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.

While we were in Phoenix for Thanksgiving Jody was working hard to find us a way to Hawaii. She used to be a reservations agent for America West, so she was workin’ the phones trying to get us some flights to Hawaii or California. She couldn’t line up Hawaii, but her friend Chris did one better with RENO!

That’s right we got a flight from Vegas to the Poor Man’s Vegas. We finalized the details at about 6:30 AM on the phone with Jody for an 8:20 AM flight. We were set, a flight to Reno. So we fell asleep for a couple hours…

Falling asleep resulted in the classic Las Vegas miss your flight trick. Looking back, it had to be done to get the full Las Vegas experience. We rushed off to the airport in the morning and managed to transfer our tickets to the last two standby seats on a later flight. So, in the end we got to Reno a few hours later, but got a good story out of the deal.

Sean and Aaron drove into Reno from Sacramento to meet us. As we walked out of the terminal they were just pulling up. We got in and started the short drive to Nevada’s capital, Carson City.

Sean Perkey is easily one of the most interesting people of the trip and is working on a great web project. Sean weights 519 pounds and is working on losing 250 pounds. Check out his blog here: Watchmyloss.com and see how he’s doing or offer him some support, cause it’s one of the more awesome projects ever.

We cruised into the Carson City, got some photos, realized not too much was going on in town and headed back towards Reno.
