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.

Before we tell you about Niki you should check out her web site for yourself. Just click here. She even wrote about hangin' out with us in Utah.

After meeting up at the capitol building Niki took us on a quick tour of Salt Lake City and to Café Rio before heading back up the same road we just came down.

Like Jack, Niki works full-time at a good job, and has a dream to be in the entertainment industry. The difference is, Niki is a rocket scientist. She works in the engineering department at a local NASA facility. We found it to be a pretty interesting contrast from riding with a trucker to a rocket scientist. But when we got talking to her, she was so down to earth, just like Jack. She wants to be an actress and work in the film industry, just like Jack. Pretty cool how two people from two very different lives both want the same thing.

Niki is chasing her dream of acting through doing local jobs and film shoots. She’s gonna be working with Allan Wills from www.areyoumywife.com in the coming few weeks too. Check out Allan and Niki’s web sits for details as they come. We had a good time chatting and seeing the sights of the Utah and Idaho countryside from her car, unfortunately the ride was a short one because Niki had a film shoot in the evening and had to get back to Salt Lake City. That’s okay it looks like we’ll see her again in Nevada in a couple weeks. Hope so anyways.

We said goodbye to Niki in Pocatello, Idaho and tried our luck at the highway on ramp.

After 20 minutes a Jeep pulled up to the adjacent intersection and we heard a voice yelling at us to get in. Without thinking we jumped in as the Jeep was already moving. Mike and Bronson saw us on the side of the on ramp earlier and decided to come get us.

They are two local high school grads going to see their friends at college in Bozeman, Montana. What a sweet score, that’s like 250 miles away. Plus Mike’s Jeep had a massive stereo and a DVD player. We cruised in style watching ski videos and movies through Yellowstone National Park into Montana and onto Bozeman.

At Montana State University we met up with their friends and stayed in John Michael’s room. Got the full first year dorm experience. Way too many people packed into a small room huddled around an Xbox and a smuggled stash of beer. The beds are modified using a few 2X4’s to create enough room for a futon and a make-shift kitchen including a mini-fridge, microwave and a toaster oven. I didn’t see it, but I’m sure a George Foreman grill was somewhere around.

After a late night, and a crowded sleep in a stuffy room we were back on the highway headed to Helena.
