What is a Hitchgathering?
The hitchgathering is an annual meet up where hithchikers, rubber tramps, train hoppers and wanderers from all walks of life come together to share stories, have a good time, and learn. Everyone is welcome. We also aim to promote a better view of travelers and our presence to the public.
