I'm thinking about my next move from my hometown, Besançon. I started hitchhiking when I wanted to go back home after school before the bus was arriving, so I was around 15-16 years old. My biggest HH trip was in Canada, when I crossed two time the country in 6 months. I also did 4 HH trip around Europe.

My first driver of this trip stopped a bit after Watson Lake. She told me she could pick me up if I'm on the way on the next day. Well, after 2 minutes waiting, she passed by and stopped for me again.
Two Swiss & Bears
After a long time waiting in Watson Lake, I got picked up by a couple from Switzerland in their camping car. We stopped a bit after for a swim in a lake. Nice spot. Then, we drove a bit more, and saw some bears along the way. Was cool! They drop me off in a parking lot near some hot springs and I camped for the night.
A woman stopped and asked me some questions before picking me up. She wasn't sure she was doing to do it as it was a first time for her. Then, we talked really well, and she opened up, even shared a lunch with me.
Got to know a little bit more about the tree planting industry. Tough job!
Man Out Of Prison
A young native Canadian man out of prison since a bit picked me up. He killed one guy in a fight when he was younger, by accident. He was very humble and nice.

Forgot My Phone - No Worries
Got picked up by a native Canadian artist. Was so great that I forgot my phone. Couple of days after, after calling myself, he could finally answer and give it back to me.

Not His Way
I was waiting for a long time, and after a local saw me two times, he decided to stop, and asking me where I wanted to go. He drove me all the way, and we went for a beer afterwards together. He even showed me some places around.
