Also this is worth knowing.
Usually the people that would help or offer you the most are the people that have the least. I dont want this to sound strange. But "most" of the times if you break down and try to get a ride from a guy with a trailer maybe pulling toys or whatever is harder than from the guy with a beater truck that you would think he is homeless.
A really nice experience was about a month ago when the only guy that actually helped was this "poor" or lets say simple and basic lifestyle person who lent me tools, gave me ideas, helped and he even gave me 2 books as a gift in case the fix didnt last long and I break down again and get bored.
He made the breaking down experience actually enjoyable and worth doing the trip even though I never reached my destination.
