Yesterday, I picked up my first hitch hiker in my entire life. I’ve never had the guts to before. Heading for Newcastle, Alan was looking for a lift on the Newell Hwy.

I even asked him if he was a crazy murderer type. He confirmed he wasn’t. That was good enough for me. We cruised down to Moree.

The photo was taken on my phone. I will confirm that the HTC Desire has the worst camera I’ve ever had the opportunity to use.

It was nice to have some company on the road for a while.
