My fastest hitchin trip ever (1 Viewer)


Sep 25, 2008
London, United Kingdom
From London(UK) to Vilnius(LT), 7 Countries,1300miles/2100km, 26hrs, 3 cars, 1 truck, 150eur kickdown.

I started at 1AM in London, somewhat 20mins later a car stoped... what do you know it goes directly to Maastricht(NL). The driver was an ex-squatter, bought me beer and cigs, we had a lovely conversation. He let me off in a parking. 20minutes and 2 cigs later i asked for a lift a swiss couple who only spoke german. They had about half a kilo of cocaine and weed, we were going ~300km/h (200mph), stopping at every parking/petrol station on the way, snorting coke in toilets and smoking spliffs. They dropped me of near Berlin central train station. I rode a train in a toilet to Poland boarder, crossed it on foot and 2 hours later got a lift in a car with Dutch license plates but Lithuanian driver. He bought me lunch and let me off near Kaunas(LT) around 60miles from my home. Not a minute passed and first truck stopped. Direct ride home.

    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
    $90.00 of $100.00
    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
    $90.00 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.
