Have you ever hitchhiked before?
Once while in high school while with 2 other girls, I was peer pressured into it.
I'm not a murderer but I still can't get a ride
I have probably hitchhiked somewhere close to 40,000 miles in my lifetime. It was a common thing to do back in the 70's and 80's. I travelled the country multiple times, plus commuted back and forth from Oregon to California (college).
From the Isle of Skye to Durham.
I used to hitchhike at the age of 7-8 all the time. My brother and I would walk a country road picking-up bottles for their redemption value, hitchhike to the store to exchange them, then hitchhike to the next town where the fireworks stand was.
He was 8-9 at the time and I was 7-8 and we did this countless times during the summer months. What else were we to play with? Rocks? Oh yeah. We did play with rocks.
Then the bottle rocket wars would ensue. We also deconstructed fireworks, collected the powder, and made bigger explosive devices. Those were fun times.
I'm seriously impressed you have all you fingers. Sounds like fun times. I never dismantled fireworks, but I did my share of similar shenanigans.
Many many times.
Yes, but not in a country travel way, just across town. And I was wearing a school shirt too, and my destination was the school so...
Inspired by Shazam?
Sort of. I saw someone hitchhiking the other day and thought about asking about it. Shazam just reminded me to ask :)
in Austria, I did. :)
No, I haven't... I hope I never have to.
Yep, a few years ago.
I did through the 80s, but haven't recently. Not bc I'm afraid to, I just haven't needed to. Have thought about doing it cross country sometime - bucket list.
What do you think I am? A rangers fan?
In the 1960s & 1970s. I can't imagine doing it today.
