|Meet fellow hitchhikers on Trustroots|
Albany, Oregon, north of Eugene and south of Salem on I-5, is notorious for being one of the worst towns to try to hitchhike out of. Although there are many gas stations within walking distance to the on- and off-ramps for I-5, the Albany locals tend to be spiteful and not trusting of hitchhikers, due to rumors of crimes committed by people posing as hitchhikers in this town.
Don't let this detour you, however, as Albany residents readily pick locals up and will pick you up as well if you do not look mangy. Exits 234A/234B provide the best access to on and off-ramps.
