I've been there. I was homeless before. I went my whole life doing good, always having money, always having everything I needed, and then when I was like 40-41 boom - broke - homeless. And then I really knew what help is." #Miami #hitchhiking #photography  On the move again...  Impromptu hike to Laurel Falls today with the cool guy that picked me up. #hitchhike  Happy not to be driving today!  So it begins.

I've never picked up a hitchhiker before, but you didn't look scary." #hitchhiking  Hello Scranton! #hitchhiking #scranton #pennsylvania  About to perform on WTJU 91.1 FM at the Charlottesville Farmer's Market. Show tonight at Cville Coffee @ 8pm.  "I'm a mechanic. I guess I've gotten in the habit of stopping to help people. Not that I can fix everything, but there a lot if things I can fix. There used to be more of a culture of hitchhiking. Military men would go on furlough and hitchhike home." #love #risk #hitchhiking #mechanic #truck  "I've done some hitchhiking, and I've hypothesized that drivers stop because they see some part of themselves in you on the side of the road. There's some part of them that thinks - I've done that. I've thought about doing that. I wish I could do that. And they want to be a part of the story in this way." #love #risk #hitchhiking #travel #travelblog #travelblogger #portrait  "I was curious who you were, what you were doing, and maybe... Maybe I wanted to be doing it... I'm saving up to hike the AT. I just want to go traveling, man." #hitching #hitchhiking #travel #portrait #athens #georgia  Saint Augustine, FL #hitchhiking #hitching #travel #travelblog #florida  "It's a European thing.

You going to Dave's party??" "Huh?" "The guy called and said he thought one of the guitarists was down the road." "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." #plaid-daddy #hitchhiking #maine  "I've hitched from the Everglades to Nova Scotia!" #massachusetts #hitchhiking  The Breakers Newport, RI  And all these roads look like Black Rivers... #hitchhiking #newyork #interstate  "I spent a couple years living in Alaska, and the people there were so nice - always helping us out. I think it changed me." #hitchhiking #pennsylvania  Learning to screen print concert posters from Will at Blue Ridge Graphics! #screenprinting  "The main reason I like helping people is 'cause of Jesus. I like to show his love because Jesus loves everybody." #love #risk #hitching  "I used to hitchhike all the time, but now it's so different." "We live in such a suspicious culture." "I feel like it's just promoted more now. You hear about everything that happens anywhere in the world." "So that's the question." "Is it really happening more, or is it just reported more?" #love #risktakers #hitchhiking #america #photography #travel #travelblog  "I got boys, and I keep thinking - okay now what if that was my kid out here? Because they have been out here hitchhiking." "Have they?" "Oh yeah, quite often. I even did it one time, when I was - golly, I was young. I was 17. I mean I probably wouldn't do it now... Well, I guess I would if I had to." #hitching #hitchhiking #travel #photography #portrait #florida  Just passed 2,000 miles. #hitchhiking #travel #travelblog  Made it. #keywest  Back to counting cars.

I just came from an audition for a part. That's why I'm dressed like this... I picked you up because you had a guitar, and I thought what guy would bother to carry a guitar if he's up to trouble. Unless there's an oozy in there!" #boston #hitchhiking  A couple from the yard sale said I should stay at their place tonight . They have ducks. #ducks #hitchhiking #connecticut  ...And we're back to tumbling down banks and jumping fences to get off the interstate. It was a good thing to be raised on a farm. #hitchhiking #newyork #briars  "I do a lot of hiking, and I always appreciated a ride." #hitchhiking #harrisburg  Finished the family potato harvest today. Hitchhiking north in two weeks. #garden #farm #potatoes  #hitchhiking #travel #travelblog #writing #typewriter  “Have you hitchhiked before?” “No, man.” “Not growing up in Haiti?” “No, in Haiti I just jump in somebody’s car. It’s not hitchhiking, not like this. We have cars built for giving rides. You take a pickup, put two benches in the back, and then anyone can jump in. There are too many rules here for that, man.” #hitchhiking #portrait #travel #travelblog #photography #wanderlust  “Sunday they told this story in church about a guy who was waiting for a visit from Jesus. A woman came by his house to ask for some help, and he said I’m sorry I’m busy. Later a man came, and he told him the same thing. When he finally got to heaven, he said ‘Jesus I thought you were coming,’ and he said ‘I did I came to you as a woman, as a man… Anyway, I was thinking about that story and I thought I gotta pick that guy up.” #hitching #hitchhiking #georgia #Jesus #travel #portrait  Bats - Gainesville, FL #bats  My friend's car rental gave him some safety tip... #hitchhiking  Burnt nose and a scratched cornea.

 Buffalo, NY #graffiti #mural #buffalo #newyork #music #hitchhiking #songwriting  I walked 24 miles today without holding up a thumb. The Mad River Valley was so lovely, the weather so perfect, I didn't want to pass a foot of it faster than I could walk. I know winter must come hard here in Vermont, but right now it is Eden. I strolled down the road eating grapes and apples from the branches overhead. #hitchhiking #hiking #vermont #madriver #walking  Surprised how much you can find to eat along the road. Wild grapes! #newhamphire #grapes #highway #hitchhiking #foraging #road #ontheroad  I'm a little confused. #hitchhiking #mountwashington  Portland Head Light Cape Elizabeth, ME  And it still feels like summer.  Then we made some music at a yard sale. #hitchhiking #connecticut  I'm not a big fan of the anti-human signs in PA. I found one intersection with one on every corner. What's a fella to do? Levitate? #crosswalk #pennsylvania #hitchhiking  Splitting wood with new friends at Downstream Project. Today I said goodbye and hitched to Hagerstown, MD. #firewood #hitchhiking #community  "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." #love #risk #hitchhiking  "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." #love #risk #hitchhiking  "Because you're going towards Black Mountain, and we're going to Black Mountain." "Also, It's a free day for us, so we have the time. I feel like other times I'd be in the car with someone else, and we would have picked up a hitchhiker but we were on a time schedule." #hitchhiking #asheville #travel #portrait #travelblog  "I'm having culture shock. I just got back from Europe a week ago. I met so many people that were kind to me - that would help me along and make my whole day. Plus, you seemed like a normal guy, and you needed help." Driver #44 #hitchhiking #florida #portrait #photography  "I like to help people. It gives you a sense of accomplishment. It gives you a sense of fulfillment. Put that in your book!" #hitchhiking #travel  Walking the everglades.  Planting spinach at Gladheart (Twelve Tribes) a community patterned after the early Christian church - Asheville, NC  And then I ran into the Governor. #vt  At the White Hart!
