Home > Travel > Hitchhiking > 11/19/15

I’m awake just after 5am. I had pulled the All Weather Blanket out but it didn’t seem to be as cold as it has been. My broken tooth is on my mind and I’m thinking about Mexico and dental appointments.

I’d have to get a passport and use all of my savings to be broke with fixed teeth. Or I’d have to hole up for December and write my ass off to have some kind of income for the next year.

You know, that thing I was supposed to do while house sitting in Providence.

So instead of pouring out the last of the vodka like I was going to, I drink. I pass out. I pack and start to walk out but the first group of fishermen heading out pick me up and drive me to Searchlight. IDK if they can smell the alcohol on me but I’m definitely not sober.

In McDonald’s I charge everything nd hesitate to leave. I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m not staying here.

I walk 95 south with my thumb out. Sunglasses off, big smile. 10-15 minutes later a black Corvette picks me up.

His name is Tom, and he swore that if he’d ever seen anyone hitchhiking on this stretch that he’d pick them up. His radiator blew in Searchlight yers ago and he tried to hitch to Bullhead City to his girlfriend. No one picked him up for the longest time. 8 hours I think he said.

He used to manage the marina in Cottonwood Cove. Between that and some other chit chat he drops me off in Laughlin. Even points out a place to camp.

Laughlin. I don’t know what to do. Arizona is right across the bridge. Temps are supposed to be better here by 10 degrees. Maybe hole up here instead of Boulder City for December and write.

If I can find a cheap place to stay for the month. Hopefully something with wifi.
