Hitching across Britain.

From http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/the-hitcher-simon-usborne-takes-to-the-road-847716.html:

"My mission, one I'm beginning to regret accepting, is this: in today's Britain, in an age when a coach ticket can cost less than a piece of cardboard and a marker pen – and when the fear of violent stranger crime is high – is it still possible to traverse the length of the country with only a backpack, a sign and an extended thumb?"

All I can say is that it got much more difficult to do this in the States long, long ago. At least for me. Hitchhikers in America were an endangered species decades back.
