If I could put anything on my bucket list, it would be to travel across the USA and visit as many states as I could. Of course, I wouldn't hitchhike as artist, traveler Benjamin Jenks recently did.Benjamin Jenks journey took a year-long as he thumbed his way 5,000 miles from Los Angeles to Maine. Jenks got to see lots of scenery along the way but he also met some very interesting characters on his cross country trek.

Benjamin met approximately 930 people and has put together a time-lapse video of his adventures and photos of the people he met.
