I haven't hitched this route and was wondering if it could be done in a day and a half or if the rides are pretty slow. Thank youu!!

In my experience (years ago..but I doubt its changed) hitchhiking out of Redding is fairly tough. Also in California it's illegal to walk or be on the highway so it makes it harder.

My advice would be to hit the exit at the far north end of town and have a sign saying Oregon. I would turn down anyone offering a ride still in California. Once you hit Oregon you can be on the highway and it becomes much easier. Especially around the Ashland area.

Good luck

Your welcome. One of the last times I hitched that area it was July.. 107 degrees in Redding and there was a gaggle of homebum looking old men with a ridiculous amount of gear that sat on the exit for 3 and a half days. First thier sign said "Portland.. Then they switched it to "the North Pole ".. Then " Iraq" apparently they got a ride to Iraq 😆

Redding is hard to get out of, I have always had an easier time on the 101. Better weather in the summer and more hippies. But it is a little out of the way.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 of $50.00
    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
    $15.00 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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 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
    $15.00 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.

Three years of loving and caring, down the backed up toilet.
I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
