Veteran hitchhiker Morgan 'Sal'man Strub read Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road while trekking from San Francisco to Portland when he was 19 years old. He identified so much with Kerouac's alter-ego in the book, Sal Paradise, that he adopted 'Sal' as a nickname and founded a hitchhiking website, www.digihitch.com.
