well, its hard to travel with more than 3 people. the group ends up seperated alot. So i would look for one social traveler who has basic experience that is willing to take on two newbies. My advise is to read as much as you can on this site before traveling with anyone. NO ONE will baby sit you or take care of you. It's also not about showing you the ropes. Its someone willing to let you follow them around and then you learn from observing him. Observation will teach you everything you need to know, how to spange, busk, hitchhike, fly a sign, and how to respect other people and their bounderies.

A huge thing on the road is respect and knowing how to keep your mouth shut when you dont know what your talking about or when its non of your business. here's a big tip, even if you dont like someone dont make them an enemy. Most people you meet on the road you will see again so keep it neutral or friendly. Oh, and allways be calm and respectful to cops and locals even if they hate you, you never know what kind of town your in and it may be the one place you dont want to irritate someone, it tends to get your whole crew in trouble.

Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]

The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL MY FELLOW TRAVELERS: Please stop telling me about your bowel movements, thank you.
Beautiful couple days for the Atlantic Coast Line
Ah, nothing beats a night’s rest in the desert of New Mexico. I saw an amazing view of Albuquerque last night. Now I gotta finish packing up the tent and get on with hitchhiking to Texas!
Got a ride all the way to Portland! Will be there a few days, til Sunday at least.
Walking to North Bend. Didn’t seem to be any good hitch spots in Coos Bay.
