I've finally decided I'm getting out. The town I'm living in has nothing left to offer me and I'm going to leave town within the next week via hitchhiking. I plan on making stops in NYC and Chicago, as well as Seattle before heading to San Francisco, where I plan to finally get my music career off the ground. It's going to be hard to get myself established with very little money and I'll probably have to live on the streets for at least a few weeks but I'm ready and willing for any adventure life throws at me. I will take $80, an acoustic guitar, clothes, water, some peanut butter and bread, a necklace I can pawn for about $500 if need be and a hitchhiking sign with NW on it. Wish me luck, and anyone with experience or tips, I'd like to hear from you. Oh and I'm 18.

EDIT:There has been a major change of plans. I have reconciled with those around me somewhat and I plan on waiting till summer so I can pay off my car and be a little better prepared. I will lose out on some of the adventure of hitchhiking but it will be a bit safer and, if I do wind up homeless for a period of time, atleast I could sleep in my car.

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Possibly "The Fusion". That will all be worked out in the next few weeks.

It's really not, thats just an image created by the media over a few isolated incidents. My cousin has hitched over 700 rides in the US over the last 10 years.

This story belongs in a Cinderella Storyesque movie.

You're going to end up on the streets. Life is not some Disney Channel Original Movie, and your dreams aren't going to magically come true.

Good luck though. I hope you make it, but to be honest, you won't.
And if ever You come near, I will hold up high a mirror.

No, I lost my job a few weeks ago, and I can't save because
1. I need to get out NOW
2. I think this can be a great experience for me.

Yeah but what would be the fun in that? He's looking for an adventure and to explore what he wants in life while he's still young.

I think you should take a little more than $80, Take a a few bottles of water too. Refill them at gas stations and stuff. I think it's really cool what you're doing.

I guess I'm just a free spirit. I may go to college eventually but I just don't feel it's the best thing to do right now, I need to live life.

Ok, understandable, "living life" is great, but you're basically screwing yourself over.

You can live life just as easily when you're a college student.
