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.

Victoria, BC to Olympia, WA

The grad ceremony was good. Well actually it was long and wet. But it was defiantly worth the trip to Victoria to see everyone and participate in the ceremony. Highlights included seeing the funny costumes people wear for these ceremonies, Scotty’s diploma having a typo in his name, but most of all, making our moms proud.

We met up with all our grad class and painted the town red, without the GPS. Our resident tech guy Heath even got in on some late night jump shots. Then Rez showed off his best ShakyFace while Teegan got her frown on with Scotty.

Steve McKay, who is still looking for a job, gave us a place to stay in Victoria. He even made us breakfast. What a nice guy, if I was an employer I would definitely give him a job.

This afternoon Steve took us down to the legislature building in Victoria. Not capitol building, it’s a legislature building in Canada. Here it donned on us that we had no business being in Canada, and needed to get back to the roads of America. After wasting precious time in Victoria Steve drove us up the road to the ferry terminal and donated two tickets to Vancouver, British Columbia.

Waiting to pick us on the mainland was Gordon. Gordon is a young guy from Abbotsford, British Columbia. He recently graduated university, got married, earned a full time job and bought a house. Talk about growing up in a hurry. Just throw some kids and a dog in there and away goes your free time. Maybe that’s why he jumped on the idea of spending his Saturday night driving us down to Olympia, WA. Gordon works as a GIS map tech for a local municipality. Like many map enthusiasts out there he was intrigued by the GPS mapping on our site.

Battling the monsoon-like rains, we passed through the border, beyond Seattle and into Olympia, WA. Capital number 30. Got some photos with Gordon, said goodbye and checked into a hotel.
