Just listened to the hitch wiki podcast- brilliant. I am a single mum with greeting hair, struck down with a virus and looking for options of cheap travel with my seven and nine year old children. I start feeling, that it can be done! Used to hitchhike lots more than 25 years ago and had mostly good experiences.
Hi Siri, sorry for the late reply! I am so glad you enjoyed that episode. I really think you can still budget travel with kids and hope you can get back out on the road soon!
The interview is amazing, Jason! Thanks a bunch for sharing!
