13th January 2014 There is a new book about hitch-hiking: American Eyeball.

6th January 2014 The Dutch site mentioned below has added tiny portraits of seven older-than-average hitchhikers.

21st December 2013 Due to the Ice Hockey World Championship in Minsk 2014, entering Belarus visa-free from 25th April to 31st May is possible [1]. A regular visa costs from 60€ to 160$ . The tickes are available from 91.000BYR (~7€).

14th December 2013 Hitchingit.com has gone live as of a few hours ago in the intent of replacing digihitch.com. After a long battle of empty promises and sabotage, it is intended to fill the gap that has existed since digihitch began losing features and users since digihitch's original owner, Salman, passed away in 2010. Digihitch, which is now a forum and skeleton of the original site, is expected to shut down for good in early 2014. Hitchingit is still a work in progress, but all are encouraged to join the forums and begin submitting content.

1st December 2013 A new project in the Netherlands has come to life to promote hitchhiking: www.nederlandlift.nl.

9th November 2013 We're organizing a festive gathering for hitchhikers (and non-hitchhikers) in France next July. Are you European and between 18 and 30 years old? If you want to help organize this you can apply for an EVS scholarship that will feed and lodge you and even comes with pocket money.

23rd September 2013 Started by some of the folks that brought you Trashwiki and Hitchwiki, Nomadwiki is a new wiki with info and tips for nomads (and other travelling folk) about shoestring budget traveling. Here you'll find out about free camping, no 5 star hotels, not for tourists!

31st August 2013 - guaka (talk) started Moneyless.org, a website with a lot of information about living without or much less money.

30th August 2013 We had some severe technical issues last week. The wiki is back up and running, but some content got lost unfortunately.

8th August 2013 Canada begins distributing thousands of hitchhiking posters in a new harm reduction campaign hoping to reduce the dangers of hitchhiking and track down those who assault hitchhikers. Among the areas the material will be distributed is the infamous Highway of Tears.

1st May 2013 Bence and pite did a classic route hitchhiking. From some amateur videoshots a 2 minute movie has been made about the Moscow-Saint Petersburg trip. Hope it will encourage other hitchhikers to do more and more youtube clips about their rides.
