Hi Tom, I'm never giving journeys names, but I got this line in my head and thought it was a nice one: "Let's hitch the road, Frank (...and don't you come back, no more, no more, no more, no more!)". :D Thought it's a nice one. And it's time for me to hit the road, I have not hitchhiked for a (symbolic) seven weeks. BTW, Linda (cs ploenk) visited Isle of Man a couple of weeks ago, too late now. --Fverhart 10:51, 21 August 2008 (CEST)

Hey Tom, correct version is "Jedzie Pan do Wrocławia?". I think you know it, but in any case... I really like your version though :) Mirto 13:09, 1 August 2008 (CEST)

Hey Tom! Welcome on hitchwiki, and thanks for your contributions. Maybe you have some more information to share about hitching in Europe? --MrTweek 08:51, 16 May 2007 (CEST)

Hey there Tom. I currently live in Prague and I'm planning a trip to Montenegro and back in September/October. I'll be departing on September 10th (or thereabouts) and am hoping to make the trip as long as possible. I've never hitched before so would be happy to meet up and share tips on the road at any point if you're in the area. Later! Myshkin 15:33, 22 August 2007 (CEST)

OK no worries, have a great trip! Drop me a note if you need anything in Prague or fancy a beer or four. Myshkin 16:00, 28 August 2007 (CEST)


The hitch is an annual event with journeys to Prague or Morocco. Minimum sponsorship is an easy £300. Check the website under "events" for more information. Carl 00:12, 31 July 2007 (CEST)


We don't really have a policy about this, but MrTweek and I noticed your great additions and decided to make you into a sysop :) Check project:administrators to read (a little bit) more about this. Guaka 21:08, 7 August 2007 (CEST)

Map of Israel

Hey Tom,

No, I don't know of any such map. I would guess that a simple Lonely Planet or something like that. I would recommend that you ask someone with more experience, for instance the Israeli group on Couchsufing:

Good luck, and remember, if you need a place to stay, I recommend using CouchSurfing. :) Volland 10:10, 4 December 2007 (CET)

Why do you work on Hitchwiki?

Hey Tom, I'm curious to know, why you work on Hitchwiki?  :) guakasite, wikitalk 12:14, 3 September 2008 (CEST)

Been everywhere already?

Tom! Nice to meet you here again :-) I see we hitched a lot of similiar places, with Israel being one of the more interesting ones :-) Tot ziens & head ood? --jurgen somewhere in September 2008 (CEST)


Hi! Your user page category has been changed to Category:Hitchhikers in the Isle of Man because from now on this (along with the old Category:Hitchhikers) will be a standard categorization for hitchhikers on (see this discussion here for the reasons of doing so). If for some reason you don't want to be categorized by country, feel free to delete country category on your page leaving only a standard Category:Hitchhikers. We hope you don't mind, though.

Happy hitching,

The hitchwiki team

Possible improvements

Hi Tom, I have altered afew entries around the island and will improve on things like the west/Peel as the weeks progress. I would like to know how to get to put the map on a page like Dalby. ie isert map etc. I put a hitchhiking point on the other page but it was so slow I am not sure it actually went into the system or not. I'll check Tuesday. I thought of a couple of ideas for the website that I would like to explain with you:

1, Why not have a slight point on the ""thumb-sign" indicating roughly which "-bound" the waypoint is for/ heading to. i.e. the arrow would indicate the 8 points: n,s,e,west and perhaps north-east, south-west etc. 2, I REALLY think this whole website is about teaming people up with potential hitch-drivers. To that end you should be able to click on a thumb and let anyone travelling through that environ know that there is a potential lift in operation. Giving ETA's of when they will arrive perhaps? This really calls into question the legality of road-users but the website could punt a profitable sideline in getting civilian-check to see whether they have had a crash in the last 5 years or so. I think it is about £30 a go for a police check. These could be done from a central source with a fee for the admin. 3, What do you think about markers for the hitchhiking spots on the road to let the person hitching and also the drivers know that this is a hitchwiki point. Good advertising and abit safer than ad-hoc hitching. I understand that most hitchers move alswell as hitching, but this gives a recognised location for picking up somebody. Could go wifi with button or have i over-dosed the problem? The real question is what is the sign going to be on the ground or on a pole (i guess)? 4, When do i get another pint, chai tea is getting boring.

thanx. --Manx1979 23:46, 20 September 2010 (CEST)

Hi, thanks for the message! I'm hitching the UK right now, really don't have much online time, thanks for the questions and I'll come back to them when I return to the IOM at the beginning of October, OK? (Which answers question 4...) --Tom 10:55, 21 September 2010 (CEST)
