I've been planning this for a while. I need to be in the rockies around first week of Feb, and have been thinking it would be fun (and challenging!) to go by road in the cold. If anyone wants to join along for some winter hitchhiking, let me know :) Or if you've done the cross-country journey before and have any tips, I'm all ears.

I've done it............ in the summer. Not sure how familiar you are with Canadian Prairie winters but the blowing snow, and the frequent trips to -30 and -40 are enough to make living here barely possible, let alone hitchhike. I wouldn't adivse hitchhiking this time of year unless you are well geared and comfortable with the cold. As Busman said, a bus ticket would be your best bet.
