I hitched a few times to and from beach on our day off. Found out that locals were wary of hippies who were causing some trouble.  So we were advised to carry a sign that said "Peace Corps".  The ones who picked us up always seemed to have guessed that, anyway.  However, it always seemed that hippies were the main topic of conversation.
But the main thing I learned was that in Hawaii you don't "thumb" a ride; you made an arm gesture down to the side of the road. Cross-culture in action.
