Do your self a favor and hop on a mega bus..dont hitch there its hell.. you can get tickets from south florida to Atlanta and mobile al for 10 to 15 dollars if u buy a little in advance.. my last time getting out of her i paided 25 dollars for a mega bus ticket to Alabama from Fort Lauderdale.. a small price to pay to get out of that shithole to somewhere hitchable

    http://lebus.com/pickup-locations/....ive been visiting SLC since 85. ive only hitched there a few times. The link i left will help to get to wendover Nev. 22.00. Free drink, buffet, 7dollar freeplay. ive never had an issue in wendover and the rides have always came fast, going west or east. We used to catch out in SLC as the trains slows to go around corner, they put fence up but ive still caught out on corner. It seems the newer generation is catching out of Ogden for some reason. i think because the train stops in Ogden. If your going east into wyoming they have had a no tolerance hitchhike policy that was changed in court in i think 2013 but the cops dont like change, stand your ground, mayb move to grass...i try very hard not to hh Utah.

    The panhandle of Oklahoma was probably my worst experience, mostly cow trucks and not a lot of traffic flow around there, really pretty much most of the state i had a hard time but the pan handle part was the absolute worst.

    Nebraska was the toughest for me to get rides in.

    Louisiana was the worst as far as the experience but I got rides

    Southern idaho was pretty bad. we got a ride from yellowstone to some small town in south idaho. it was a sunday and very mormon so there were no stores open to fill up water or get food, even though we had some cash. after using our brains a bit, we realized that the mormon church was the only place to get h2O. the minister was friendly and gave us a bunch of water bottles. we walked down the road a bit and tried to hitch for about 12 hours. no one stopped for us until the evening when the mormon minister pulled up and gave us some home made bread and elk meat. he said that no one in the town drives any distance and since it wasnt on a major highway we might not have much luck. we called it a night and slept in a park, got chased by sprinklers a few times. in the morning we met an old guy heading to idaho falls in the opposite direction we were heading. we took the ride anyway and tried our luck there. we tried to hitch out of idaho falls for a while, no luck. we ran into some jugallos who have been stuck trying to hitch out for 4 days. we caved in eventually and took the salt lake express to nampa and hitched to oregon pretty easilly from there

    Oklahoma! Super unfriendly. The second we got over the border to Texas, people were much friendlier!
