Would you encourage your WWOOFers to hitchhike?

Aug 16, 2019

These three young French girls had big fun and big success with ‘faire du stop’ around Shropshire, only once waiting longer than 15 minutes for a lift. Hitching meant they could get to town and day-time events when otherwise they’d have been quite farm-bound (one of them couldn’t cycle).

So, do you encourage your WWOOFers to hitchike? It is – after all – a very sustainable mode of transport.

Or do you agree with one of the female drivers who picked them up in that it’s dangerous, even if there’s more than one person?

Do you think it’s risky for guys as well as gals? Will it only work in very rural communities? Would it work in your region? Will only young (French) girls get picked up…?!

We’d love to hear from you – editor@wwoof.org.uk

Barn to be wild

An opportunity to live in the Brecon Beacons Ten years ago I bought a dilapidated stone barn high on a hill in mid-Wales. I had been visiting the area for several years, staying in my campervan, walking and exploring. I started to look for somewhere to make a more...
