A poetry contest, We Pick Up Hitchhikers, is featured at the zine's site.
Quote From The Site
"A lot of people have a romanticized idea of the road’s freedom and homelessness, and that needs to be dispelled. Some do opt to live their lives this way, others simply travel through unconventional means. To each their own, but no matter what, this is a difficult way to live, just as all ways of living"
