Selam! : )

Few questions at which would be useful to have an answer concerning Iran for whose travel style is mostly hitchhiking and freecamping.

1) Currently, is it generally safe to hitchhike around Iran? If You think it applies, please provide separate answers divided by category: solo males, solo females, group of females.
2) Currently, are there any parts of the country where is better not to hitchhike independently of ones gender because of risk of kidnapping by terrorists or of getting accidentally shot?
3) Currently, are there any parts of the country where is better to avoid wildcamping independently of ones gender because of risk of terrorist threats while sleeping in own tent?

An answer provided by who is Iranian by roots, or by who currently lives in Iran and hitchhikes around the country, is more appreciated. Thank You for your kind attention and time.

A major consideration is your passport and whether or not you can be vicariously linked to the United States. Some Australians have had issues in the past two years, perhaps, most probably, as a result of the US and Iran political issues.
