New Hampshire

New Hampshire, US, is a hitchhiking-friendly state, especially during the autumn when there is a lot of traffic coming through from the South to the North to observe the changing colors of the leaves.

Law

265:40 - Pedestrians Soliciting Rides Or Business

I. No person shall stand on the travelled portion of a roadway for the purpose of soliciting a ride, employment, business or contributions from the occupant of any vehicle.

New Hampshire is pretty clear. Stay off the traveled portion when hitchhiking and you will be fine.

Heading West (to Vermont), or North (to Canada)

101 West and I-93 North, around Manchester and Concord, are the major arteries that connects New Hampsire and Vermont. The quickest way to Vermont (or North to Montreal), from this point is to try and get onto I-89 N from I-93 N. There is a switch-off around Concord, with a rest stop that makes finding rides in this direction easier.

Experiences

"I was hitching East at exit 6 of 93-north. I was looking for a ride on 101 East and it was cold outside! This was Mid-December and it was about 9F/-13C out. After failing for about an hour I started to worry about the condition of my nose so I went to a local Dunkin' Donuts to warm up. There was a city official there eating and on my way back out he stopped me and told me the best places to grab a ride East. I love this state." -- one of the TKL Hitchers

Cruised through in a couple rides along US-2 back in 2012. Hitching was easy from my limited experience. Plenty of trees and hills. Thewindandrain (talk) 00:00, 2 June 2013 (CEST)
