Hi there! If you're into adventure/alternative travelling, then this is probably the right job for you! I'm thinking of publishing a book on the 'rule of thumb' and the art of hitchhiking, what to do to increase the chances of hitching a ride, and what to do when it seems like no one is stopping after hours and hours and how best to utilise those times. Basically, I want a factually simple, precise content with the sole purpose of motivating people to hitchhike and to guide them on how to do it. Simplicity is the peak of elegance, simple and precise knowledge in this department would work for me. More focus should be given on how to reduce the risks to minimum and how to make hitchhiking the safest as it can be. Also, a focus on discussion on whether it is easier hitchhiking with signs or not, and why and also discuss on what truly stops a lot of people from hitchhiking and even for the drivers to pick people up and how to overcome it. Some personal insights would be extremely helpful....
