New Hampshire
so this will be my first time traveling, and ive never hitched other than short rides locally so kinda clueless as to what route i should take and what states i do and dont wanna go through haha. im planning on starting out in a couple weeks, some legal troubles have set me back, but any and all advice would be much appreciated. im thinking of taking a greyhound out to start off and go from there, depending on the fares, cause i dont have any real money haha. but help me out!

Route 90(masspike/ny thru way) to 80 goes the whole way. Mostly toll roads (so know your laws & how to be within the law but stil get rides) till midwest then desolate but easy travelin. Good luck & get movin, its already cold at night across rockies & elsewhere otherwise you may need to take a southern route.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $90.00 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
    $90.00 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.
