If you’ve ever stuck your thumb out to catch a ride, you understand the highs and lows of hitchhiking. Passing cars, sandy highway shoulders, cardboard signs, and a belief that mental telepathy can lure cars to slow down are tools of the trade. After hitchhiking in Canada and Arizona, Graham Waugh thought he’d easily catch a ride from Needles to Joshua Tree. He didn’t account for the nearly deserted 100 odd miles on California’s highway 95. He scrawled “Canadian” on his last piece of cardboard, and only then did he discovered something wonderful.
