Rookie mistake

First ride of my life, of course I was so excited and clueless I hopped in, but the guy wasn't driving very far. Had to turn back to my first, excellent, spot.

Antti

Candy break XD

Ski Dad

From gas station to gas station. Had to ask around for this one.

A little push

Nice mom with her kid took quite a detour just to get me to a big gas station where I actually had a chance of finding a ride. Struggled to find the spot at the start in Jyväskylä (Pakkola shopping centre) and there was not much traffic. Long-distance hitchhiking on a Sunday… not the best idea.

Mystery Chauve Man

Single male who spoke no English and kept vey quiet, but took a detour and dropped me in the city centre.

Human kindness and random interactions

Everything seemed alright, until he started making hints to sexual topics: that his mother-in-law secretly wanted his D and that he knew she was waiting for him to give it to her, but that he was looking for someone younger, that I should come visit his… (read on in Trip)

The boss says it's fine

I asked a group of young men at a petrol station if they had some space left in their van, which I estimated to be quite improbable, given the fact that there were six of them. They didn't seem to understand and told me to wait for "the boss". "The boss", as they proceeded to call him, turned out to be the head of the refugee orphanage they were returning to after having spent… (read on in Trip)
