From Denver to Lincoln by hopper car (riding on the front ledge)...

piggyback rail car

...then from Lincoln to Chicago by trailer piggyback (between rear truck wheels).

Route 66

Two guys in a stolen convertible gave us a ride from Texas to California.

Total hitchhiked: about 22,000 miles in 8 months.


The number of trips between Chicago, Cleveland, and New York were numerous and there may have been more than shown. From St. Louis to Lincoln and the round trip between Chicago and Minneapolis were by bus.
