If you thought Dean Karnazes running 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 states was crazy, these guys have lost it on a totally different level. Their names are Scotty & Fiddy and they’re the guys behind Hitch50. Their goal is to hitchhike to 50 state capitals in 50 days or less.
They started off on the road at Times Square this morning on their way to Albany. You can follow their progress on the website and they’re offering an incentive for people to pick them up: one of their lucky drivers wil be chosen to be flown out to their 50th state capital to party with them. Which begs the question: How are they driving to Honolulu anyway? I asked them, and I’ll have the answer for you shortly.
