Ankara is the capital of Turkey, surrounded by a big ring road.
Get dropped off at any exit on the ring road and you should be able to hitch to either a metro/bus stop or if you are lucky all the way to downtown.
In Kizilay (city center), there is the main dolmus and city-bus station...there you ask around for a bus to Yaskament, but the buses going there leave about 500meters away from that dolmus station, so you just ask around a little bit (it´s across the street, when you cross the main park int he city center). The bus goes about 30minutes and brings you to the start of the highway to Istanbul.
Here you should actually just take a Dolmus going in direction Kirikkale...if you check it on the map, from there you can easily hitch-hike up north to Samsun. On the part of the highway from Ankara to Kirikkale there is every 500meters (thats not a lie!!) a gasoline station, but just check the highway and wave with your hand (or thumb), trucks stop easier, than asking people on the gasoline station!
Actually you just go by metro, or dolmus to the main bus station called A.S.T.I, then you can actually already see the highway, if you turn right you can see the signs saying "Konya" and Kolbasi... you just walk along the highway...which is only about 2kms, from there you can hitch easily out of the ring of ankara which has the junction in Golbasi, or you just take a Dolmus to Golbasi for 2TLR, the dolmus stop is a crossover of the highway, where the dolmuses (?) stop....
