Alone Wild roadside coincidence single woman

My sister picked me up!

I was standing on the edge of the highway for less than a minute when I saw a minivan approaching. Two white 30-something ladies had horrified looks on their faces were in the front and I could tell they were not the type to stop. I put my thumb down… moments later, the van pulled over! Guess I was wrong… I started running up to it, and the side door slides open. My oldest… (read on in Trip)

After a long wait in the desert, Annie picked me up and rearranged her car in order to give me a ride. What an amazing woman!!

Camp Verde → Flagstaff

Another pickup truck. This one belonged to a hunter who wanted to help me out. He drove me to Flagstaff and offered to buy me McDonald's if I was hungry.

Bryce Canyon Junction → Escalante

I had the longest wait of the day in this spot. It wasn't the optimal time to be heading East, most of the traffic was heading to the national park. A Russian hitchhiker named Maxim walked up to me while I was trying to catch a ride. He said the U.S. is the worst place for hitchhiking— very contrary to my experience. He then said that the fastest way to hitchhike is as a… (read on in Trip)

A few cars passed me until a father/daughter duo stopped. Nice people, they weren't going far, but they new of a sweet dispersed camping spot near the highway up ahead. They dropped me off there as the sun was setting.

I started thumbing at the A7 entry „Marktbreit” for like 20 mins and after getting closer into the entry I got a lift right away. He let me knew right away that he picked me up cuz of my Christmas hat. One exit later he dropped me off at a gas station. Here I found a ride within 5mins that… (read on in Trip)

Climber

The guy was AWESOME! He is into climbing and environmental protection. He invited me to come back and visit him.

Fast & Generous

My driver is driving suuuuuper fast. I'm a bit scary. He invites me for lunch and then we visit his couch store. There is a lot of people visiting him for chai, and they are really interested about me. We talk soccer and end up by organizing a soccer game for the evening. So I did, helped my team win, and finally stayed with him and his students roomates.

Stuck in the truck

My truck driver invited me for food, as it is usual in Turkey. Then, he had to unload two times. He told me it was fast. The first time took one hour, so I asked him to let me out before the next one so I can continue. He didn't, and brought me to a super bad spots, so I had to stay with him. It took 2 hours, as some guy was not here with a machine to unload. I found some… (read on in Trip)

Breakfast break

I understood that my driver invited me for breakfast and then continue his trip in my direction. I go with him, but tell him I don't drink hot stuff and I'm not hungry… He makes me taking a juice. We try to communicate with all his friends at the cafe, and one of them is finding my friend's name by calling with his phone :O Then, my driver start to play cards… I pay my juice and I escape.

You Will Drink Chai

Well; this time I couldn't refuse Chai offered by my driver. And the view was fantastic in the cafe we stopped.

Sleeping in the truck

It was a very loooong drive. I went everywhere with the driver, as he was loading, unloading and again. We slept in a farm at the countryside near Afyon.

Alone single woman long wait RV

Moab → I-70 and Hwy 24

Ellie turned around to pick me up and she was amazing! She drove 30 miles out of her way to drop me in a good spot, ensuring I'd only have to wait for one ride (rather than two). She was just returning to Colorado after doing humanitarian work on the Mexican/Texas border. We talked about border-related activism, spirituality, approaching fear, and utopic world visions. A lovely ride.

Arches National Park Entrance Station → Moab

I waited for hours in the cold rain- several cars stopped for me, but all were heading to Moab (south) rather than my direction, north. The spot was less than ideal, and I stayed for too long. Eventually, I decided to get a ride down to Moab and try from there- Leftie gave me a ride the few miles into town, and I warmed up a bit before walking back out to the highway,

I-70 and Hwy 24 → Fruita, UT

I had been dropped off in the middle of the desert, no facilities for 40+ miles in any given direction. The sun was on the verge of setting. Six cars passed me in 50 minutes- the seventh stopped. Joan and Mike were from Minnesota and were edging toward the end of their road trip. Nice people, I gave them recommendations for what to do in the area, and we discussed history and travel.

Moab → Arches National Park Entrance Station

A young Frenchwoman from the hostel I was staying in kindly offered me a ride. We chatted about hitchhiking alone.

Arches National Park Entrance Station → Double Arch

An older French couple picked me up after I had been waiting not even 30 seconds. They ended up driving me down the scenic drive, and we hiked together to a few different arches and viewpoints- I spoke rudimentary French, and they spoke broken English, and we enjoyed each others company.

Double Arch → Visitor Center

A man who works for USGS picked me up. We talked about hiking and geology.

A bus of gypsies

I was standing next to a roundabout when a bus full of people stopped. This had happened more often, and most of the time they want money. I walked up to them, tried to explain that I did not have any money, but they insisted that I should come anyway. These proud self-proclaimed gypsies ended up giving me food, drinks, a wonderful time and even money for a train ticket from… (read on in Trip)

A middle-aged couple from Oklahoma picked us up. We hopped in the back of their pick-up (Emily's first time riding in the back of a truck!). They were super friendly- offered us sandwiches and checked in to make sure we were doing all right during the ride.

Ride to a better spot

A man named David Holiday and his 10 year old son picked us up. He told us he had just hitchhiked from central Mexico a few months before and thought we were brave.

Mesa Farmer Market, Caineville → Capitol Reef National Park

I waited an hour and a half in the desert sun, watching a storm slowly roll in, before a Mormon family stopped for me. While I was waiting, the cafe owner periodically would come outside and shout across the road "You're still waiting?! Screw 'em!" as cars zipped by. The family who stopped was really nice. The parents rearranged their car to fit me between the various kids. I… (read on in Trip)
