Ruthie On The Road, Update

The next morning, I hitchhiked from Du Bois to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. I reached that city as the sun was about to set.

Because I didn't choose to establish residency in Wilkes-Barre, I was only allowed to stay at the local women's shelter for three days.

But what a great three days it was!

The staff at that shelter couldn't have been nicer.

I ate, slept, did my laundry, restocked necessary supplies and left on a bus.

I was STRONGLY ADVISED NOT to hitchhike out of Wilkes-Barre. They apparently really frown on highway solicitation in that city.

The bus took me up to Springfield, Massachusetts...and an angel.
