|Although I am 70 now, I hitched quite a lot over the years, mostly while in university, and mostly in the U.S., passing through most states.|
Always enjoyed meeting new people and improvising my route to fit with that of various drivers.
Once I slept overnight in a model home outside Tampa, and I made the bed the next morning! Once I got a ride from actor Tom Ewell (costar with Marilyn Monroe in “Seven Year Itch”) and accepted invite to his live show at state college in PA that night.
And one time I hitched to Toronto from Ottawa, only to accept a ride that let me off in Kingston, where there are four federal prisons. Needless to say, I had to take an inter-city bus to the next town before getting my next ride.
I continue to be interested in other’s adventures, and pick up the odd book about it.
Won’t have a chance to pick you up, as I live car-lite; but if you get into central Ottawa, I’ll give you a bike tour (I have a bike trailer that will accommodate you nicely). I’ve given guided tours each year as part of Jane’s Walks.
