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.

Surfing in Virginia

Posted on July 8th, 2010 in favourites,Suggestions,Virginia,YouTube by alex

When we were in Virginia Beach a few weeks back the Virginia Beach CVB and a great company called Surf And Adventure hooked us up with some kayaking through a wildlife refuge and surf lessons at Sandbridge Beach. Our instructors were awesome guys, and it was a perfect day and a perfect spot to be enjoying some water sports. Unfortunately our video footage of kayaking didn’t really turn out – so we only have the surfing to show you. I loved our teacher – Nick Brown. He was the quintessential surf instructor – watch above to see what I mean!

Thanks @surfadventure at @VabeachCVB!

More on this later (we got some great video footage), but for now, lets just say days like today we are reminded why our choice to live out of a car for 8 months is worth it.  We want to extend a big thanks to the awesome guys at Surf & Adventure!

(Hi Sam and Nick and John!).

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:

The Big Vote – OHWV vs. VANC

Posted on May 19th, 2010 in North Carolina,Ohio,Virginia,vote,West Virginia,YouTube by luke

The next directional vote on alexandluke.com is our first ever double state vote. We have teamed up Ohio and West Virginia to see if they have what it takes to take down Virginia and North Carolina.

There are three reasons we are doing a double-state vote:
1) We have to drive or fly home to Toronto on Thursday May 27th for Alex’s Brother’s wedding. This is the only time on the entire trip that we will not be travelling based on suggestions. If Ohio and West Virginia win, we will drive back to Toronto. If Virginia and North Carolina win we will be flying back to Toronto and will need to book our flight sooner rather than later so we have money to eat on Month 6 of alexandluke.com

2) We have been running a lot of directional votes recently, which may make it seem like voting isn’t that important! It is important, we need you to vote! By grouping states together, your votes will push us farther across the continent making the penalties of a State losing a vote more severe.

3) Ohio and West Virginia straight up hate Virginia and North Carolina

Vote now, on the poll in the righthand sidebar! Or, on Twitter using these hashtags:

#OHWValexluke

#VANCalexluke

We usually enter everyone who votes on Twitter into a contest to win a great prize, this week is no different. We understand that some of the people who come to our website don’t use Twitter, if you fall into this demographic let us know in the comments below and we will enter you into the contest as well!

VOTE CLOSES 12:00pm EDT Thursday, May 20th

Also, why not tell your friends and family to vote on our direction! They will love it!
