Hey there! I'm planning to do a 2-3 month roadtrip across the States/Canada in spring next year and am wondering if anyone can give me some tips on staying safe or let me know your experiences of a solo roadtrip. I'll be a single 22 year old female travelling alone, which is what worries me a bit (worries my dad more so). I was planning to do some camping and what not to save on money, but I've heard that can be very dangerous depending on where you are. Thoughts, feedback??? Thanks so much!
Also, I'm wondering if anyone's ever done a solo trip and met up with people through ride share boards to give them rides. How did this work out? Ever had any bad luck/experiences? Or good ones? I wouldn't mind trying to find company on the road for a few hours if someone needs a ride along my route, but I wouldn't just pick up a random hitch hiker on the road. Wonder if the ride share forums are safer?
