Hitch Hiking Across America

Cody Smart tells a pretty good story about hitchhiking across America.
The photos are awesome.
More Here.

When I was 12, I used to hitch-hike rides up Bluebird canyon with my friend Jay in Laguna Beach.
I got the impression that hitch-hiking was pretty safe.
Then when I was 17 I picked up a hitchhiker on a freeway on ramp. near my house. Two of his buddies jumped in, and when I told them to get out, one of them pulled a switch blade and they stole my car. I had a Family friend, Uncle Bill, well after that, he used to joke that I wouldn't pick up another hitchhiker if it was a 18 year old female in the nude. So far he has been correct.
