The Order

We’ve been wanting to create this video since we ended our road-trip in December. This is the order in which we visited every State, Province, and Territory in Canada and the United States as controlled by YOU, the followers of alexandluke.com.

Enjoy,
alex and luke.

PS: The First Band/Person to create a YouTube video of them covering the song used in this video gets an alexandluke.com prize.

Iowa snatches a late victory!

We thought we would be driving to Minnesota for sure when we started on our drive to Des Moines this morning, but low and behold the Iowa voters staged a massive comeback on the last stretch of highway and it looks like we are staying put!

Thanks for voting everyone! If you have Iowa suggestions or things you would like us to report back on in this mighty state, let us know!

So this brings us to Round One of The Final States Showdown! This round is Iowa vs Minnesota and (pay extra attention here) the loser will merely be driven through, while the winner will have our full, undivided attention for a number of days. I know that sounds harsh, but time is ticking, and we have to keep our pace up on the home stretch of the last six states so that we can get ourselves back to Canada before we are in danger of getting in trouble with customs, AND so that we can find ourselves way up in the Canadian territories and back again before they completely freeze over.

So what will it be? A few days in Iowa, or a few days in Minnesota??? Do you want us to visit the Mall of America (Minnesota), or the birthplace of Ashton Kutcher (Iowa)? As always, its up to you!

Although Misconsin (our combination of Michigan and Wisconsin) is beautiful, on Monday we will have to move on to our next state. Will the current trend of sending us west continue? Or, will we start heading towards the south? Will we be in Chicago, Minneapolis, or Des Moines for Dinner on Wednesday! Will we be in the land of corn, the birthplace of Judy Garland, or deep dish pizza.
