Florida sucks but Tennessee was the worst miles of road with nothing on it and nobody wanted to stop luckily for me i know how to hop trainsDefinitely true! I’ve hiked from Georgia to Maine & from Mexico to Canada twice via the Pacific Crest & Rockies...no State was as difficult as Florida when it came to hitchhiking.
99% of folks don’t even know about the Florida Trail & they think anyone hitch hiking is a tweaker or a criminal. You add in all the transplants and tourists, they will never help you. The only people who would give me hitches, were younger workers who sympathized with my plight & happened to be on the way home from work.
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.
