What has happened to hitchhiking? When I was younger I hitchhiked all over the place. I vowed at the time that if I ever became moble myself, I would always stop and give them a lift. Now with thousands of miles of karmic debt, they have all gone. When I ask, people say " Its too dangerous nowadays " but that`s bs. When I was young you took your chances but now you can photograph the vehicles number plate/driver and send it to your mum before you get in. Plus your phone has gps.
What has happened is the climate of fear. We are all too scared of each other. Movies show serial killers and the news makes us afraid of the outside world. So a great way to get around has been lost to stupidity.
