America’s #1 Hitchhiker links to Kindred Souls

Hitching Tenn
After my packs were stolen in Texas, I traveled with my laptop backpack and a suitcase on rollers (which quickly wore out). This is Tennessee in April.

“Driver, driver, may I have a ride,
Yes sir, yes sir, step inside.”

Hitchhikers rhyme

At the outset of 2013, I set out to write about American traveling carnivals but all the hitchhiking, about 15,000 miles through the US and Canada, meant I also wrote about hitchhiking.

When a famous hitchhiking Web site, Velabas, linked yesterday to Eyes Like Carnivals, I decided to list the hitchhiker Web sites out there.

BTW, Velabas is so much more than just a hitchhiking site. The artist behind it wants it to be an extension of his life’s esthetic. Read him.

One more thing, reading these Web sites showed me what I already thought might be true.

I hitched the more miles and states in North America in 2014 than anyone, making me America’s #1 Hitchhiker.

Until proven wrong, that’s my ride.

“Hitchin’, hitchin’ ain’t so dumb
Bitchin’, bitchin’, frickin’ fun
Next time, next time, watch my thumb
Thank you, thank you says this one.”
