Hitchhiking is teaching me resilience. When you’re hitching, 100, 200, 300 people may reject you at a time. They may drive by sneering, but the 301st will stop and say, “Man, this journey you’re on. I find it really inspiring. You want to get lunch?” And that one person is worth the 300, because the alternative to the possibility of rejection is a life without human connection.
