Hi! I just fixed the link from your profile page. Wiki text can be a bit difficult to edit at times but here's a simple cheat sheet. Welcome to Hitchwiki and thanks for all the edits on Scotland! -Mikael (talk) 15:19, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks! More edits to come soon :) I'm quite new to Wiki editing but will try to learn!

By the way, is it possible to change my user name to a different one? :) Nina

Nina, I've updated the page on Maastricht, with the new northbound spot near Stadionplein. I've also removed a few of your notes, notably that it's faster to bike out of Maastricht than to walk, since this is generic, universal info and knowledge, but thanks for the advice. I've also used my bike in the past to get to the other side of town. I also removed your "Maastricht is a black hitch-hiking hole" note since it is not. Rather recently I have hitched out of M northbound over ten times. On my most frequent spot (spot #3 in the list) my long term average is 17 minutes / 34 km on 42 departures. For north recommended sign is simply "A2". From Maastricht deeper into Germany I generally do the N278 (easier thanks to my starting location, and avoids the A79 / A76 junction and Heerlen), turn left on N281 (wait <5 minutes standing right in front of the roundabout), leave that car at the N281/A76 intersection and walk 1.5 km to the (border) petrol station Esso Tienbaan (the true starting point of a longer trip). --Fverhart (talk) 13:50, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the update and the valuable info! I haven't been to Maastricht since last October, so when I was there I only used spot #2 to hitchhike north (during 2017). Maybe I was doing something wrong... Anyway, the new one sounds really good! I'll probably try it out as soon as I'm back. OlcheMaith (talk) 00:37, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
