There is an old joke; "How did Wawa get it's name? Because of all of the hitchhikers crying in the forest."
Wawa is the black hole of hitchhikers.
Wawa is on the north shore of Lake Superior. Wawa has an airport, downtown center and all of the modern conveniences. However, Wawa is relatively remote from other communities and a little ways off of the highway too.
Wawa is about half way between Thunder Bay and Sault Ste Marie. And Wawa is on a very lonely stretch of the Trans-Canada highway. For a driver or a hitchhiker driving across Canada Wawa is a place to get out of quick.
Most hitchhikers have some sort of Wawa horror story; being stuck for hours, days, even longer - in the elements- waiting for a lift out of Northern Ontario.
There is a tale of a hitchhiker; he could not hitch out of Wawa so he went to the local bar. The histchiker spent all of his money before he could not get a lift out. So he started a tab at the bar. But he still got no lift.
In desperation, he got a job at that bar to pay off his tab. He started dating the bar owners daughter. He married her. His father in law died. Now he inherited the bar anbd half thye town; He is the hitchhiker who never did escape.
When passing through the forests and bush of Northern Ontario, please thing twice whenb you see a poor hitchhiker at the side of the road; Help him out of Wawa.
