'JetHiking Gypsy' Traveling All 50 States By Plane



Bookmark and Share

 A 29-year-old woman is hitch-hiking all 50 states - by airplane.
    
Amber Nolan is a self-described "JetHiking Gypsy" who bagged states 40 and 41 this week with stops in Fargo, N.D., and Sioux Falls.
    
A travel writer by trade, she started the quest in July 2012 in her home state of New York.
    
Nolan gave up her apartment, sold her car, put her belongings in storage and reduced her main gear to the basics: a tent, sleeping bag and backpack.
    
Now she's traveling the U.S. by thumbing rides on corporate jets, with private pilots, crop-dusters and even in home-built planes.
    
Nolan's blogging her adventures and plans to write a book when she's done.
    
She's on Facebook and Twitter as "JetHiking Gypsy" and her website is JetHiking.com.
