Used to ride to work with a friend who liked to drink. Never failed after work we had to be at the bar.One night I started walking for 6 miles before my girlfriend came and picked me up. Drove myself from that point on.

I tried to but I must be too big and scary- nobody stopped. God help anyone that needs a ride when I drive past- I'm not stopping.

I used to hitchhike nationwide and trans Canada for the adventure. Never locally. I always had a car from age 16 yet would go on hitching "vacations".
