From the information I've been privy to, hotels are more likely going to be used to quarantine people who pop positive, the homeless are pretty much being disregarded as far as I can tell. Couple people I know involved with shelters are saying there is no protective equipment at all so they're basically just virus incubation chambers. I would have serious reservations about going anywhere near one.Govts May start putting ppl up in hotels which are all empty now
I remember getting stuck and spending ages in Amarillo back in late 2011. I almost resorted to train hopping (with no knowledge or experience AT ALL) because there was a yard in sight. A truck stopped right before I broke down. I would have probably killed my dumb ass if I tried.I mean, I'm sure the plague ain't helping, but that's always been my experience in Texas. Either you get a ride in a half hr or it takes 3 days.
I hope you see this. I'm not posting in that other thread. In fact, a mod should delete it.I’m getting ready to hit the road and I wanna ask everyone how things are playing out, I have a feeling people are having even more of a hard time wanting to pick up a “stranger” I had the opportunity to pick up a really nice guy outside of Phoenix coming from up north. He was surprised I even stopped... he began to tell me that he was harassed by the local police even more then normal, he emphasize that the police are looking for hitchhikers even more then normal.. has anyone had the same experience?
Thanks for asking this. Was wondering myself.Sitting at a truck stop (i have a ride, not hitchhiking) and wondering how hitchhikers are faring with all the quarantine bullshit. Seems like a lot of people are extra nice to me with my pack, but also id imagine people dont want anybody in the car with them.
Walk. I get rides way quicker when I'm actually walking the side of the road.I've been trying to hitch north outa of nyc. No luck. I even took the metro north a couple stops up to get away from the city. And nothing. Can only stand on the off ramp for so long till u gotta go back to flying for beer/food money.
