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.

Boise, ID

The particular Peterbilt we are riding in is pretty much the Cadillac of semi trucks. It has two separate sleeping bunks, cushy suspension and seats that are fit for a King. Tonight we ride in style.

If you're going to be riding like a trucker, you need to eat like one too. So the three of us pulled off at the Truck Corral in Baker City, OR for some authentic cuisine. They specialize in Chicken Fried Steaks...the size of hubcaps.

After that onslaught we were on our way to state capitol number 32: Boise, ID. We were a little concerned about how exactly we would be getting our obligatory capitol- building photos while riding in a 18 wheeler on the interstate. Jack said he could make it happen. As long as you don't mind paying for four parking meters at once, apparently you can park a semi truck at the capitol building.

Onwards to Salt Lake City!

Those round fields shown in the post above are potatoes. Each round field has a water supply out to the middle, and a large boom rotates around the center to water it.

Just incase no one figured out what the round fields were on the map:
They are fields that have pivot systems on them. They're giant sprinklers that are stationary on one end & the other end slowly creeps around the field to water the crops....thus why the fields look circular from the top.

Yippybitz,
I don't think those are pivoting sprinkler fields - that's an ancient myth. They're actually the work of large Reese' Peanut Butter Cups. Honest.

Are you sure the circles are crop circles made by some life form other than human? Ha Ha

The crops are round and they are about the size of chicken fried steaks. Coincidence? I think not.
