I am Drew, 24 years old and was released from the Navy recently. I am currently living in Portland, OR area and attending Lewis & Clark College.
I began hitchhiking in April of 2013 as a means to travel the country for cheaply and to find good people everywhere. Through the next five months I hitchhiked nearly 10,000 miles through more than 30 states in the contiguous United States.
When on the road, I like finding myself in pockets of society that are removed from 'mainstream' America and finding out what local life is for others. I also enjoy backpacking through national parks. Zion in Utah and Grand Teton in Wyoming are my favorites to date.
I am on hitchhiking hiatus now due to being a full-time student, but I fully intend on resuming sooner or later.
