From the Bay to LA

Our bay area host, Ty just moved to Cupertino a few months ago, and is lovin’ it. He’s started his own PR company in the south bay area and is working hard to make it happen. Check out his site here and give him a call.

Sunday morning we went out for breakfast in Cupertino with Ty and waited for our next ride, Bliss.

Bliss may just be the most eccentric person we’ve met. We realized when she showed up wearing blue coveralls with a dashboard covered in rubber reptiles while blasting trashy techno. Her personality came through right away and we knew it would be a fun afternoon. The fun afternoon started right away with the idea of “The Broom Game”. The broom game involves holding a broom above your head, spinning around 30 times, putting the broom down and jumping over it.

After The Broom Game we sat down for a bit, said bye to Ty and headed south to Santa Barbara. Bliss is another fan from day one, and holds the record for most emails sent to us. I'm gonna guess about 120. She's also a grad student in Santa Barbara, on her way back south after Thanksgiving. She's a proud Vermont girl caught out in California, counting the days until she can get back east.

Bliss entertained us by missing exits, screaming randomly at cars, eating food which gives her stomach aches, complaining about traffic while in traffic, asking real random questions, texting us from 20 feet away and taking us to the outlet shops.

Here she is caught in her car door.

We stopped in Santa Barbara to see some of Bliss' friends before continuing south to the Los Angeles area.



We're currently in Simi Valley staying with Roy and Chris, getting ready for a big finish to Hitch50. We'll be around the LA area on Monday, looking for different ways to get us to Hawaii for Tuesday. Midnight Tuesday local Hawaii time is the deadline to be in Honolulu, so the clock is quickly ticking away. If you have ANY offers or leads for Hawaii please give us a call at 310.494.8058 or send us an email hitch50@gmail.com

Regardless of what happens Monday during the day, Monday night is the Hitch50, Day 49 party here in Simi Valley. We're having a big event put on by the band Fermata to try and find us a way to Hawaii, so come on out, hang out and have some fun.

Trust a Canadian to know how to handle his broom.

Good luck on the final leg.

HI, GUYS,
I KEEP SAYING JUST ONE MORE NOTE BUT CAN'T LET THIS EVENING GO BY WITHOUT ANOTHER "GOOD WISHES" FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
IT IS NOW 9:30 P.M. HERE IN ILLINOIS AND I AM THINKING ABOUT THE PARTY THAT YOU SAID WOULD START 30 MINUTES FROM NOW.
HOPE THE BUCKS ROLL IN FOR YOU AND YOU ARE ON THE PLANE AGAIN.
ALOHA.
