Well that's one way to get a ride...

So I've been planning a hitch hiking trip from my current location to a small surfer/hippy town about 320 km north of here. As usual I was trying to earn a couple extra bucks for the trip, so when a buddy mentioned that he needed a few tabs of acid, i put my feelers out, and found some really good stuff, that I could get and sell to my buddy and turn a $20 profit while still giving him a good deal. When I met with my acid guy(an old school hippy we will call Grasshopper) he mentioned that me buying the acid from him was great because he is leaving town in 4 days and needs to make a few bucks, I mentioned that I'm leaving town the same day, and asked where he was going......wouldn't you know it, he was going to the same surfer/hippy town as I am going to hitch to! At which point he right away offered to give me a ride, and I offered to help out with gas money and weed. As we talked more, it got even wilder, because we are both going to the same anarcho/hippy commune in the damn town! so in 4 days I hit the road with Grasshopper. Stay tuned for the story in the coming weeks.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
