Go on try hitch hiking, its my favorite way of traveling a lot like fishing, never knowing when your going to get that bite.
Also never knowing where your going to end up, what a way to enter into your first adventure, Andover to Chester for 20p the cost of a cup of tea in a trade entrance of a B&Q for my lorry driving lift.
I was turned onto this form of travel by listening to a Radio 4 interview with Art Garfunkel who would hop off a plain from the USA and become totally anonymous when standing on the side of the road.
Traveling around England on a two week holiday with none of his lifts knowing who he was.
Also a few years on watching the cult hitch hiking movie Roadside USA about two friends crossing the USA and interviewing folks as they go, here a quick glimpse into the world of free travel a wonderful short film called ” Lift ” by Nathan Raye.
Here is a small trailer for the cult movie Roadside USA headed up by Austin Vince, 10,000 miles of ultra low budget hitch-hiking interviews, Easily Austins Vince`s finest work.
