    Hi! I am planning to hitchhike and Couch Surf my way to South America in the coming months. My plans are definitely more so for the adventurous type. I am calling this my "journey of fate" as I plan to not make any strictly defined plans other than exploring northern South America on a really tight budget.

    The two main options that I am considering are:
    1. Starting in my home state of California and hitchhiking as far as I can go through Mexico and all the way to South America.
    2. Taking an affordable flight further south, perhaps to Costa Rica, and heading south from there.

    I am very flexible and open to other ideas as long as it is on a budget! I graduated from my university last year and I am looking for an adventure before I officially enter the adult world. It would be great to have company along the way! Please let me know if you are interested or have and questions.

    This is a pretty odd post considering this is a SEA forum :)

    Yes, and I noticed that people on occasion post things about unrelated areas and often find interested parties. And it worked, so I guess it's not that odd after all!

    I am planning on leaving in November. I actually received a few private messages and have found an amazing travel companion but we are open to someone joining us along the way :)
