I don't know if anything like this has been suggested on here before, but a guy I know travels all around our State of Minnesota for FREE by using Casino Buses!

Most of our Native American Owned gambling casinos offer FREE bus service to their establishments. My buddy simply hops on their charter bus, rides out to the casino, then waits for the bus going back to the destination he's headed to. He claims he's covered almost our entire State for free this way.

I found a web site that lists all the casinos in Minnesota and their locations, along with bus schedule information:

You'll need to scroll down the page on the above link to find the casino listings.

I know the one in the Metro STL area will pick you up at the airport (Lambert) & deposit you at the St Charles landing- a great way to get to STC County when MetroStink won't take ya there....

My buddy does it from the Twin Cities, so he has lots of casinos to choose from. He just picks the one that has other connections close to his destination. If someone were to live in say one of the out skirts towns or smaller cities around the State, they may have to ride to the nearest casino, then take a bus to the Twin Cities, use some other means to get around the Twin Cities, then catch a different casino's bus back out to the area they wish to end up at.

Slow, but FREE!

Happy seed day, sucka!
Heading back out again today. Gonna millaround the Rockies for another five days and then I’m headed east towards Chicago!
Hitching out of Coos Bay today. Goal is to get up to Newport, switch over to the I-5, then up to Portland by the day’s end.
Wow its been two years since i posted I've lived in a few cities since, but I'm living in santa fe now.
I am sorry for not updating! I ended up getting back on the road for REAL, leaving downtown LA via a bus to Barstow Friday night. Since then I have hitchhiked 5 rides, explored Flagstaff AZ, and am now near Albuquerque, NM. I’ve already learned so fucking much, made countless memories, met other tramps, ridden in a truck bed on the highway, and just been fucking blessed by the Universe.
Spending the night in Coos Bay. Hoping to be in Portland.
Just had 3 wisdom teeth pulled, my mouth should stop bitching all the damn time now... Pain meds? What're those
