Part Nine: Hitchhiking in Bad Weather
When it rains, it pours, and this is oftentimes true while your hitchhiking.
If you decide to hitchhike in bad weather, make sure you are prepared. If it is raining, have clean, dry socks on hand. If it’s snowing, make sure you’re well-insulated and have dry clothes avalible to you.
If you have a tarp, you can try and use this to keep yourself relatively dry.
If you find yourself not in desperate need of a ride when the weather breaks, try to utilise this time to dry your equipment, if the situation allows for it. Hang wet socks or gloves from tree branches.
At the end of the day, try to find a place to dry your gear, such as the inside of a gas station near the heater.
