Lift-Luck on Southern Roads by Tickner Edwardes (1865 - 1944).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/lift-luck-on-southern-roads-by-tickner-edwardes/
Here for you is the tale of my latest solitary ramble. The journey covers, as you shall see, some two hundred odd miles, through five southern counties of England, and was conceived on an unusual plan. To keep clear of the main roads, and, with two exceptions, the great towns; seeking out the least frequented lanes and by-paths. I covered the whole two-hundred-mile stretch of the way, with camera and pack at surprisingly little expense, by means of lifts taken in any chance vehicle that might be faring in my direction.

My plan consisted in waiting by the roadside, or strolling gently onward until something on wheels, it mattered not what, overtook me. And thus by fits and starts - slow joltings in lumbering farm-waggons, steady crawls in brewers’ drays, quiet hours on the tail-boards of pantechnicons and a momentous evening in a missionary van - I found myself, after many days of travel, at my journey’s end in drowsy Arundel and a great and all but resistless longing to turn about there and then, and do the journey all over again.
(From: Lift-Luck on Southern Roads)

This book is considered to be one of the very first to document the concept of hitchhiking as a method of travelling to your destination by asking to ride in various stranger’s vehicles for different sections of your journey.

So then, why not join Mr Edwardes and me on this intriguing and fascinating trip as we go ‘off the beaten track’ and hitchhike our way through a magnificent part of Southern England at the turn of the last century? (Steve C)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thanks for PLing 0 - Section 1 now uploaded.

(PDF files reference: 027 ~ 047)

Well, the journey begins - although I fear that walking shoes may not be totally suitable for the final part of the chapter.

Still, after a couple of pints of the featured authentic West Country farm-made scrumpy, I have a feeling that you won't be too bothered about such things :)

Cheers
