What?? This sounds scaryI have tried SO many signs and really I think they are irrelevant. Personally, I like "Free Hitchhiker", but that is just to entertain myself. The most important thing for hitchhiking, in my experience, is eye contact and a positive demeanor without looking like I am trying too hard. This is with my pit bull dog. She is a sweetie. Most people say I looked friendly so they picked me up. Eye contact eye contact eye contact and smile. Faster than anything else I have tried. More often than not, standing, eye contact, and a smile gets me a ride within 30 minutes, and we all know, that is GOOD.
On a side note, I never ever ever ever ever hitch with a girl. That is how you get the predators. I had a serial killer pick me and my GF up once and shove a gun in our faces to kidnap and murder us. We ended up spending the night playing cat and mouse in the woods with him until we finally got away. No girls for me, thanks.
I'm just wondering what position that would put me in. As a woman. What do you think? Are women better off staying off the road?The eye contact or the serial killer? Yeah, it was when I was around 22. When things go down like that you don't get scared. You just take care of it and have your nervous breakdown after. Don't get me wrong. I love women, I will hop with them, but I won't hitch with one. No offense.
Well I'm just asuming trains are dangerous as well cause the train itself can be a killer?? Of course I'm no expert on this and I appreciate the advice but do you really mean that???(puny woman........ect.) what if all travelers were men?Well, the thing is, I don't want to come off like a caveman. "puny woman stay in kitchen where it safe". But seriously, especially if you have not spent a lot of time on the roads, travel with a guy and have the guy sit directly behind the driver. I highly suggest trains. Just my two cents.

haha ill keep it in mind..not really a drinker anyways but I wouldn't even try to hop without someone experienced there with me. And I wouldn't hitchhike alone eitherNah, there are plenty of women on the road. Riding trains is crazy easy if you have someone teach you how to do it. Just never ever ever drink before hopping out. Always have a gallon of water with a screw top, not a pop top. Most amputation stories start with, we all got so wasted and...
