Jonathan Thompson and Mark Chilvers have already gone vertical via a jet pack, spent time with the Amish, visited Gordon Ramsay's strange Vegas pub and have been taught surfing by the Hawaii Fire Department. If you haven't been following the blog, you can do so here, but here's a quick snapshot of their first 10 days attempting to cover 50 American states in 30 days.

Hi Mike - New England is not a state, it's a collection of states on the East Coast. And we're going there on Thursday so stay tuned! Cheers, Jonathan

Amish ride bikes?  They're scooters - a bike has a seat and pedals!

What's up fellas!

Mark, you left your sweet gloves and hat in the rental here in Juneau.  I hope you guys are still having fun and let me know if there's anything I can do from here to help! Remember, no AC Slatering, keep it clean.
