I have hitchhiked for as much as 500 miles at a time... i used to hitch hike ALL THE DAMN TIME in my college town... but its a little different there... i would usually get picked up by very nice young girls... who i would berate for picking me up as they kindly drove me to my destination...
"Hey, thanks for picking me up, but you shouldnt pick up hitch hikers, what if i was some psycho with bad intentions"
the normal response was usually....but your not, and you are cute, here is my number.....
I wouldnt say its a regular practice of mine to pick up hitch hikers...its a judgement call...i have picked up my share of hippies and hassidic jews however... if you can deal with the smell, you are at least guaranteed some interesting conversation (worth the ride in my opinion).
