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.

Memphis

Arriving in Memphis we met up with Steve and his group of friends. They were having a Halloween party and invited us to join in on the fun. We didn’t have any costumes, but the white suits did the trick for the night. Steve and all his friends are such awesome people; they welcomed us into their homes, took care of us and showed us a good time.

Fiddy, Scotty, Steve

White out

After hanging out with everyone at the party, and having a look around downtown Steve put us up for the night at his downtown apartment. We even got breakfast out of the deal too from his roommate Todd.

It’s obvious when you stumble upon something good, like this group of people in Memphis. They are all positive, fun, friendly folk who are all about helping each other, and anyone else out.

Everywhere we travel around America there is so many people like these guys in Memphis. Normal, fun, down-to-earth people who welcome two strangers into their homes. In contrast there are so many people who are afraid of helping out strangers, welcoming people into their homes or even meeting new people. It’s hard to imagine how hard this project would be without all the good people like Steve and everyone in Memphis.

Steve works as an architect in Memphis, loves traveling and found our site while finding un-work related items to look at, while at work. He recently took a quick tour through the states going to 14 of the western states in 9 days, and also went to Europe. He is always keen to go anywhere, just needs an excuse to go.

We hung around his place in Memphis for the morning before moving on.



After a bit of R&R on the roof it was time for the drive to Nashville. We met up with Steve’s buddy Yates, jumped in his Durango and headed for the highway.

Fiddy- I am so happy that you finally found a pool to swim in...even if it is only a hot tub! Love it! See you in West Virginia....you know "Mountaineers are always free" or it could just be that West Virginia is the poor man's Virginia.
Much love!!!
