  • Welcome back, everybody.

  • I'm sorry.

  • We're having some technical difficulties.

  • I guess there's a lot of traffic on the four G signal out here.

  • Once again, I'm on.

  • Let me start this all over again because this is the second time I'm explaining this.

  • I'm on route three at the intersection of route one around three in Central Kumamoto.

  • And I'm hitchhiking here because I thought this would be the best spot to pick up people going towards Fukuoka.

  • Um, the Kyushu Highway Expressway is that way.

  • About 30 20 kilometers.

  • So everybody who's living in the city is gonna be coming this way.

  • I've already made the sign I'm gonna put.

  • Put the camera down here so you can see me.

  • I'm not sure the signal is going to go, but hopefully we stay live for a while and you could see if somebody picks me up in the next 20 minutes or so.

  • But here's the sign that I made You could see, says Loca.

  • It's important.

  • Have a smile on the matter where you are.

  • Uh, this isn't the ideal place to hitchhike because you want to be in a spot where cars get stopped.

  • This red lane you see here that's actually a bus lane.

  • And when the bus comes, nobody can pulls in here.

  • But my thinking is if somebody really wants to pick me up, we could pull into the 7 11 here and tap me on the shoulder or let me know I if they could take me to put book or someplace nearby, be really appreciative.

  • In fact, if you're driving to put Broken how guys, please pick me up and take me to look.

  • Uh, so I get that before nightfall.

  • It's 3 p.m. here in.

  • Okay, let's do this.

  • My bags down here.

  • I have a go pro camera here is well, record this later editing.

  • So wish me luck, everybody.

  • I won't be able to see your questions.

  • Makayla eyes, If you're watching this Micaela come down and pick me up because the people are commenting that you live in Fukuoka and that's true.

  • But I didn't coordinate anything with her.

  • Let's just survive today, All right, Somebody.

  • I'm already having problems because of the car coming through.

  • Now the car is gone.

  • We're good to go.

  • We're good to roll, folks.

  • I don't think the motorbikes could take me right here.

  • Come the cards For me, it was a little break in the traffic now.

  • So until the signal turns, I can I can see your questions.

  • All right, now, I can't.

  • The signal change.

  • Here they come.

  • And the bus took my spot.

  • Andrew comes another bus.

  • You could see this isn't the ideal spot to hitchhike.

  • And there's another bus right there.

  • But after that, it looks like it's all clear.

  • Every car that goes by is a potential car that I'm missing the chance to get to ride with.

  • So excited.

  • I wonder who's gonna pick me up this time.

  • Last time it was a really lovely girl.

  • I think she was.

  • Such was 24 years old and she worked in Kakashi Much picked me up the day before yesterday.

  • A guy was working and he picked me up and drop me up here.

  • All right, we're in the clear.

  • That car that just went by you could see the number plates.

  • The license plates has said Fukuoka on it.

  • Not everyone's going to stop.

  • Here comes some more traffic.

  • He apologized for not picking me up.

  • There's a couple of buses going through.

  • It's good because if I keep the sign of high, people concede more clearly from a distance that if I hold it down.

  • But the problem with that is my arms get so tired holding it up, I I'll be okay for about 30 45 minutes and then it gets really, um, really, I got these buses going by.

  • One more try.

  • Okay?

  • The problem is, I missed about 10 cars that just took a left onto here.

  • Us.

  • That's so nice that you ever gave me a nice nice about just either respect to our because I'm really silly.

  • It's hard to tell with right here they come.

  • Okay, take a break.

  • The traffic's coming again.

  • Every single Carla goes by its potential.

  • Carly could take me to Fukuoka, even this little break in the traffic.

  • It's so funny to see people's faces when they go by.

  • Some of the more apologetic.

  • Some of them are taking pictures of me, some of them going this to apologize.

  • Some of them are laughing, but most of them are laughing, and that's that.

  • That's sort of the good side of the hitchhiking thing.

  • It's entertainment for some of these people just for a second.

  • Barely coming in.

  • Your people won't even look at me at all.

  • Don't totally ignore it because I don't still ignore me and look away like this because they don't wanna feel guilty for not picking me up.

  • And that's an interesting side cultural thing.

  • Maybe it's pretty.

  • It is fun in a way, starting to taste the exhaust.

  • Maybe the bad side of hitchhiking would never think about how much, you know, exhausted hiking gas were springing it, but part of the risks being on the road.

  • Here you go.

  • Hey, did I lose you guys?

  • All right, Phone still good.

  • All right, P.

  • Keep at it.

  • You could see the other way.

  • Let me turn you around just for a second.

  • You can see that's what I'm up against That's what I see.
