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.

Nashville, Tennessee

Along the drive to Nashville Andrea called us up and offered a place to stay in Nashville. Perfect, it was looking like we would be hotel'n it tonight. So we met up with her and went out for dinner with Yates and Steve.

After dinner we headed for the capitol building. Here we realized we left our video camera in Memphis. Ouch. But don’t worry we still got some good jump shots. Gotta get that camera though. I hear a company called FedEx is located somewhere around Memphis, maybe they can help.

So there it is, half way done on day 20. We know we still have a long ways to go; the western states are a lot bigger, and we still have no idea how we’re getting to Alaska and Hawaii, but this is still a milestone. The first 25 states have been amazing. When we started from New York City almost three weeks ago we had no idea how this would pan out. There was a moment standing there in Times Square where I was thinking, oh man what have we gotten ourselves into. But, those thoughts were quickly washed away by all the support, generosity and hospitality we’ve received, right from the beginning. All the memories, experiences and friends from the first 25 states is only getting us excited for the next 25 and all the opportunities awaiting us and the people we meet.

After hanging out at our half way point we said bye to Steve and Yates and headed to Andrea’s place. She heard about us through her boyfriend Dan, and wanted to be part of the journey. Andrea is in her final semester her at Vanderbilt University and is planning on moving to Canada in December, long way from home for a D.C. girl.

We arrived at Andrea’s place and realized it is small, really small. It turns out she lives in the dorms at Vanderbilt University, in a single room. So space is limited. That’s okay, we managed to make everything fit in and had a good time hanging around the building with her and the other students.

Oh ya, we're looking for a ride out of Nashville on Monday. Can you help? I hear they have some good chicken in Kentucky...

Glad to see you made it out of Branson, many never do, Andy Williams comes to mind.

In that they must have cars in the capitol of Alaska you must find out how they get them there and then follow that route, same goes for Hawaii.

Anyone who can make it through SC can make it anywhere.

Stay safe.
