That's awesome, I love stories like that.
& love it when a plan comes together.
Cause I do that sort of shit.
almost every time I end up becoming buddies with the person. Bringin' a big bag of sticky icky doesn't hurt either
I've never really had much of a problem getting a ride holding a board.
Missed the last bus once @ Coquitlam center & had to walk to Maple Ridge with gear in hand @ 2:30am. Got picked up by a girl by herself & driven right to my door.
After she picked me up, I even told her she shouldn't pick up guys driving alone, especially @ 2:30am.
She said "But you had a snowboard, I knew you weren't a murderer"
I'm big on Karma though, & I never drive by a hitch-hiker.
Glad it all worked out for you.
More people should do it, & don't worry, it has a way of workin' out.
