HomeHitchhiking AdventuresChart of 10 years of Hitchhiking Log in

The chart shows how many kilometers I hitchhiked every year for the last 10 years. Only the first year of 2005 doesn’t show accurately how far I hitchhiked that year for I started keeping records from August 2, 2005. The total distance to date is 223,042 kilometers. over a period of exactly 925 days in 3587 vehicles. The latter two figures should be exact but the distance traveled may have a small percentage of error. I’m trying to be as accurate as possible. I used to use Google Maps to measure distances but now I use an on-line application on http://www.mapfan.com/routemap/routeset.cgi which should be more accurate. This is a great app if you live in Japan and can read Japanese well enough to use it.

James Japan 10 years of hitchhking

Last year of 2015 was 12,749 kilometers (7968 miles) less than 2014 which was my record to date of 28,352 kilometers or 17,720 miles. The reason for this is I made far fewer trips to Aomori Prefecture. Will 2016 be a better year for me? I hope so. The number of trips has something to do with not only how much money I save, but how much income I can earn. You can see my income fell last year from the year before.
