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.

Saskatchewan Directional Vote!

Posted on October 23rd, 2010 in Road Trip,Saskatchewan,vote by alex and luke

You gave us many great destinations in Saskatchewan to add to this directional vote, so we took ten and created the poll below. Now its time to figure out which ones we will be exploring! The top three destinations that are voted for will be visited, and we will figure out a logical route once they are determined!

For many of you, some or all of these places are complete unknowns. If you would like to know more about the towns and cities below, click on their names and you will be directed to a site that offers more information so that you can make an informed decision… or just pick the one with the best name! How you vote is up to you… now vote away!

Regina (the capital city of Saskatchewan), Moose Jaw (contains a very large, if not the largest, moose statue), Langbank (a hamlet with a population of 30), Gravelbourg (“a touch of Europe on the prairies”), Melfort (“City of Northern Lights”), Craik (a progressive town with a sustainable living project underway), Rouleau (AKA Dog River, host to the television show Corner Gas), Saskatoon (a lively youthful city said to be a pleasant surprise to visitors), Prince Albert (the “Gateway to Northern Saskatchewan”), Swift Current (a southern town with the least smoke and haze in the whole country)

This poll will close on Monday evening (the 25th of October) at 8 pm EST.

The Saskatchewan Vote… its in your hands!

We are starting our long journey east towards Ontario – the province where it all began – but before we get there we have two pretty amazing provinces left to explore.  For those of you who haven’t noticed, Canadian provinces are a lot larger and arranged a lot more linearly than our cousins to the south, so we are not able to hold directional votes quite like we used to.

However, we still want YOUR input to help us navigate our way through these two provinces, and here is what we came up with…

We want YOU to set the options for this next vote.  In the comments below, on twitter or on facebook, tell us which city, town, or village in Saskatchewan you want us to add to the next poll.  We will take the first 10 destinations you suggest and open it up to everyone for the big vote!

What are you waiting for??? Suggest away!

Directional Vote

Posted on October 8th, 2010 in Alberta,Road Trip,Saskatchewan,vote by alex

We’re making our way back to Canada tomorrow after visiting every State in the United States except for Hawaii and Vermont. We’re excited to be heading back to our home country! But, we need your help to figure out what Province we will enter into Canada from.

Saskatchewan

Fans of North Dakota and Saskatchewan should vote for this option. We will drive from Deadwood, South Dakota through the length of North Dakota, passing through the Little Missouri Grassland before ultimately crossing the border and driving to Regina, Saskatchewan! North Dakota lost a vote, and as a result we haven’t seen the State at all! This option would allow us to experience a State we have yet to truly visit.

Alberta

Fans of Montana, and Alberta should vote for this option. We will drive from Deadwood, South Dakota through a small portion of North Dakota before heading west through a large unexplored region of Montana. We would then head North and travel through Lethbridge before ending up in Calgary, Alberta.

Both options are amazing from our perspective, and we don’t have a preference! Which is a great way to conduct a vote.
