Jesse / Hitchhiking / Ride List: Crossing the Country

Crossing the Country


The Overview: A list of rides for a hitchhike trip across the country (USA) completed in October 1995.

The below trip was my first time crossing the whole country, Eastern Pennsylvania - Western Montana. I took every ride which stopped, over twenty in all. In later trips I learned the art of selective hitchhiking on long distance trips. Eventually I began averging a little over 5 rides per time across.
