While we were hiking, we met an older married couple on the trail and briefly chatted. They were named Joanne and Jim. We passed them, and upon reaching the trailhead, realized that their luxury car was the only vehicle in the parking lot. We stuck our thumbs out and they picked us up- they told us the only reason they stopped was because we had spoken on the trail. We were… (read on in Trip)

A lovely woman in her late 20's named Larose picked us up. She is Navajo. We stopped at an outdoor flea market in Dikon, most people were selling stuff out of the trunks of their cars. Bought some Kneel Down bread (good!) and talked with locals. Stopped at her mom's house in Greasewood. She told us about her high school sweetheart, who used to drive his quad across the open… (read on in Trip)

Grand Canyon Village → Phoenix
A Navajo Shaman named Billy picked us up. He dropped Martina off in Flagstaff, and then took me to my front door in Phoenix. He blessed us with sweet grass and a prayer. Told us about the sacred sun dance. Invited me to a pow wow where he dances. Warned me of dangers in Chinle. Shared stories from his youth- he hitchhiked to Wounded Knee! Talked about his time in Vietnam, and… (read on in Trip)

A father and his 14 year old son in a minivan packed with supplies for a two week road trip. There were no seats so we sat on the floor. The father had hitchhiked extensively in his youth, mostly in the Canadian wilderness and the West. Full of adventure stories, life experience, and political perspective. They were heading on to Colorado.

A woman from Neot Semadar picked us up. Neot Semadar is one of the few kibbutzim in Israel that have not been privatized. Everyone who lives there shares finances, no one has a specialized job, and they truly live as a community. It was fascinating to get her perspective on what it is like to live in such a place, as well as her opinions on why so many kibbutzim have moved… (read on in Trip)

An empty tour bus picked us up! The driver only spoke Hebrew.
Two brothers picked us up, they were heading to the beach. They asked if we wanted to go for a swim before parting ways, and we agreed. They took a back way on dirt roads to avoid paying private beach fees. The water was the bluest blue and refreshingly cold. We all dove in, explored the ancient Roman ruins nearby, and then they drove us to our next hitchhiking spot. It was a sweet ride.
