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.

Stuck in Branson

UPDATE: We made it out of Branson today, but now we're stuck just South of Branson over the Arkansas border at the junction of highway 65 and 14. If you wanna score us a ride, you know where to find us!

...here's what happened last night...

So we never got a ride out of Branson Friday night. We stood on the highway on-ramp for a few hours, but nobody wanted to stop.

That’s okay, just imagine how good the ride’s gonna be tomorrow. Also, it was about time we got ‘stuck’ somewhere, needed something to keep us on our toes.

Thanks to everyone who called us, emailed us and tried to set up rides. It’s pretty cool how people on the other side of the country will spend their Friday night trying to get two strangers a ride into Arkansas. Can’t thank you enough.

So if you’re in the Branson, Missouri area and looking to go for a drive give us a call 310.494.8058. Or actually you can just stop by and say hi, here’s where we’re staying:

Branson Hotel Royale
1000 W. Main
Branson, MO
Room 502

See ya out there...

You seem to have found the only hotel in Branson without a swimming pool. Oh well, location is everything as they say. Good luck tomorrow.

Nick left on his bike while we were talking. asuming a non-stop ride, you can expect him around 11am on Sunday morning. Of course, with any luck you'll be in Ohio by then.

When I heard you were stranded in Branson last night I tried to get you a ride, but didn't have any luck. Hope you guys are able to get something going this morning. I live in Texas and we watched you on the GPS pass about an hour from where I live on your way to OKC from Austin.

Are those white suits helping or hindering your mission?

Maybe the white suits aren't doing the trick for the Ozark folk.

I think they'll be a big hit in New Mexico though.

It may be the suits, looks like you just got out of prison, or perhaps just escaped from the state hospital.

I hope you get a ride
but people don't usually pick up hitchers,
even well dressed ones like you!

You guys should go to Reno sometime. I hear that it's like Branson for rich people.

Just thumb North from Carson City with your Branson sign...

50 States in 50 days, sorry dude, not going to happen. You haven't even been to the states where it takes a full day just to get through it. Good luck...
