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.

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.
