Ottawa → Montreal 196km Hitchhiked by Lois 2

Ottawa to Nowhere

After 3h waiting time, about to give up finally Dave stopped and drove me halfway on the 417 at the exit to go to Hawkesbury where there is the Herb's gas station. Not many people there, almost no one going on the highway. Thought I was going to have to pinch my tent for the night!

Nowhere to Montreal

Finally I got very lucky and the second car getting onto the highway stopped to pick me up to Montreal. Temy and Aletta, 2 professional dancers who were going to teach a workshop in Montreal and stopped at the gas station to refill. Nice ride

Winnipeg to Kenora

After being dropped off on the Highway 1 by my host (thanks so much!), got picked up by Eric in 5 min for a first ride towards Kenora. Good ride, Eric used to hitchhike a lot as well.

Kenora to Ottawa

After 1h15 min waiting on the 17 north of Kenora, Marcel stopped to pick me up. He said he was going south of Ottawa. He has a pick up with a caravan. After what happened between Calgary and Winnipeg (You can read that on the Calagary->Moosomin trip), I try not to be to optimistic and stay on guard in case he turns to also be an asshole. But Passing Thunder Bay I agree to go… (read on in Trip)

Calgary → Moosomin 964km Hitchhiked by Lois 2
Alone Strathmore calgary Alberta Canada Pervert Asshole Bad experience Moosomin Strathmore Saskatchewan Alberta Canada

Calgary to Strathmore

Diffcult start, I waited 1h30 at the traffic light and gave up this HH spot. Then I walked past the bridge to hitchhike directly on the highway, got pick up while walking on the side showing a thumbs up, not even had time to reach the point I was aiming. I definitely recommend to not try at the traffic light and walk directly on the Highway. I got a ride with Nick, a nice guy,… (read on in Trip)

Strathmore to Toronto? Oh no Moosomin.. Thanks asshole.

Got picked up at the exit of Strathmore in less than 5 min by an Indian truck driver, Gagan, who doesn't speak english very well, but we could manage to talk. This guy was driving from Calgary to Toronto! I'm going till Halifax so I saw a potential very long ride. Except that once the night showed up, he stopped in Moosomin, for potentially spend the night there as Calgary –>… (read on in Trip)

Moosomin to Winnipeg

After being unpredictably staying for the night in a motel in Moosomin (because of the fucking pervert and asshole of the day before –> see previous trip), I started hitchhiking around 9:30am to go to Winnipeg. Traffic was pretty low, half very local. I finally got picked up after 40min by 2 very nice guys, Martin and Timon. We had very nice talks and I spent a good time… (read on in Trip)

Kamloops → Calgary 594km Hitchhiked by Lois 2
Alone Canmore Kamloops Alberta British Columbia Canada Canmore calgary Alberta Canada

Kamloops to Canmore

Glenn, truck driver, pick me up in Kamloops. Great ride, interesting person, offered me lunch!!!!! Refused to share the price. Offered me to take his hotel room, and he will stay sleeping in the truck instead if I decided to stop hitchhiking for the day. Big traveller himself and hitchhiker.

Canmore to Calgary

After being dropped off on the highway in Canmore around 19:00, there was still some daylight so I decided to give it a try to reach Calgary. In 5 minutes I got picked up by a Engin and his daughter. I was the first hitchhiker he picked up in his life. Very nice person who travelled a lot as well. Made a detour to drop me off at my friend's place directly.

Hope to Kamloops

While walking along the road in the direction of the on-ramp I was having my sign visible in case, and got picked up in less than 5 min while walking for a direct ride to Kamloops by Tony. Great ride as well, Tony had many hitchhiking stories and traveling stories to share.

Vancouver to Hope

Got picked up in 20min by Andre who was going to pick up some friends and then drive to a cabin north of Hope. We stopped to pick his friends and managed to pack up everything in the car. We stopped by a Costco for them to get some groceries for their trip. Nice and fun ride! Got dropped off in Hope.
