NEW YORK (AP) — Two friends who hired a New York City cab driver to drive them across the United States for $5,000 have arrived in Los Angeles.

John Belitsky of Leonia, N.J, and Dan Wuebben of Queens reached California on Friday after a six-day trip.

The cab made a pit stop in Las Vegas, where the friends won more than $2,000 at the craps and blackjack tables. They told the New York Post that they woke up cabbie Mohammed Alam "with a shower of $100 bills."

The pair told the newspaper the idea for the trip was hatched during a birthday party.

The two friends haven't yet said how they'll get back. The cab driver says a friend will help him make the drive home.
