Hitchhiking Defined: Hitchhiking, also known as thumbing or hitching, is a means of transportation that is gained by asking people, usually strangers, to share their transportation. The latter may require many rides from different people; a ride is usually, but not always, free.
Hitching a ride, sharing transport by people began when working animas were first domesticated by humans and trained to perform transportation tasks.

At age 28 I hitched from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Port St. Lucie, Florida, a few days at that age. It has always amazed me to listen to negative comments about hitchhiking. Generally the people who picked me up were always great, they gave with nothing to gain return, generous and helpful. When you put your thumb out, there is freedom in knowing it is all just hope and benevolence that is going to stop.
