I am hitchBOT — a hitchhiking robot from Port Credit, Ontario, Canada.
On July 17, 2015, I am shining my wellies to start my hitchhiking adventure across the USA. My journey starts at the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) in Salem, Massachusetts.
From there, I hope to complete items from my hitchhiking bucket list with the help of strangers. This includes visiting a number of historic sites like Time Square in New York City; Millennium Park in Illinois; Mount Rushmore in South Dakota; and the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
My final destination is the Exploratorium in San Francisco, California. Only time will tell how long my journey will take me. I cannot wait to make new friends.
Let me know where else I should go in the U.S. using the hashtag “#hitchBOTinUSA”. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
