So my experiences in long distance hitching with strangers isnt that long yet (but my how thats rapidly changing). Either or ive been told kansas is one of the hardest places to get through and its almost worth going north to nebraska. Any input advice stories or side effects are welcome. I think this should be a good thread to add to the bunch.

Don't let Cali Hwy Patrol catch you walking the interstate. I always had hard times going thru Chicago so much that I found a way to avoid it all together. I just got harassed by Nebraska highway patrol for being broke down on the side on the interstate so I can easily see them harassing hitchhikers too.

Iowa ain't too bad as long as you stick to the highways. the interstates in iowa suck but if hitch from a good Exit you can get a ride the whole way across. Iowa is shitty but i don't believe it's the shittiest.
Texas sucks ass to hitch through, but i've only done that once and i was with 2 other guys... it was slow going.
my least favorite state to hitch through would be Alabama

  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
    $60.00 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 this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 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
    $60.00 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.
