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.

Ya'll remember Kim and Mary-Rachel from Raleigh, North Carolina?

If not, here they are after taking us to South of the border in Dillon, South Carolina.



But more importantly, here they are today:



Assuming we get a ride in the next 12 hours or so, we'll see you in Hawaii tomorrow.

I can't believe I didn't win! Oh, the humanity! Oh, the pain! Oh, the miles on my ride!

We'll always have Ciudad Juarez. And Ascencion. And Agua Prieta. And that strange pull-out between Chihuahua and Sonora for truckers who lose control of their rigs going uphill.

Good job, guys. It was a blast.

Don't forget about all of us back here on the mainland (especially in the freezing Dakotas)!

@Jim Hill:

Maybe it's there for the downhill out-of-control truckers and they're meant to back into it...

Looks like you're at an airport in LA. Hopefully you're haggling your way onto a plane to Hawaii.

Awesome job fellas!

Scotty, it was a pleasure carting you "aboot" Hotlanta.

Fiddy, the Russians beat our tennis team so we did not make the finals, but we live to play another day!

Proud to be,

Late logging in today, but have been with you since Day 1. Here's hoping you're already in the air but the tracker's not working! Of course, if you're going by Hawaii time you still have almost 10 hours by my reckoning. But if you're going by NY time because you started late, you'd better already be in the air!

Amazing coincidence today. We've been following Scotty and Fiddy since day 4. We really wanted to give them a ride in our RV in the western states, but they got here just as we were flying east for thanksgiving. I noticed about 5 days ago that the trip to Hawaii that we had booked over a month ago landed exactly on S & F's day 50. Weird, right?

Even weirder, we're sitting on the plane at the gate this morning when Cindy elbows me saying "Oh my God, look!" So I look up to a familiar face and t-shirt. Scotty and Fiddy are on my plane!

So rest assured everyone, unless they somehow deplaned mid-flight, they made it! Congrats, guys. We look forward to seeing you on the Big Island. Since we utterly let you down for rides and airline tickets we at least owe you beers or something!

Yeah, I wondered if it would be uncool to post before their announcement, but since comments were moderated, I figured they would just hold off on our comment if they cared.

But more beers is fine if we blew it.

Teresa's mom says, "I'm impressed, such a wild a crazy thing to do and I'm so glad that you are safe and in Hawaii. " "Love the pictures and the journey."
