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!
