I found your questions to me on my facebook mail.Apparently you left them for me a few years ago and I never found them until tonight.In the late 60's and early 70's i would get a hair up my ass and stick my thumb out and see where I would end up at.I found myself in some very different places.Twice I found myself in Barstow,California,next to an on ramp next to an interstate highway.The first time I got stuck for 3 days in Barstow when I was with my girlfriend in 1972.I remember it like it was yesterday because there were nine of us trying to get a ride on that particular on ramp and we had been there all day without getting a ride,There was a liquor store within walking distance and I made the walk to get some Boones Farm peach wine because I was the only one of the nine that was of age,We thought we had hid the wine from the CHIP's cop when he pulled up and started checking ID's.I was the last to be carded by him.He freaked me out when he told me to leave the wine when we got a ride!He had me dead to rights and would have had me for possesion of pot if he had been like most cops and searched me!If you'd like to read about some of my adventures while hitchhiking,just drop me an email and I if I get it I'll write back.

i love what you have done. I took a few photos of some trees carved on the outskirts of Aspen, Colorado and above a small swimming hole at the end of Independence Pass - i was there in 1969 and 1970 and certainly one of the wandering and "lost souls" that spent a lot of time in Boulder, Nederland and even Aspen. some of the names carved took me back.

As described on the home and intro pages of this website, I began this journey that hitchhiker graffiti has taken me on in 1992. And I began creating and posting on and uploading onto this website in July of 2013. So it has taken me about one-and-a-half years to get to this point of website development that I felt it time to start this blog--on New Year's Day of 2015. So contrary to a well-known quote on the subject, somethings can change on New Year's Day. Happy New Year.
