Hitchhiked 690 miles from Fayetteville N.C. to Buffalo, N.Y. when I was 21 year's old and in the service. If I remember correctly it took me 2 hours longer than when I drove the distance.

Today, no one surely would pick me up. Those were the good ole days...1961.

35 years ago I did.

Funny I recently saw someone hitchhiking. I probably haven't seen someone doing it in years.

I've been able to drive since about 12 years old, an AC tractor, a Buick, a Ford A model, Ford F-250, all with STD trannies/clutches.

Only once did I hike, then hitched a ride from a known friend that was passing by. My Chev. broke a tie-rod a mile.5 or so from home.

In a lifetime of driving myself, I have only picked up only less than 5 persons that were hitching for a free ride, one wanted to pay but I refused. One/the first, was a young ARMY Soldier hitch hiking close to Cinci. OH. The others were known local persons with a problem, or a few runs for errands(many)......

Never any long distant transports except by train with a legal ticket.
