Traveling South out of Denver can be difficult at best. RidgeGate Parkway (where Cabella's is located) is the last accessible onramp heading South (by bus) and not hitchhiker-friendly. 1 exit to the North is Lincoln, which has a decent pullover area. However, the entire area is brand-new and the expensive SUV's are far more likely to give you cash than a ride. Consider Greyhound to Colorado Springs if you're in a hurry. If you don't mind waiting a day or two for a ride, food & money can be easily gotten in the area and there are still plenty of fields to camp in. The library does have an upstairs family bathroom to get cleaned up in and the hotel has free breakfast.
If possible, a ride to the truck stop on Baptist Road in Monument (just North of Colorado Springs) is an excellent hitch spot, making it easy to get a ride to Albuquerque and beyond. Otherwise, expect long waits and short rides into New Mexico. NOTE: This is my second time hitching from this spot(Lincoln Ave. in Denver). The last time I'd waited 2-3 days before a sympathetic pastor finally stopped and bought me a bus ticket to Houston after seeing me there for so long. - jsplts
