Is Hitchhiking for You?

Hitchhiking is not for everyone.

If you can afford it, flying is more comfortable. Taking your own car or renting one is another option.

If money is an issue, consider going by bus. I am aware they have such a notoriously bad reputation that Harry Chapin once chimed they were “a dog of a way to get around.” But I imagine they’ve greatly improved, and you will almost most certainly arrive at your destination quicker than you would if you went by thumb.

Perceived risk is another consideration. Although for obvious reasons hitchhiking is not conducive to statistics,  we have all heard stories.
