hitchhiking tales

When I was a young man I was foolish and not afraid of anything In the summer of 1975 I took a Greyhound bus across the country when my bus pass was stolen I hitchhiked across the country and for two and 1/2 months I traveled across the country meeting all sorts of very strange people experiencing the underbelly of American Society now that I am 65 and I think back upon those days I am horrified that I did that because now that I'm old man I'm much more prudent and much more careful and much more afraid but back then being young and foolish I did what a lot of young and foolish people do boldly go into the world without a plan just seeing where life took me that made all the difference in the world
