A little thing I like to call "Operation Wedding Dress" (aka, my dress is too small... but it won't be soon!)

My FI's goal is to visit all 50 states before he's 35. So this why why we chose Alaska, also he was orig. going to propose on the cruise! lol. So after we go to seattle and Alaska he will only have 6 states until he reaching his goal.

Where are you from??

 

Our parents had the best time to live... things were cheap enough to go do things like cross country trips, go traveling in europe, with or without kids

 

 

now our generation is soooooooo out of luck. We are so broke all the time because the simple cost of living is sooooo expensive! UCK.

 

Okay, /end rant about life unfairness

Im in MB. (winnipeg)

 

They did. his long story short was he drove from vancouver to the east coast on 1000.00 in his car( i cant remember what kind) they camped on some slanted rock in ontario, and i cant remember the rest of the story. and they were gone (my mom and dad) for 2 months on the 1000.00 and drove all the way back to vancouver and just when they got home after he said "wow my car made it all the way across canada and back" it died and they had to get it towed lol.

 

And I agree about us being out of luck! like gas is 1.35 a litre here! what the hell is that! its almost cheaper to drive to the boarder and fill up and drive back!!! Honestly they better start uping wages.. something has to give.

 

ok now im done my rant on it lol

all this talk about travelling! I'm jealous. My FI wants to do Vegas for his Bachelor Party.. I want to go so bad! haha but we def can't afford for both of us to go before the wedding. His best man and him have been talking about Vegas since his best man got married like 7 years ago, so I can't take that away from him lol. I've barely been anywhere.. Pensacola (Marine base), Cuba, and Orlando... I've lived in Ontario my whole life and have not been anywhere else in Canada.. embarassing I know.. My dream is to do a road trip from the east to west coast.. but like you guys have, cost of living and debts these days have made luxuries like that not really possible. I even feel guilty spending the money we intend to on our wedding rather than putting it towards a house or debts.. blah!

Well you arent missing much in Saskatchewan.. Just drive past that and dont even stop hahaha JK but really.. its pretty boring driving thru there. Even thru manitoba. Not much unless you go to Riding mountain or whiteshell. Alberta and BC are good to go to.. beautiful driving thru the mountains and drinking the fresh water from the mountain is awesome. I love doing that everytime i drive thru there.

 

I def want to head east sometime soon.. Damn cost of living. Thankfully we got our house and we are set for that but that was 2 years ago. Now we probably couldnt afford it..

He isnt missing much in northdakota! lol We just go down to Grandforks because its a 2 hr drive from where we live so its something to do once in a while instead of driving 8 hrs to minneapolis, But we go there at least once a year.. It use to be more then that! lol
