Hitchhiking Planet

Yay, two Planets in one weekend. After having set up Planet Hospitality I decided to also set up Hitchhiking Planet.

Crashing at Morgan's in Montreal

amylin and I have been crashing at Morgan's (6 1/2) in Montreal since Thursday.  We hitchhiked here from Northampshire, MA, where we stayed with Joe. We had left a bit later than planned so it was not easy to get to Montreal.

I'm not giving up yet, though. I think it was about how random people meeting and sharing - which is what hitchhiking basically is about - will have a very positive effect on society, i.e.


Hitchwiki is a wiki about hitchhiking. It grew out of another wiki about hitchhiking. At the end of 2006, when I was at the CS Collective in New Zealand, MrTweek and I decided to start a new independent wiki and Hitchwiki was born.
