Been in Indiana for 5 days and got one ride (20miles). This state blows donkey balls.

Best was Minnesota though. 4 nights in a row people let me stay at their houses and meet their families.

Illinois sucked pretty bad. Kinda like Connecticut in away. People nowadays can careless about themselves let alone a hitchhiker like me. I had easier time with catching out of Illinois by freight than thumbin' it on the interstate.

I don't have any problems with Texas the people that I had to deal with where friendly and the cops weren't to bad but it was a tough state to hitch in. Spent most of my time walking. As far as walking on the interstate I don't. Every time that I have walked on the interstate I have had many problems with the hwy patrol.

Ive walked six miles in a light mist/drizzle from Huntington West V.A. to Ashland Kentucky on the interstate. It was quite nice in a way....

You've had luck in New England? Home for me is in NH and I feel like its fairly difficult to hitch thru and out of NE
I have noticed that the closer I am to my home area the harder it is for me to get rides. I swear that drivers can sense that if i dont get a ride that I will just walk the few miles home. Once I get going tho I never have a problem. I have hitched, MA, NH & ME many times (live in New bedford, MA)

Northern cal (im sure this has been said or wrote) around eureka all the way into portland can be so bad, literally waiting in line for the off ramp.

Ive only hitched in Florida. Took me two days to get from Orlando to Sarasota. 7 rides in 140 miles. Not too bad. I was a super noob back then though and didnt know much of what I was doing. Looking to test out the rest of the country this summer during a cross country hitch.

For me being female the hardest is my own home state Oklahoma. The best? Florida or anywhere in the south anyways. The worst? The NE! Anything like NY, NH,ME, MA I think you get the message! The friendliest? I'd have to say NM and AZ

Kansas sucked because the interstate was technically private property owned by the state. Like some tollway bs. Indiana i hitched from my hometown of indianapolis to Evansville easy. I have a feeling state roads are better than interstates in indy. Got hassled by cops near interstate 64 i think it was. He told us to walk to the next exit but not on the shoulder, got a truck bed ride immediately while on shoulder since it was impossible to walk anywhere else. Saw the cop looking for us goin eastbound and taking the offramp

The worst I've ever been in is New Jersey, since hitching is illegal and cops are ASSHOLES there it's hard to get more than 15 miles into that state without getting stuck AS FUCK. I've heard florida is really shit too, but I've never been (and I hope I never have to).

(province) ONTARIO. People wait days for a ride, it's so long between big cities in Northern Ontario and you can get stuck in the middle of fucking-bumbkin-ville easily. uhg, awful.

After hitchhiking across the USA this past month, I would say Idaho or Kentucky. I went through 13 states and Idaho (where hitchhiking is actually completely illegal) was one of the toughest states. Probable a mixture of the large Mormon population there and the fact that it is actually illegal to hitchhike anywhere.

What about NY? Cause I'm a woman and you know how that can go, trying to avoid things happening.
