i used to hitch hike to school in cheshire, uk when i was abt 14-16yr old, i lived abt 15miles from school and had to walk a mile to the nearest train station on both ends. i met some cool dudes along the way but those were the days. i got picked up in an orange porsche and that guy thought he was schmacher, he actually ended up picking me up regularly, ppl are very kind oop north i find!
