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.

Tuesday, October 10th. 10:00 AM

It's official. Hitch 50 begins Tuesday, October 10th at 10:00 AM Eastern time. We will be in Times Square hitchin' to New York's capital: Albany. This gives us until Wednesday, November 29th to reach the 50th state capital.

I doubt many people hitchhike from Times Square, should be pretty fun. If you're in the area come see us, get a photo with us, hang out, attract attention or offer us a ride.

Just look for two guys wearing green and blue shirts holding a sign that says: "ALBANY"

See you then,

Scotty and Fiddy

It sounds like you are in for a great time! I'm sure you won't have many problems getting through my state of Montana. We're generally nice to hitchhikers =) (at least on the western half of the state)

I'm most likly going to be in class when you come through, but if it's a weekend, I'd love to give you guys a ride.

Do you guys have any rough outline of what order in which you are going to visit the state capitals?

Also, be on the lookout for the lack of McDonalds in Montpelier; we are the only state that doesn't have one in it's capital :p

Reminds me of the song

The chorus is I've got fifty dollars says you'll never make it to Albany

Have you got a ride out of Manhattan yet? I live in Jersey City and work right near Penn Station. I can't afford the three hour drive to Albany, but if you haven't got a better offer I can probably drive you part of the way.

If your journey takes you through downtown Kansas City, MO, I can get you to Topeka if I'm free that day. My car is crappy but it works.
