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.

Kevin’s wife Jill made us a yummy home cooked breakfast in Seattle this morning, and she even brown bagged some sandwiches for our big day of flying. We were gonna put a picture of her here, but she has her eyes closed and would get mad at us. I guess we'll have to go back to Seattle to get another picture.

Kevin drove us to Silverdale, a small community west of Seattle to meet our flight. The airport was difficult to find, and for good reason, it’s in some guy’s back yard. But we managed, and met up with Trevor and Josh to prepare the plane. The four of us climbed aboard the Cessna 207 and took off for the seven-hour flight.

Trevor and Josh are starting a tour and charter business in Alaska called Arctic Aces. They are working on the web site now and we’ll make sure to link them when it's up and running. Until then, remember the name Arctic Aces.

We’ve had some pretty awesome rides on this trip, but today’s was miles above the others. Clear weather, low altitude, big mountains and good people made for an amazing time. The coastal mountains of British Columbia and the Alaskan panhandle rise straight out of the Pacific Ocean, towering above remote fjords and stretching inland over the horizon. The coastline is almost completely deserted, leaving the area absolutely pristine. We figured tourists pay hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for similar sight seeing trips. Not a bad score we got ourselves here.

After a quick stop to refuel we continued on to Alaska’s capital, Juneau. Trevor and Josh went off to work for the night on their new business while we scored a free room at the Bergmann Hotel.

Fiddy thinks it's fun to travel in Alaska during November without a jacket, so he was cold for the flight, and even colder in town. Good times. We were sent the song in this video but a young up-and-comer Bike. We think it's pretty good. If anybody else wants to rap about us...don't be shy.

But wait, there’s more to our situation. On Friday at 1:00 PM is our University graduation ceremony at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia. Now, we want to be there, the school wants us to be there, and our parents want us to be there.

Anyone got any ideas how can we get there?

Hi, We've been following your trip since the very first day but were beat to the punch before we could offer you a ride where we live. We live in the States, but I'm from BC and while you have fjords in Norway, they're called inlets in BC. Just so you get the local lingo, eh? But anyway, Scotty, aren't you Canadian? Just not from BC, obviously, and the English there is somewhat different than in, say, Sask where your brother lives now. We learned about you from his site. While it's past 10 your time, Anchorage is beautiful so I hope you made it there. Also, from there you can drive back to the States--hope you have all the right ID to cross the borders! btw, my blog is in limbo, so no point in going there as I deleted almost every post and don't know what I'm going to do with it yet. Time to go hear your anthem.

Bob and Doug are no doubt spinning in their graves and not just from all those stubbies either.
