For all those naysayers out there (wasn’t there a few?) who thought Scotty and Fiddy from Hitch50.com couldn’t make it to Hawaii, you’ve been proven wrong. They finally made it through their journey, hitchhiking 50 states in 50 days and have the gratuitious jump shots to prove it.
It’s a stunning turn of events that can only be described as a Hollywood-style ending.
We spent Monday around Los Angeles looking for different ways to get to Hawaii, but it was the guys from Fermata who came through and saved our dignity with only hours to spare.
They organized a big party at Carpe DM, a bar in Simi Valley, just north of Los Angeles for us and arranged a percentage of the proceeds to buy us tickets to Honolulu.
And just like that, the journey was over. Congrats to Scotty and Fiddy for proving something that seems outrageous, for no reason at all other than they can.
In case you missed it, a few weeks ago I interviewed their tech guy Heath Johns about Hitch50’s neat GPS cell phone mapper and travel related theories for the future.
