Flagstaff → Grand Canyon Village
We had been waiting for only a few minutes when two French women with enormous backpacks walked up and began hitchhiking directly in front of us. We felt like it took a while to get a ride because people thought we were a group of four. Ultimately, we all were picked up by a chill park ranger who drove us straight to the canyon.

Gila Bend → San Diego
Failed attempt to hitch out of Phoenix
Police harassed us and threatened to arrest us if we attempted to hitchhike. They told us hitchhiking was certain death, and that they were only protecting us. A police officer escorted us to a regional bus stop and bought us $5 tickets to Gila Bend.

The next morning we were having no luck hitching from the on ramp. After an hour's wait, we walked through some fields and climbed directly onto the interstate. After 5 minutes, a nice couple (the mom and dad type) picked us up. They were very concerned for our well-being. They drove us straight to San Diego and dropped us off at Balboa Park.

single woman family first time hitchhiking
My first hitchhiking experience!
I was taking a rideshare to Phoenix from Flagstaff when the driver's car broke down. Stranded on the roadside, another passenger named Kayla and I decided to try to hitchhike instead. It worked! We stuck out our thumbs, and an SUV pulled over shortly after. It was a mom and her four kids, driving down to Phoenix to get a tattoo. We were hooked!

Hitchhiking to school
A group of us would flag down cars and ask them for a ride back to school; we would all pile in for the short trip up the hill.
