The trip to Trondheim takes one day.
Around IKEA (Furuset] is an area where most trucks start. There is a petrol station on the [[E6]] direction North which can be reached walking from metro station "Trosterud", East of the centre (lines 1 or 2, direction Ellingsrudåsen). The metro in Oslo is called the T. From the stop Trosterud you go out, to the left, left again down the hill, over the footbridge and continue down and you are behind the station.
:[[User:abstorz|abstorz]] was able to hitch a ride onto the motorway behind the tunnel in the area of Etterstad, but it can't be bad to get even further out of the city. Once on the motorway everything went fine.
=== South towards [[Göteborg]] {{E|6}} and [[Stockholm]] {{E|18}} ===
If you want to go south-east on the [[E6]] take metro line 3 to "Mortensrud" and get off at the last station, then cross the bridge over metro track and walk for about 300 meters. You will enter petrol station on motorway E6. Ask drivers there. Very good spot!
You can also take the regional train going "Ski" and get off at "Nordstrand" station, one stop after Oslo-S. Once at Nordstrand, turn left and go down the little hill. The large road with a lot of traffic is the [[E18]]. You can walk about 5-10 minutes in the direction of Oslo (turning right) to the Ulvøya Island crossroad. There is a bus stop right after a traffic light and you can get picked up quite easily. Have a sign and avoid anyone going in the direction of [[Stockholm]].
Alternatively you may want to try Esso gas station (diesel is cheaper there so lots of people fills up there and other advantage is there is a MC D. right next to it). To get there, take subway to Hellerud, turn right into Smalvollveien and walk till you get to Esso. Some might find useful to know that there seem to be fewer ticket controls on that line.
Please note that even if you are headed to Stockholm, there is so little traffic on the [[E18]] that you better go South to [[Göteborg]] via [[E6]] and then East to [[Stockholm]] via [[Jönköping]].
=== West towards [[Bergen]] ===
=== From Oslo (Rygge) Airport ===
Oslo (Rygge) is an airport located about 75 km South of Oslo, on the [[E6]] direction [[Göteborg]]. To reach Oslo via HH, you simple need a sign for Oslo and you can either hitch from the airport or walk about 1,5 km to (North direction, along the motorway) the Rygge on-ramp where local traffic passes at the roundabout. The first petrol station is a few kilometres North, around Moss. From there it's rather easy to get a direct ride to Oslo.
Yes, the airport is small, so traffic is light. When you come out of the terminal building; the motorway in front of you is the E6, and Oslo (North) is to the right. I walked the one mile along the airport service road (hitching without success)and then hitched from the roundabout.
