The pros and cons of hitchhiking

My name is Andrea McGuire, and I’m a folklore graduate student at Memorial University. I’m currently seeking interviews with past and present hitchhikers in Newfoundland for my master’s thesis research.

I’m interested in talking to people who used to hitchhike, people who hitchhike in rural communities, people who hitchhike nationally/internationally, and drivers who pick up hitchhikers. Each interview will take approximately one hour, and will be drawn on as I write my thesis.

Do you have a hitchhiking story to share? Please get in touch with me by phone at (709) 771-2216, or via email at
