(*)means I only hitched through the country
*'''Most distance covered with a single driver: 883 km'''
July 26 & 27, 2015: Ukrainian trucker in a Bulgarian truck who took me almost all the way from the Georgian-Turkish border at Sarpi to Bolu on my way to Istanbul within two days. Got this ride after a desperate, 2.5h wait near the border. Stayed a night in Samsun with a friend and then hitched this guy completely randomly again the next day near Merzifon.
*'''Longest single ride: 516 km'''
July 18 & 19, 2015: 'twas the morning of Bayram... Samsun to Batumi - Georgian trucker, whose truck kept breaking down, while the guy had to find an ATM that would accept AmEx and a place to top up his phone - needless to say, it took 14 hours and I arrived to Batumi at 3 am(but I got there and that's what matters :)
*'''Longest wait: 2.5 hrs'''
July 26, 2015: Turkish side of the Turkish-Georgian border near Sarpi - paid off though, as the trucker I hitched was going to Istanbul(check above)
*'''Highest speed: 180 kph'''
August 8, 2015: In a 50 kph zone (although this speed limit wasn't really justified in that particular spot) Between Uzunköprü and Edirne, Turkey, brand new Skoda Rapid.
