“HEY!! You going to Dave’s party??”

“Huh?”

“No, I don’t know about a party.”

“Oh.”

“Sorry…”

“You need a ride somewhere?”

“Sure.”

“I can take you a little ways. The other band’s late, and I think they thought you were one of the dudes.”

“I’ve had kids recently, so I haven’t stopped as often as I used to. But I grew up without a car. My mom died when I was one, and I was raised by my grandmother. And we didn’t have a vehicle. We used to walk everywhere we went. I never really ended up going many places. We always depended on other people for help in that way.”

Hitchhike Interview #70

“I’m a mechanic. I guess I’ve got in the habit of stopping to help people. Not that I can fix everything, but there are a lot of things I can fix. There used to be more of a culture of hitchhiking. Military men would go on furlough and hitchhike home.”

“The main reason I like helping people is ’cause of Jesus. I like to show his love because Jesus loves everybody.”

Hitchhiking Interview 50


“I’m just an average person. I’m probably like anyone else. I think – ‘Wow, is that guy a bad guy?’ And if I had my wife in here, I’d ask her – ‘sweetheart, what do you think?’ And she’d have said yay or nay.”

Hitchhiking

It’s cool to have reached a place I know and love.

That doesn’t mean people are any more likely to understand what I’m doing or why.

And that’s okay.
