If you find yourself hitching south on the 101 in CA out of The Bay, you may want to avoid the southernmost onramp in Gilroy, right off of Monterey Road, next to the Hilton. Or at the very least hitch at the very bottom of the onramp. It goes up a hill, two lanes with a very wide pullover shoulder. It looked perfect so I went up near the top to give people time to see me. A shady looking dude is walking up the opposite side and once he gets closer near I am, asks what I’m doing. I tell him I’m trying to hitch to LA. He gets pissed and starts screaming about how “we live here” (referring to the patch of trees and tall grass behind him and how I need to go to the bottom and stop “bringing sweat on them.” Luckily a lady pulled up right as I was heading down and gave me a ride. So yeah, territorial homebums on that ramp, at least as of now.
