I have been on two cross-country hitchhikes. The first was in the summer of ’07 when I hitchhiked 5,500 miles from Alaska to New York. The second took place in the spring of 2008 when I hitched with my then-girlfriend, Sammy. We went from Mississippi to New York in 25-days. Below, are the tales of each journey.
“Rules of Thumb” is the day-by-day story of my Alaska-to-NY journey from May-June 2007.
Rule of Thumb #8: Listening is an art form Hope, British Columbia to Rock Island, Washington (303 miles) Rule of Thumb #9: When there’s no other alternative, walk Rock Island, Washington to La Grande Oregon (296 miles)
“Lovin’ and bummin’ on the open road: An exploration of America’s east coast” is my hitchhiking adventure, when I traveled with my girlfriend Sammy in the Spring of 2008 from Mississippi to New York.
