Hi guys - I know interstate laws vary, but a friend and I are planning a coast to coast trip and are under 25, meaning car rental comes with hefty surcharges. Being two 6ft+ guys we are less worried about safefy, but were wondering if anyone had any experiences they could share about trying to get lifts around the US?
We are planning to Amtrak and Greyhound where possible, but hitching seems like a handy (if a little unreliable!) way of getting around the smaller places not served so well by public transport (national parks etc)
Any tips or information anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
(we going late Aug- early Oct, SF to NY via texas etc if it helps)
