In the summer of 1978, Griffin-Nolan and a friend took to the road, hitchhiking from New York to California, on to New Orleans and back home to New York. As 2018 approached, the itch to hitch returned-but most people seemed to believe that this was now impossible. Griffin-Nolan decided to find out why nobody hitchhiked anymore. With a backpack, a hashtag, and a sign, he stuck out his thumb near his house, and let luck, and the road, take him where it would. Nobody Hitchhikes Anymore is an "act of loving rebellion" (Sean Kirst, Buffalo News) and a travelogue about a changing society and the people who lifted him up.
