'''''Hitchgathering''' is the name of a series of international hitchhiking gatherings held in Europe and Northern America [ [Hitchgathering# Past_events|since 2008]] .''
==Main Gathering Proposals==
Some years ago, a woman called Lisbeth accidentally bought an entire village in western Denmark. She made it into a country town and announced herself the sheriff. She is the only one living there, but various groups of people show up for visits in the village every summer. We are invited! The danish hitchhikers have been visiting a couple of times, I joined too, once, and we had a really good time. The Sheriff herself believes in letting things run on their own and let the country town be as the people that are inhabiting it at the moment. It is a ghost town playground with lots of room for creativity. Improvements of the place in any sense are welcome. Sheriff Lisbeth was a hitchhiker herself and enjoys both road stories and live music. She has one plea, if we are going to have the hitchgathering in country town; that we don't ask her for permission and directions, but figure it out ourselves - it's the wild west! I told her that's how it always is anyways. It would also be nice, if we can help making the place better when we're there. There is a saloon with a bar and a lot of rooms upstairs. We can use the saloon if it rains and the bar is a great place to hang out. It's also a ghost town bar, so it's just the building, we will have to bring our own beer. Otherwise, there's lots of room for tents and we can make fire pits wherever we want. There's drinking water in the saloon. Dumbsterdiving was good the last time I was around, but 10-20 km away, meaning you would have to hitchhike to get there. Sheriff Lisbeth really hopes that if we come, we can hold a big western party one night.
