Saulisito is good one. If you can make it to Novato is even better.


But your BEST bet is to look up the bus from SF to Santa Rosa, to Cloverdale and hitch from the McDonald's offramp. It's like $10 or sommething. Save you alot of trouble.

Or, ya know, hitch out of the tourist parking lot for the Golden Gate Bridge viewarea. I have got rides from there before...the cops will stop you though.

5 is possibly the slowest way out. not to mention it is as you may already be aware, not anywhere even remotely close to SF.

train out of ok to sac is i think daily though and extremely straightforward catch.

what didnt you like about hitching the 101? i know saisalito isnt the quickest spot and there are plenty of bussing options to places like petaluma and SR

Nothing wrong with 101! Just too slow. Ended up going up 101 and made it from Oakland to Portland in 2 days and a morning, which wasn't too bad.
