Every hitchhiker needs a buddy. And for years, mine was the righteous, Benjamin Thompson. Ben and I had many hitchhiking adventures. Can I tell you my favorite story?
|Benjamin Robert Thompson Esq.|
This is roughly the conversation that followed:
Ben: "I've always wanted to hitch a ride on a train."
Britt: "Yeah. That would be totally amazing."
Ben:(gesturing toward the moving train) "There's one now."
In the next few moments, Ben and I jogged alongside the train and climbed on. What followed was a three-hour journey through the mountains crouched on the platform between two rail cars, and hanging on for dear life. When the train finally stopped, Ben and I scrambled off and looked around. We had no idea where we were or how we were going to get back home. So naturally, we found the nearest road and stuck out our thumbs.
