Hitchhiking Coming Back into Fashion?

Last night i saw two separate corporately dressed hitchhikers looking for a ride out of the city during rush hour while I was on the way to class - i love it! Maybe it's Jack Kerouac or stories from my hippie parents about hitching rides to protest rallies that have romanticized my views of the freeloading traveler but I would love the country to turn back to a place where need takes precedence over want and the rides are shared (of course watching out for men with hooks for hands and not traveling alone as a single woman, or picking someone up while driving alone as a single woman, but still!)
