What can we say? This was our biggest voter turnout yet, and we are thrilled to be wrapping up the main United States portion of our trip with such a wonderfully big bang! Never have we been so broken hearted to skip through a state, and we are very sorry to the great people of North Dakota who gave a really commendable effort and actually held a massive lead for a really long time. That said, we would like to congratulate the South Dakota voters, because clearly you had what it took to win this one, and we are so excited to meet you and the state you fought so hard for!
If you are new to how things work here at alexandluke.com, once a state wins a directional vote we then ask for your suggestions to help guide us around that state. We have received plenty of suggestions already, and will work hard at trying to get to as many as we can, especially ones that come up again and again, or anything that strikes us as especially remarkable or quintessential to the culture of that particular place. So keep the suggestions coming!*
*Note – we love fresh food, and would love nothing more than to hear your suggestions for establishments that might offer us a break from the usual fried-up roadside fare. If you can offer such a suggestion, we will praise your kindness, good looks, and stunning intelligence amongst ourselves in the car on the entire length of the drive up to Canada – thats a promise.
