Flagging a ride On Out of Here

30 Jun

A few months ago I was asked if I wanted to write an article for wheroines.com (Where are my Heroines?). “Sure”, I said, I’ll generally agree to most things that are that far away.

“A few months” snuck up on me and now my article is struggling to put on her pants, while rushing out the door. This is a compilation blog post — not a where-is-she-now expose — on This Chick who Hitchhikes.

      Aw, thanks so much for stepping it up. If it helps, I’m currently stationed in Sydney with no real plans to hitchhike anytime over the next 3 months 🙂 LOVE YOU!!

    You’re going to Cambodia?!? I should have known.

    I’m thrilled to read of your experiences, but it goes without saying (“but I’ll say it anyway”), concerned about some of them. Enjoy and be safe. I love being your dad.

    Every time I read you, I suddenly feel less cool… and I’m super cool (3 levels above regular cool)… I’ll be watching for your thumb, take care!

      My thumb’s going to be looking for you, too. xx
