It took [[User:N0id|n0id]] two hours to find a ride in August 2009. Without a basic knowledge of French it would have been much harder. Many trucks already had two drivers, only a few didn't. Truck drivers on the ferry told him that it was much harder to hitch a ride from Tangier to Algeciras, due to the drivers' fear of getting busted for drug-trafficking and the tight security at the port in Tangier. On the other side, security will let you sleep in the ''gare maritime'' in Tanger (New Port) if you arrive after 23:00 because there won't be any buses going to Tangier city anymore.
[[User:DamnthatTelevision|DamnthatTelevision]] got a ride with the first camion he saw, and crossed the straight with the Moroccan driver, who also bought dinner and let me sleep at his place in [[
Tangers]]. French was crucial, moroccan hospitality is legendary.
