Part Three: Night Hitchhiking
Sometimes you just want to hitch all night long, and the adreline rush you get from doing it is ceartinly thrilling. Hitchhiking at night is undoubtably more dangerous than during the day, but if you are in a rural area than it’s probably fine….danger-wise. Be sure to stand in well-lighted areas, and try not to act too drunk, you cretin. There’s lots of techniques to get attention while night hitchhiking: blinking your flashlight, standing in front of a reflecting sign so that you become a huge shadow in front of “Bogotá 150km,” breaking off reflectors and placing them in stratigic places over your body, glowsticks – but usually you’re better off turning in and waiting for morning.
Your most successful night hitchhiking will probably be at all-night truck stops or gas stations, which is convienent since if you get tired of trying you can just crash out back and in the morning you’ll still be in a decent hitchhiking spot.
