the way back to NY from south of Richmond.

I 95 can suck between DC and boston since its so crowded. but if your lookin to actually see new england and the outdoors, i hitched up I81 through PA then to 84 and other varous roads into vermont and NH into maine and it was buetiful with tons of really nice people. and once in maine if you go farther north than portland route 1 is awsome goin up the coast through all the harbors and fishing towns.

Excellent. Thank you very much for the info. Most of the reason for aiming towards Maine was the wilderness aspect, I-95 seemed the most direct route. So now I have some other options.

    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
    $45.00 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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    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

    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.
