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.

Bismarck, North Dakota

Housekeeping got turned away a couple times this morning as we caught up on some sleep. When we were caught up it was time to meet Judy and head south.

Judy is a mother of three and grandmother of four. Her son Chris follows our progress, when he saw we made it to Minot he called his mom from Fargo and asked her to give us a ride. It worked with her schedule and we were set. One of her granddaughters was going to come, but it didn’t work out. She even had the day off school for hunting season. You see hunting season opens at noon on Friday in North Dakota, so the kids in Minot get the day off school.

Neither of us had tried Walleye before, lucky for us we were in Walleye country. In fact, only a few miles from Minot rests the world’s biggest Walleye in Garrison, ND. We went there, admired its grandeur and beauty, then got some photos. Then we went to get some lunch just down the steet. To make a potentially good story into a lame story, we didn’t order Walleye. We ordered burgers. Lucky for us Judy invited us back to Minot for a big Walleye cookout in the summer.

Judy continued to drive us towards Bismarck. We talked about she's planning to start a wedding planning business with one of her friends in Minot. So if you’re getting married anytime soon around Minot, look her up.

We arrived at the capitol building in the mid-afternoon, had a look around and got some photos before parting ways.

After saying bye to Judy we needed to find a way south to Pierre.
