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)

Hippy powaa

I started hitchhiking from Encinitas on the ramp on the highway 5 which is technically a good spot with traffic lights and a wide place for cars to pull over at the entrance of the on ramp on the left side. But I guess that the neighborhood isn't very HH-friendly… 45 min for a first car to stop (A father and his daughter), but they were really not going far enough. Then… (read on in Trip)

Not even time to reach the HH spot

After being droped off from my first ride, I was kind of studying the possibilities for the next HH spot. I wasn't even physically hitchhiking (no thumbs up, no sign…) just looking around and a guy at the traffic light opened his window and asked me if I needed a lift! Very nice guy who drove from Dana Point to Laguna Beach and talked to me a lot about this area.

Old mexican pervert (again)

An old mexican stopped to pick me up at the exit of Laguna Beach. When I got in he first touched me the leg and then put his hand on my back and I told him to stop right away. I didn't do it again but his first conversation topic was to know if I liked beaches and if I was wearing tangas… And then he tried to convince me that it was the women's fault if men were harrasing… (read on in Trip)

Federal Police

For the last few km to Ensenada, the night was falling, I started to hitchhike close to a gas station. The gas station was on my back and didn't see there was a federal police car behing me (which you usually try to avoid n Mexico). I heard someone hailing me and turn to discover it was a federal policeman in his car… He asked me where I was going and picked me up till… (read on in Trip)

Pervert old mexican truck driver

Got picked up in Bahia Tortugas by an old truck driver. He drove me till Vizcaino, we left at 21:00 and before leaving offered me to sleep in the passenger sit of the truck for the night. I needed to be in Vizcaino before 8am the next morning to catch another ride to Ensenada. He started first to try to put his hand on my leg several times. I was sitting on the right the… (read on in Trip)

Social hitchhiking

On the morning, I had another ride which I call a social hitchhiking ride. I had met a german traveller earlier that month who told she went down Baja with a very cool truck driver. At the end the guy told her that if she needed another ride he was doing Ensenada-La Paz once or twice a week and so she could call him and he gave her his phone number. When I met her she told me… (read on in Trip)

Creepy young japanese

Heavy rainy day. I had just around 50-60km to hitchhike. I decided for once to hitchhike during the afternoon and started around 16:00. I know that it isn't the best time to start and that it is statistically where some people with creepy mind and bad intention can stop, well this one was a perfect example of it.

Nothing happened at the end but I'm deeply persuaded that… (read on in Trip)
