You’re bound to meet a few interesting people when you take a year-long hitchhiking trip across the country.

Artist, traveler and self-proclaimed ‘lover of people’ Benjamin Jenks met exactly 930 when he and his raised thumb journeyed 5,000 miles from Los Angeles to Maine. Artist that he is, Ben put together a time-lapse video of his trip complete with photos of all 930 people he met along the way.
