The Great Skate Boys on a mission from Seattle, WA to the Mexican border stopped in San Jose this past weekend. (Day 55-58) They continued on their journey after a few days rest, without any sort of transportation other than their feet and their boards being allowed. This news clip was put together by KVAL in Eugene, OR as the team cruised through Lorane back in Sept.

Broadview based its map on revenue information from a Hoover’s database of company profiles, and used the location of each company’s corporate headquarters to determine which businesses “belonged” to which states.
“We noticed that many states did not have companies included in the [Fortune 500] list, so we decided to perform our own research to find the largest company by revenue in each state based on the location of the corporate headquarters,” wrote Russ Fordyce, a managing director at Broadview, in a Tuesday blog post about the map.
Many of the results are pretty intuitive. There’s Walmart in Arkansas, General Motors in Michigan and Exxon Mobil in Texas. But in some states, especially the smaller ones, you’ll notice some surprising corporate heavyweights. Johnson & Johnson rules in New Jersey, while CVS is the big fish in Rhode Island’s little pond. Additionally, in the state of Washington, it turns out Costco trumps Microsoft.
