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.

Life In A Day

Posted on July 29th, 2010 in Kansas,Missouri,Oklahoma,YouTube by luke

Life In A Day was a historic global experiment to create a user-generated feature film, shot in a single day, by the community behind YouTube. On July 24th, we had 24 hours to capture a glimpse of our life on camera. The most compelling and distinctive footage will be edited into an experimental documentary film, produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald (although we aren’t sure if our footage falls into that category).

We documented our Day, from waking up in Tulsa Oklahoma, driving to Arkansas, driving through Missouri, before eventually ending up in Kansas City, Kansas and finally in Lawrence Kansas.

It was an uncharacteristically busy day of traveling for us, and a fun day to record!

The editor behind the movie requested people to submit unedited raw footage so they could pick and choose what they like. Due to this we have over 25 minutes of unedited raw footage that we submitted to the Life In A Day experiment. Some of you have found it on your own already, but if those of you who haven’t found it are at all interested in watching over 25 minutes of us driving, bickering, talking, and driving some more, we have put it below for you.

Warning: It’s not terribly exciting.

35 Votes Will Determine Our Next Destination

Posted on July 23rd, 2010 in Arkansas,Colorado,Kansas,Missouri,vote by luke


Oklahama is the 35th region that we have visited on our roadtrip through every state, province, and territory in Canada and the United States.

To celebrate, the next region to have 35 people vote for it will be the region that we travel to later today. We are in a Whole Foods in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Colorado

The closest city major city in Colorado is 670 miles away from the soup stand we are sitting beside. If Colorado wins we will fill our car up with gas, and start driving the very long drive.

Kansas

If Kansas wins, we can drive to Wichita, Topeka, Kansas City, or Salina and maybe even make it in time for dinner! (depending on where you want us to go) We will make a detour into Siloam Sprins Arkansas before we leave! As, if we don’t go to Arkansas now, we will most likely never return.

Missouri

If Missouri wins we will drive through Arkansas (for the same reasons mentioned above) and head to either Kansas City, MO or St Louis, MO! We are at your mercy.

Arkansas

This is Arkansas’ last chance to be thoroughly explored by us on our trip. If it doesn’t win this time, and Colorado or Missouri do… we will simply be driving through. Leaving Little Rock a mystery forever!

Vote now, there is no Twitter vote today, just use the poll below to make your choice:

T-E-X-A-S

Posted on July 16th, 2010 in Arkansas,Iowa,Missouri,Texas,vote by luke

There are two ways to vote for which direction we travel:
1) On alexandluke.com
2) On Twitter using hashtags

This vote marks the first time that the website vote had one option winning (Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa), the Twitter vote had the other (Texas), and that the amount of Twitter votes ultimately pushed Texas into the lead. It came down to under 10 votes!

Thanks to everyone who voted!

Directional Vote – Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa VS. Texas

Posted on July 13th, 2010 in Arkansas,Iowa,Missouri,Texas,vote by luke

When preparing our next directional vote we realized just how much bigger Texas was than the other States we are currently bordering. It’s bigger in population, it’s bigger in size, and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that it’s bigger in popularity.

We have assembled a team of unlikely allies (Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa) that may have a chance against Texas based on size, population, and attractions. It’s still not an entirely fair fight:

Population
Texas(24,782,302) > Arkansas(2,889,450) + Missouri(5,987,580) + Iowa(3,007,856)

Square Miles
Texas(268,820) > Arkansas(53,179) + Missouri(69,709) + Iowa(56,272)

But, from a voting perspective a vote for either option sends our trip in very different directions. A vote for the Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa coalition will ultimately send us from the French Quarter in New Orleans all the way to the cornfields of Iowa (with visits to the Ozarks, Hot Springs, and the St. Louis Arch along the way). Or, a vote for Texas sends us through it’s eastern border towards Houston and Austin and with Texas being so big we will need your help to decide which direction to travel next (West vs. North)

Should Arkansas, Missori, and Iowa have listened to the saying “Don’t mess with Texas” a bit more attentively? Vote now to decide.

The vote should be visible in the top right corner of the website, and for all you Twitterers out there you can click on the hashtags below to generate a Tweet vote.

The 100 Vote Dash

Posted on June 15th, 2010 in Iowa,Missouri,North Carolina,Virginia,vote by luke

Do you wait to send us to the East coast until hurricane season arrives in the hopes that our website gains popularity with an Abby Sunderland style situation? Do you get us to the Eastern coast (and eventually Florida) before the giant blob of oil off the coast covers the Florida coast? Do you send us to Missouri in hopes that we find $58 in dog poo? Do you send us to North Carolina to try and beat the recently set record for largest Marlin caught in the USA?

Vote now in the top right corner of the website, or on Twitter by using these hashtags:

#MOIAalexluke

#VANCalexluke

As always you can click on the hashtag above to automatically generate a tweet for you.

The faster you rally your friends and colleagues to vote along your lines the more likely we will be in the location you want us to be!
