Nebraska has been one of the easiest Midwest states to hitch from my experience. Police frequently offer rides and I have never been bullied or lied to about the law. There are a lot of stoners in Nebraska due to the decriminalization of marijuana and many of them will offer you a ride and a toke. - Thewindandrain 0:49:08, 6 March 2012 (CET)
"Nebraska has been one of the toughest states that I've hitchhiked through. In Omaha there is very little room for cars to pull over and there are few people that go west of Lincoln so it's best to try and get a ride all the way through to Colorado. My longest wait time ever was in Lincoln where I was stuck for 2 days." - AlexKnoch 5 May 2022
