I'm currently 2 weeks into a sobo and bunkered up in Flag as the snow is about to hit. I took the urban trail in, which I believe is about the same distance to taking it out to I40 and then hitching.
My question now is should I hitch out to the bypass and pick it up south from there? Is it an especially nice section? Otherwise, it seems simple to just pickup the urban trail south although this may cut out 10 miles or so.
