How to hitchhike to the Yukon
There’s a sort of unwritten contract when it comes to hitchhiking. You’re being given a free ride to wherever, and in exchange you’re company, you’re a sounding board, you’re a conversational partner, you’re a way to make the miles go by a little faster. I listen to Todd talk about his friend’s stag night, I listen to Todd talk about fishing regulations, I listen to Todd talk about how much he loves Eric Clapton. I offer affirmation and light talk while Nic sleeps in the back.
