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.

CNN

Last night Nathan called at about 11:00. He said he worked in the satellite department at in Atlanta. Apparently he and his co-workers have been monitoring our progress since day one. Nathan was excited to see we were in Atlanta and offered to show us around the CNN studio. We agreed without hesitation.

He picked us up outside Bob’s early this morning and took us down to the CNN world headquarters. After getting security clearance he took us to the floor where much of the world gets its news.

It was funny walking around wearing our Scotty and Fiddy shirts. They have www.hitch50.com on the back and many workers took notice. After several minutes of walking around the news floor we noticed many of the employee’s computer screens had our web site loaded on them. We were even asked to pose for pictures by several of the workers. That’s what I call direct advertising.

We tried for a couple hours to show our faces around the studio and get ourselves on TV. Scotty even tried going straight to the source. Nathan introduced us to several producers and others who are in the business of writing history. They listened as we pitched our story to many of them and walked them through our web site. Our persistence landed us a six and a half minute spot on CNN.




Nathan, thank you. Thank you very much.
