Ten Rules for Hitchhikers

1. Rule number 1. Traveling alone is boring. In addition, experience shows that for some reason, drivers are not very willing to pick up single drivers (excluding girls). The ideal combination for hitchhiking is a pair of "boyfriend + girl". Even better - "girl + girl". Drivers have more confidence in couples.

3. Rule number 2. Consequence of the first. Novice travelers make the same mistake: the girl slows down the car, and the guy hides somewhere in the bushes, jumping out like a jack-in-the-box. The result is obvious: starting abruptly, the driver picks up speed and disappears on the horizon. Do not do that. Two is always two.

6. Rule number 3. Three for hitchhiking is already a crowd. For a very simple reason: not every car has three empty seats. What about those who travel with a group? Break into groups of two people and arrange meetings at the next point along the route.

8. Rule number 4. It is best to brake cars on turns - there drivers slow down and look around. Of course, you can try your luck at gas stations and near roadside cafes - this is relatively effective, but there is much less romance.

11. Rule number 5. Don't be afraid to stop expensive cars. An experienced traveler will confirm: both the owner of a Lexus and the grandfather in an old Muscovite can give a lift with equal success.

14. Rule number 6. Calculate the time so as not to be on the track at night: at this time, almost no one stops. Besides, it's unsafe. The average speed of a hitchhiker is 50 km/h.

17. Rule number 7. If within half an hour (provided that the place is chosen correctly) no one has stopped - no luck. Change place. For some reason, it is enough to reach the next turn, and everything will change. Don't know why, but it works.

20. Rule number 8. The phrase "We are hitchhiking" means that no one is going to pay for the road. Drivers usually understand this well. But still, it’s worth immediately dotting all the i’s. There is no need for heartbreaking “we ourselves are not local” stories. Show your imagination. Or just smile again.

23. Rule number 9. They put you in a car. Truckers do this so as not to fall asleep - they often spend a day on the road with almost no rest. So entertain them with conversation. In other cases, act according to the situation: if the driver is silent and focused, it is better to be silent. Perhaps he does not need a companion - he stopped only to help you.

25. Rule number 10. The driver, as a rule, does not expect money from you. A simple and sincere "thank you" is what is expected of you. Don't be fooled by expectations.
