Hitch hike. Another thing they can't do now. In the late 50s and early 60s I hitch hiked everywhere in Ontario with trips to Michigan, New York and elsewhere. It was great fun. Even though I lived with my Mother, I never considered my self a bum. I had a full time job! I was making $50.00 a week!
Even in the mid 60s, I was only making $425.00 a month and still did not have a car. I do not think runners today can live as we did. And the best thing about that whole time is the friends I made and am still making.
