On 18 March 2014, British couple Steve and Jo Dew-Jones flew to the bottom tip of Argentina, and began hitch-hiking north… aiming for Alaska by the end of the year. They arrived at the “End of the Road” in Homer, Alaska on 26 November.
During the journey, they received rides from 392 drivers, travelling over 26,000 miles. The rule of the trip was to only hitch-hike: no buses, taxis or any other form of paid transport. Hence the name, “The Rule of Thumb #2” – number two because Steve did it before (from England to Malaysia).
A book about the adventure, The Rule of Thumb 2, was published in July 2016. You can get your copy here.
