Do you ever hitch hike now? Do you have any scary hitch hiking stories?
I hitch hiked once and only once. My friends and i were hitch hiking, to a place I used to live to see my friends brother and my ex-boyfriend and first love. We we got in the car, the guy started driving. He turned, when we were supposed to be going straight. He wouldn't listen to us, until we started yelling like crazy. He finall let us out and I never got in a car with a stranger again, and I never will.
I don't believe that I have actually hitch hiked.
I did with my friends when we could not find rides to the clubs we wanted to go to. I only have one funny story. One time, my sister, my friend and I were hich hiking and someone stopped to give us a ride. We climbed in the car and we started a conversation with the man who was driving. He was an older gentleman and had a little accent, so one thing led to another and we come to find out where he was living and he said he was visiting relatives in the area and asked us if we knew a man by a certain name....The three of us stopped talking and looked at each other in total shock, because the man had said my dad's name. So my sister and I asked him what his name was and when he told us, we bursted out: "Hi uncle!, our dad is doing just fine." The man proceded to say he had recognized us right away and knew who we were and that is why he had picked us up, because he wanted to make sure we got to our destination safely. This man was my dad's godfather and our great uncle. For the rest of the way we had a blast talking to him and laughed about all the stories he told us about my dad when he was a little boy and he also promised to never tell our dad he had picked us up, because he knew my dad would give us trouble. I don't think my dad ever found out over the years we had hitched a ride with our great uncle.
My friend and I did one time. No scary stories but it was freaky and we never did it again. There was one older gentleman that pulled over to pick us up, before we got in he asked if we had any guns or knives. My friend said no, do you?!? lol! he said no so we got in the car. Man, we were so stupid sometimes.
I hitched a ride once... with my daughter. We had car trouble south of Madison, WI on our way home once many years ago, before I had a cell phone. Hitched a ride to Edgerton, where I called a tow truck, and my brother, who lived in Baraboo at the time (about 1/2 hour or so north of Madison). He came and picked us up, car was repaired the next day.
I also have picked up hitchhikers on two occasions. Once was in Black River Falls, WI, on the way from my sister's (near LaCrosse), to my mother's (Way up north). It was Christmas morning, it was freezing, and there was a teen age boy walking along the street. When I stopped, he told me he was on his way to church, so I gave him a ride. The other time was not too far north of there, and I had seen a guy walking with a gas can. Came across his car about 5 miles later. Turned around and offered him a ride.
I never did. My Mom put the fear of God in us over that one!
I do have friends that have some horror stories, so I had no interest even.
No, I was never that stupid. I was always very conscious of danger and stayed clear. Like when I was a teen and would do some drugs. I was one that never went so far that I didn't know what I was doing or what was happening to me.
I never have. I never would or will.
