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.

Montpelier, VT

Vermont is amazing. It's sunny here and the fall foliage is spectacular. We came up to the capitol, Montpelier this morning with Scott King who is in the US Air Force. He was a really cool guy and told us some pretty intense stories from Iraq. The phrase that really stuck was when he said "At first you hear shells flying at you and you hit the ground....after a while you get used to it and don't bother 'cause you don't want to get your uniform muddy." It was pretty hardcore. But he drove fast so that was cool.

We got to the capitol building in the early afternoon.

We did the usual photo session and then headed over to the Montpelier capitol building cannon to attempt the infamous cannon flip.




I think it's safe to say that Fiddy's attempt may be the worst attempt at anything ever recorded on film.

Then we met up with Mark. Mark tried to get one of his pilot friends to fly us down through a few states in his plane. It didn't work out because his friend had to perform at his night job as a magician tonight. It would have been awesome, but oh well. So we went for a few beers with Mark and went back to his house. Again, we had a little photo shoot and then headed south into New York State. Right now we're meeting up with Rick who will take us through upstate NY.

good luck in upstate new york (again). you two better start making tracks, because big and spooky states lie ahead of you (e.g. the dakotas).
