John Waters has completed his hitchhiking trip across the United States - and the Utah leg may have been one of the smoothest, quickest parts of the trip.
In an interview with The New York Times, Waters talked about the trip - which took him from coast to coast, and gave him material for an upcoming book.
"Pot smokers, cops, I got everybody," Waters said of the people who gave him rides. "And everybody was lovely."
Waters made it through Utah in one stretch, riding in a Corvette from Denver to Reno (presumably taking I-70 through Utah, turning right at I-15 around Cove Fort, and hanging a left at I-80 in Salt Lake City). The Corvette's driver was Brett Bidle, a 20-year-old town councilman from Myersville, Md. - who, as it turned out, also gave Waters a lift from Maryland to Ohio.
Waters called Bidle "the first Republican I'd ever vote for."
