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.

Stars fell on Alabama

Teo and his mother Eloina picked us up outside the CNN building after our interview this afternoon. We jumped in and headed to Alabama.

The mother and son team are originally from Venezuela, and have been living in Atlanta for several years. Teo was actually the first person to call our phone and offer us a ride, over two weeks ago. Teo's eagerness to participate even involved packing food, drinks and comedy CDs for the drive to Montgomery.

During the whole ride with Teo and Eloina we were using Teo's video camera to document the ride and our memories together. Teo, who works for LAPTV.com , a film production studio with tones of great ideas, is gonna make us short clip for us about our time together. Stay tuned for the video.

We arrived in Alabama's capital, Montgomery in the late afternoon. Our 16th capital in 11 days. We didn't have any rides set up, and the prospects of making it to Tallahassee this evening were looking bleak. One timely phone call fixed all our problems. Steve, from Live 102, a local radio station called to do an interview. Scotty went on the air and talked with Steve about our project for about five minutes. At the end of the interview the phone began ringing immediately.

Two southern belles, Kaki and Lauren, were the first to call and offered to take us where we needed to go. After meeting up with them we decided to stay in Alabama for the night, then head for Florida in the morning.

So now we're in the back seat of a of Kaki's car listening to "Sweet home Alabama" on the way to their house in Auburn, Alabama.

War Eagle.

It just occured to me, you're hitting the "hotter" states first. By the time your 50 states are up, you'll be hitching through some of the coldest states in the US, in NOVEMBER. (Y'all got some balls, I tell ya)
Crazy Boys! LOL. Keep it going, you're doin great!
