If you want to hitchhike out of Washington DC toward Richmond, take a yellow subway line toward Huntington station and get off at Pentagon station. From there take a bus 21A, 7A, 7F as closer as u can to the King street, and then walk along toward 395 highway, you will pass a gas station and you can start to hitchhike before you will see a sign saying Richmond. That's where you need to go. It's enough place for a car to stop and the traffic is not too crowded.
If you are wanting to go to Annapolis or the Delmarva peninsula, you can just catch the orange line to new carollton as it will get you right next to a fairly busy ramp onto the interstate 50 http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Annapolis&sll=37.055177,-77.783203&sspn=5.776527,11.634521&gl=us&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Annapolis,+Anne+Arundel,+Maryland&ll=38.946209,-76.86106&spn=0.010998,0.022724&t=h&z=16 or you can catch one of the buses that leaves from there and goes to Bowie, which is what i did, but there is much less traffic, so i would recommend the first option
