Hitching Sign

860 Miles by Thumb

I just got into Portland, Oregon after hitching from Lone Pine, California to Cascade Locks for the 9th annual PCT Days. Most of the ride was much less eventful than anticipated, and took me much less time than I budgeted for. It took 16 hours in 6 strangers’ cars, with an overnight in Bend at a friend’s house.

And then I was there at Bridge of the Gods in Cascade Locks having a great time with fellow hikers.

More on the wacky part of the hitch hike soon.
