If you're still near Florida around the end of May I'll be heading north. Unless I catch a ride on the ride boards before then.

Just let me know, I prefer to avoid busses and such haha florida is just so hard to hitch from

The police are my only concern. Florida is probably the hardest state on hitch hikers. I've been considering catching the mega bus or greyhound into Georgia then going from there.

Get to the east coast and you should be able to get a ride on i95 north if you come up to Jacksonville you can catch a ride out west from i10 or continue north on i95. Try sitting on one of the on/off ramps near a city is your best bet. Just make sure NOT to have a sign asking for money/food while in Florida or the cops will be on you like flies on shit.

the most obvious advice as a somewhat experienced traveler is to try to get towards st Augustine which is pretty chill. you can take the bus to jax from there. you'll also find a lot of cool people in savannah and Charleston. the reality of the area that your in is that the cops suck varying more on which city your in and not so much what state.

Like Gaucho said just get to know the area. I would ask around about a specific place ahead of time before you go there so you'll have an idea of what it's like.

I always advise extra caution in Florida because there are a lot of counties who are tired of dealing with the masses of tramps migrating there every winter so they adopted ultra tough policies for dealing with the homeless. They want to look for an excuse to throw you in jail and make your experience there so miserable you'll never come back.

Also just avoid Myrtle Beach, SC at all cost. It's full of gangs and cops who are on a mission to throw you in jail if you even look like you're a tramp.

@Gaucho Deluxe I was actually thinking of heading to Savannah first then starting from there. It's pretty laid back and has a nice tourist area. I haven't been to St. Augustine in a while but last time I was there the city was cracking down on pan handling and trying to get the tramps and hobos out of the city.

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$90.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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.
