I like hitiching too and have had similar experiences.  Of course, it's 
nothing new, the summer out of high school, I hitch from Vermont, across Canada to 
Banff, down to Glacier and back to Massachusetts.  My worst time was 
thumbing/waiting 24 hours in Brandon, Ontario, but withing 10 minutes of asking, I had 
a ride.  Hopped a train while I was in Canada too, that was fun!

Another alternative to getting back to the trail from town, attractive with a 
couple others, is to take a taxi.
