Talk:Keeping track of your rides

From Hitchwiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page is a feeble attempt to start a discussion about what you might/need to do to keep track of your rides. If there is sufficient input to this, I might provide a detailed explanation as to what I have been doing to keep track of my rides, ever since I started doing some serious hitchhiking in 1980.

I don't think I would be patient and precise enough to do it myself, but I've always been wondering how people meticulously keep track of all their rides. So, yes please, I'm curious! :) guaka 16:19, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
I don't know, but that seems a tiny bit over the top to me... I mean, you write down what info you think is important, and that's it?--Zenit 19:16, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
I like over the top when it's got something to do with hitchhiking. It's nice to have anything related to hitchhiking covered on Hitchwiki :) guaka 21:58, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
Fair point :-) and don't get me wrong, no objection against writing something about it... just seemed a bit, say, trivial to me.--Zenit 23:16, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
I have an analog logbook and a pencil. i write down for every single lift: from/to, age and gender of the driver or people in the car (sometimes you have guess age, so its not accurate), waiting time, nationality of driver and vehicle type (car, van, truck, caravan) and people hitchhiking with me. after finishing a trip, i count the kilometers with google maps and write kilometers, number of lifts and from/to in my hitchwiki log. --Quarim 08:16, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
