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

Florida and Kansas: Florida won't let you walk on its interstates, and Kansas won't let you walk on the interstate, state why, or county road period. it took me over a week of walking on us 1 from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach, not a single ride. I was stranded in Salina, KS for over two weeks until a school bus full of rainbows gave me a ride out of a KOA campground to Boulder, those "amoral hippies" showed me more kindness than any of those good country folk.

All who say all those states.. probably hav never hitched in new Jersey!!

True but part of that is due to the fact that public transportation goes everywhere, so it looks extremely out of the ordinary to hitchhike there. My ignorant ass hitchhiked through New York City twice before I figured out how to ride public transportation. They don't have that where I'm from.

Texas...especially along I-10. I was stuck at the Flying J on the east side of San Antonio for 4 days, and the only place I could get a ride to going remotely west was Eagle Pass. Needless to say if you don't speak spanish in that border town, you're pretty much fucked....took me 5 days to get a ride outta there...wound up going to Brookshire...a little bit west of Houston....3 days there, and someone hooked me up with a bus ticket to El Paso....tho I was told they'd pay for a ticket anywhere I wanted to go....I should've gone for Santa Cruz, but now I'm glad I didn't. 3 days in Hell Paso at the Flying J by the New Mexico state line. Also the I-10 corridor across NM and AZ is a royal bitch. Been here in Ripon, Cali for 2 days now...no luck yet...hopefully I'll get out in the morning.

Goal

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.
