How easy would say going to a truck stop and asking for a ride to California obviously if they're going in that direction, now this might be the kicker with 2 small well behaved dogs and a great traveling cat in carrier and my 2 suitcases + blanket and pillow I'm native Californian I'm 55 blonde hair green eyes how likely that I would get a ride hopefully without trying for happy endings? I need feed back cause I'm not getting any responses for ride share hitch a ride and I'm really tired of sleeping outside with the rain

Best thing to do is maybe buy a cb radio a cheap or get near a radio on channel 19 and say what you are trying to do. I see women standing around from time to time and drivers go up talk to talk to them shortly after they hop in.

make sure you have a nice big sign to make it clear where your going. shouldn't be too hard I'm sure. might want to multitask Craigslist also.

Texas also tends to be Bible Town... So, neat appearance - to best of your ability... Put on a (your, whichever) Cross - make sure it's visible! Brush out (groom) the dogs... (aka, make the kids presentable :) ) ... Then in addition to a sign (LARGE CLEAR LETTERS - your destination, specific. Don't say Sacramento if you're really aiming for Stockton) ... In addition - you might want to try holding/reading a Bible.
.... Wouldn't be very christian to leave you out there alone like that.... Not so much banking on a Trucker, as some "good christian soul" to take pity on you & either A. drive you damn near home, themself, or, B. take up a collection in your name to finance you home.
.... or, ofcourse, C. anyone willing to give you a lift down the road.

Can't hurt to try... :) Goodluck!

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
    $85.75 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
    $85.75 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.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
