As an 18 year old kid, I hiked from Oakland CA to Baltimore MD. Took 6 days and 28 rides for the 3,000 mile jaunt. No. I wouldn't recommend anyone try to replicate it.

When I was a teen we used to hitch rides and pick up certain hitch hikers if they looked ok , BUT that was in the 70's! I would never hitch now, or pick up hitchers.

During the summer of '72 I regularly hitched rides on the weekend during a post college internship a Kodak labs in Rochester, NY. Bus service was infrequent to say the least.

Me too when I was in my teens.
Now in this day and age I do not hitch hike nor do I stop for hitch hikers.
