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.

Don't mess with Texas

Russell decided to blow off work and drive us into Texas. Russell thought he could be sneaky and pull the wool over his boss’ eyes; but we forgot his boss was able to track us through the GPS on the web site. Oops, didn’t mean to get you in any trouble Russ. Also, thanks for the Sony VAIO, really appreciate it. Let us know if you can find the power supply though.

We still can’t believe how well rides are working out. We’ll get dropped off in a town and need another ride. Often thinking we’re gonna be stuck and nothing is looking good. Then the phone rings and the person on the other end of the line offers to take us on to the next city.

This happened with our next ride, Heather. Russell could take us to Beaumont, about 75 miles from Houston, but we had no idea how to get into Houston. As we were literally walking out the door we received an email from Heather saying “Well, hell ya, I can pick ya’ll up in Beaumont”. Perfect, a ride, and she sounds like a true Texan.

We we’re rollin’ deep in Heather’s SUV all the way into Houston where we met up with Chris. The day before Chris called and said bluntly “Hey, I took the week off. I’ll get you guys in Houston, stay at my buddy’s place in Austin, party on 6th street and we’ll go up to Oklahoma City the next day. When can you be here?” Now, we had several offers from Houston to Austin, but Chris wasn’t about to accept a no, or even a maybe. Chris lives in Houston and runs a poker web site. Check it out here.

After checking out the beautiful scenery of Pasadena’s refineries we were off to Austin, or 20th capital. We got some timely assistance from our fans for directions. On the way to Austin Chris took a wrong turn, within one minute we had two phone calls telling us we took the wrong highway and we’re headed away from Austin.

Thanks for the help ya’ll.
