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.

Columbia, SC

Ken continued the trend of southern hospitlity. Ken, Jill and Sadie welcomed us into their South Carolina home. A really nice family, Jill's sister, who missed our visit even told us to come back and stay at her place next time.

After spending the night and a lazy morning at their house we checked out the Columbia state house. The confederate flag still flies here; it's recently been moved from the roof to a smaller pole on the lawn, as a comprimise. Jill and George met us there too. George was so excited to meet us, he got caught speeding towards the capitol building. Hope it was worth $75 to meet us George. Sorry about making you rush. After a stroll around the state house grounds, we jumped in Ken's SUV and made a break for the Georgia state line.

Learned some interesting things about South Carolina. Like residents' obsession with the Gamecocks. For anyone who doesn't know the Gamecocks are the University of South Carolina's football team. Almost every car has a "Go Cocks" bumper sticker, and I guarantee every Columbia citizen has at least one garment with the Gamecocks logo on it. They even play their 'fight song' from the capitol building everyday at noon. This is definately college football territory.
