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.

Little Rock, Arkansas

Bobby and Deepak drove up from Little Rock, picked us up and took us the final 30 miles from Conway into Little Rock. After dropping off Deepak and picking up Cody we went to the capitol building. Number 24.

Convicts dressed in all white often work around the capitol building grounds, so we were getting some cautious looks from people in the area. They realized we weren’t a threat after seeing our awesome jump shots.

We didn’t stay long in Little Rock, just enough to see the crowds from the Razorback game and the downtown area. We also learned it’s illegal to mispronounce Arkansas. So there may have been some pronunciation of “Are-Kansas” or “Are-cans-ass” going on. We’ve had some close calls with breaking the law lately, so I’ll leave it at that.

After the quick tour of Little Rock Bobby and Cody took us two hours into Tennessee. Bobby has a great story of why he’s from Arkansas. His parents fled the turmoil of the Middle East in the late 70’s to return home to California. Upon returning they decided to drive a VW van east to Florida and start a new life. Along the way their van broke down in Arkansas and they’ve been here ever since.

Like many of the other citues, we we're about to be lost in Memphis. But Cody saved the day when he fired up Delorme Street Atlas on his computer and guided us to safety…
