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".

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.
