Default Hitchhiking Kelowna (or maybe Vancouver) to Prince Rupert

Anyone going? LOL.

I'm wondering if it's possible.. and if not how can I get from Southern BC to the Queen Charlotte Islands for super cheap??? Like... really cheap. Greyhound is $200 and I can't afford that. Boo.

Let me know, thank you!!!!

I hitched all over Nicaragua and LOVED it, but I wouldnt hitch alone if I were you... 2 people is a good number, and 3 works... Piece of advice, carry pepper spray in your pocket just in case!!!
Also, maybe check out rideshare on craigslist... Usually you just have to split gas.....
Good luck

Hey there Columbia
I really really really dont recomend you hitchhike that route, esecially by yourself. I really cant stress this enough.
From Prince George to Prince Rupert there have been dozens upon dozens of girls who have gone missing hitchhiking that route over the years. There is a huge private investigation going on into all the missing women, so I really would advise you to find another way.
For more info google or reserch "The Highway of Tears"
Good luck eh, and if your in a pinch in Prince George (where I live) give me a shout,message me on this maybe we can get a few pints or something if you have a couple pennies left over
