Benjamin Jenks didn't know what to expect when he decided to live his dream of hitchhiking more than 5,000 miles across the United States.

Would he be safe?  Would people actually pick him up?  Is there any chance he could make it from California to Maine?

Benjamin got answers to all of those questions, and found out so much more.  See what he saw below.

In 5,000 miles, 3,000 pictures and 930 people Benjamin Jenks showed us that people are actually nice.

So yes, Ben did make it, and he has one of the coolest videos ever to prove it.
