Yellow-blazing is hitch-hiking from one point on the trail to another point that is
further ahead, thereby skipping a section of trail without walking it. Road-walking
to skip some trail would be considered blue-blazing since the hiker is still using
his/her feet to get from one point of the trail to another. Flagging a car down with
your big toe does not count as 'using your feet' in the blue-blazing definition :-)
