Does anybody here hitchhike? Did you ever? Do you ever pick up hitchhikers? I've hitched a ride only a couple of times, with no ill effects, but I don't think I'd do so anymore. Since I rely on relatives when my car is in the shop and use public transportation, taxis, or a rental car when I'm traveling, the need never comes up. Hitchhiking just isn't an adventure I'd choose any more. And with cell phones, people rarely need a ride to the nearest phone booth anymore. How 'bout you?
