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.

Topeka, Kansas

Directions are easy in the plains. It's flat and all the towns in the plains are easily identified by a giant water tower with the name of the town on it. Somehow we still managed to get lost. However, we did find the giant TOPEKA water tower this afternoon.

We rolled up to the capitol building and made an executive decision:



We celebrated our new image with a little trip to Taco John's. I'm skeptical about the name "Taco John's", doesn't sound very Mexican. Maybe "Taco Juan's" would be better? I dunno, John doesn't really imply any Mexican or other south of the border images.

Taco John's

Apparently this cut-out cost $700, I doubt it, but the woman working behind the counter insisted it was. To bad, we wanted to write Kansas City on it and hit the side of the highway.

Watch out for the beef mixture that they use at Taco John's. It always makes me sick.

Have you ever heard of Carlos O'Kelly's Mexican Restaurants? Only thing I can think of is that Carlos' mom married an O'Kelly.

Later,
