SET FORTH: Thumbing with the Founder of the Great Hitchhiking Race

The summer issue of the Oxford American includes my profile of Aaron Bell, as I trailed him during last summer's race from Texas to North Carolina. If you ever wanted to learn how to hitchhike (or may already be a seasoned pro and just want an excuse to get back out there) and are comfortable with camping for a few nights near some beautiful waterfalls at the finish line, snag a copy to find out more. You'll be glad you did. The issue is full of stories about journeys paired with evocative art. Take it on the road with you. This year's race, the 12th annual, begins July 8.
