Adventures in Hitchhiking

I knew I would have to do this at some point. I’m nervous as I stand by the road with my magic thumb.

A minute passes.

“Am I doing this right?? Should my thumb go the other way?”

A few more cars drive by. I try to smile wider.

Look, I’m innocent.

Wait, this smile makes me look loony.

I try to look normal.

Finally, after 3 entire minutes of waiting, a Lexus slows down. A beautiful angelic woman rolls her window down and asks “Are you Acorn??”

And that’s how I scored my first hitchhike… in a Lexus with leather seats.

Today, I rest at a beautiful hostel at the base of the mountains. It’s a wonderful sunny day. My toenails are freshly painted red and I am ready for the next 70 miles in more ways than just physically.

(Thanks Janet!!)

PS: Much love to Becky for your sweet postcard. It made me so very happy.

  1. Love your posts 🙂 When you come through Ct, feel free to give me and my boyfriend a shout out. We live here and would be happy to help you out by giving you a ride or giving you a free, cozy place to stay (we have a guest room) 🙂

  2. Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal
    experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
