Our names are Scotty and Fiddy and we hitchhiked to all 50 state capitols in 50 consecutive days. We started in Times Square on October 10th 2006 and ended in Honolulu on November 28th 2006. It was awesome. Email us: hitch50@gmail.com. Thanks to everyone who made it possible, it was fun! Read about our trip here.

The City of Brotherly Love

We made it to Philadelphia! Today was a good one...really good. Pretty much drinking a Slurpee with licorice for a straw good. Here's a run down of how it happened. Just for fun let's do it in reverse order.

Right now we're staying in an apartment right off South St. in Philadelphia. It's a pretty sweet location with a lot happening right outside the door.



The reason we are staying at such a great place is because we managed to get a ride with Robyn and Andy. See the previous post to see what they bailed us out from. The reason we were in the spot that Robyn and Andy picked us up was because Lisa and Jeremy and Lily showed up at the Harrisburg capitol building with homemade "Scotty" and "Fiddy" signs and offered to give us a ride half way to Philadelphia.

We got to Harrisburg with John and Rich. John goes by the name "Spiderman" because he was a state champion 2nd baseman. Apparently he seemed like he had webbed hands because of how well he could snag line drives. Rich was really into Volkswagens...but today they rolled in a Buick. John and Rich picked us up from a strip mall near Hazleton, PA. We were spending some quality time there with Jessica and Ray flying kites.

They picked us up at the PA/NY state line. We were just hanging out there for a litle while. Which was cool because it just so happens that the rest stop at the state line is the international "Chip the Bucket" headquarters. We had a quick tournament on the grass.

Which attracted the attention of Abe, who claimed to own a collection of over 300 golf balls....but doesn't golf. That's a good way to be Abe. Why take the cow for a walk when you could sit at home on a Saturday night enjoying a nice warm glass of milk? That's what we always say at least.

Hey guys...you better get the lead out. Making it through 8 states in 6 days is nice for the East Coast...but check out a USA map and you'll see there are a couple of REALLY BIG (and boring) states you need to get through. Sleeping, eating and hanging out is for wimps! You have a long way to go to get to the Northwest.
