    I used to hitchhike as a teenager.   I've traveled many places by myself.  I drove from Monterey, California to Fairbanks, Alaska alone.  I remember not seeing another living soul for hours on the ALCAN Highway up through the Yukon.   I've hiked and run solo up in the mountains quite a few times.  I went on a trip to Moscow for a few days solo (after a guided tour to Lithuania).  

    You just have to be wary of your surroundings and particularly of strange people.  You meet a lot of interesting people.  Of course cellphones and GPS today make it a bit easier than previous times.
