Hitchhiking in the Catskills

My friend Lenka (Czech Rep.) and I (U.S.) are working at a summer camp for kids with developmental disabilities (Camp Loyaltown AHRC) right now. At home neither of us uses cars that much - we cycle. Lenka was telling me how much safer and easier it is to hitchhike in the Czech Republic. I had never done it before - been dying to. So we took a day off and thumbed our way to Woodstock.

Hitchhiking was so much fun! And really, one of the highlights was the little stops inbetween rides - being dropped in the middle of Catskill nowhere with mountains and creeks to swim in...

I can't wait to do it again. To anyone who's looking for a friendly place to thumb around and have a really green adventure - come to NY!
