So, if you have read my past posts you'll know where this van was picked up from. San clemente. Our time in the van was limited, just a short trip from LA until a small border town in Arizona, but it is a defining experience to the entire trip. These 2 girls, Erin and Danielle, where our saviors from LA. They picked myself, Shaun, and light up from San clemente and we planned to ride all the way to Arkansas.

On The Road - 4

L.A. sucks. It is a horrible place, I had an alright time there, and I really can't complain ... But it is like eating your moms jell-o (you don't like it, But she loves to make it) you are sure that some people like Cherry Jell-o, and it may even have a fruit or 2 suspended in it that you enjoy ...

After that reststop in Las Banos we got a ride (some 200 miles) from a guy in a nice sedan, leather seats, air conditioned in front and back,...

Cars are driving by at a steady enough rate for a road of it's size, But no one wants to pick up 3 soaked people with 3 large, and equally as soaked, backpacks so we had been there awhile.

Have you ever been to Los Banos?

If you have been to a Mexican restaurant, You'll remember the sign Banos from The Bathrooms. Los banos itself is a city, However the part of it that Interstate 5 runs through (below)

On The Road in America - Part 1

Posted 06-25-2011 at 09:41 AM by Hevithan


Well since this blog option is available, I may as well utilize it.

I was thinking I would chronicle my time I spent hitch-hiking the grand ole US. Roughly 4 years, in which I saw plenty of states, met tons of people, and did things most people have only read about or dreamed.

During this tour of adventures I was banned from National Monuments, stuck on a mountain at 11,000 feet with no more then a $20 tent from wal-mart, spent $3,000 dollars at a convinence
