I just saw on Hitchwiki that the dates have been announced for the annual North American Hitchgathering. It takes place from July 13-18th along the south fork of the Yuba River near Nevada City, California. I pasted the following information from the Hitchwiki page:

What is a Hitchgathering?
The hitchgathering is an annual meet up where hithchikers, rubber tramps, train hoppers and wanderers from all walks of life come together to share stories, have a good time, and learn. Everyone is welcome. We also aim to promote a better view of travelers and our presence to the public.

When
July 13th-18th

Directions to Base Camp
From Nevada City, California hitch (guaranteed easy hitch Iin this town) 8 miles north/west on highway 49 and get off at the bridge crossing the South Fork of the Yuba River. Hike/climb about 400 yards downstream (ANKLE BREAKING HIKE OVER BOULDERS OR THROUGH WATER) to arrive at camp where the giant log lays on the beach. BRING WATER.

I'll definitely be there this year. Hopefully some more other people will show up from StP. @TheWindAndRain has gone in past years and is helping organize this year's event so maybe he can drop in with more info or answer questions.

Hope to see you at the Hitchgathering!

I'm going to try to make it. Is it frowned on to not currently be travelling and go? I am currently not on the road, but this seems really fun, so I figured I'd stop by if I can. Also I think the wiki says it is in July not August.

Currently in NL heading west
Too bad it wasn't closer to the U.S./CAN border to help make it a bit easier for the peeps of North America to get together. A more central location would be a worthy consideration I think.

Hey I'm not too active here on STP but I'll be heading up to the gathering also.. there's a Facebook event page up at: Please spread the world to any of your traveling mates around the area.

And in response to @ymir up above, doesn't matter to me if you're currently traveling or not, I'd hope it would feel like a pretty inclusive event for all past/present/future travelers..

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
