comment How much time should I allow if hitchhiking from Southeast Michigan to Boston, MA?
@pnuts: Imprecise answers can also be right answers. I know I would've been able to answer within a range and with caveats if the OP had asked about somewhere in Asia or Eastern Europe. There's an equation with some knowable and some unknowable variables so the more knowable ones we can insert the more we can move away from "anywhere between instantaneous and forever" to an answer that will be useful to the OP even if we can't give him a value he can set on a stopwatch. We have a good few answers based on experience here.

comment Where to buy used or cheap monitor and keyboard in Jerusalem, Israel
@pnuts: Well that still looks more like a shopping question than a travel question. Recall that back when the site started I myself was admonished by the SE staff for a question asking about buying camping gear in the Balkans, which is unarguably travel related. Basically the kinds of shopping that travel guides cover is on topic here such as buying travel necessities and tourist/souvenir shopping. For instance we already have a small number of questions asking for the Akihabara equivalent in certain cities so we know that's on-topic here.

Kenny, other factors for such a question are your age, how much hitchhiking experience you have and how it usually goes, what's the closest you have experience to the area in the question. For instance if you can't make it in a single day can you crash somewhere near the road? I have a few years experience hitchhiking around the world, but not in the US.

@pnuts: Well there is no set amount of time any hitchhiking trip will take since it depends on luck and other unquantifiable factors. The only kind of answers that are any good are descriptions by others who have hitched the same area.

Stack Exchange has a policy against shopping questions. But, since shopping is a travel topic we do allow typical travel-related shopping questions. I recommend rephrasing as "does Jerusalem have a used electronics market or area."

@gayot: this should be an answer. Ironically, the answer below should've been a comment.
