lol. Very imaginative. In my little book, "Dust Devil: Tales from the High Desert" (Bezos is embezzling my profits - it's okay. I really want the race close between him and Musk for the world's first trillionaire.), two of my characters are hitchhikers, One Stephanie picks up while driving in Nevada on Hwy 50 - the loneliest highway - Mesmerized by mirages, she just wants to stay awake. The man's hand-printed sign says, "Baker" - her destination is Nuevo Panadero, (New Baker), a utopia for uber wealthy, so, of course, she'll give him a ride. A harmless, small man. He doesn't speak, pulls out a legal pad and starts to write while she's driving. Her radio gets stuck in a loop, playing "Riders on the Storm". https://annjames-0427.medium.com/eight-year-old-ryan-mcgillicutty-presents-his-grandmothers-novel-at-open-mic-night-hours-past-his-70ffd13c56b7
