2009 Ford Flex: Flex Across America Challenge
October 20, 2010
70,000 miles, 24 states and 1 Canadian province. This is the map for our Flex Across America, and although most of those states were checked off on one Mike Magrath road trip, I'm throwing down the challenge right now to check off the rest of these states before we hit the sell-by tally of 100,000 miles.
Since I got British Columbia, I figure that's good enough to wipe out Hawaii. And if someone gets D.C., that's good to substitute Sarah Palinland. But other than that, I say we owe it to the Flex to hit every state in the Union.
But I have a challenge to you dear readers: We need reasons to go to these unchecked states. What should we see? Where should we stop? I'm looking for the sort of places like Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland or Snow's BBQ in Lexington, Texas. I suppose it doesn't have to be food joints that'll surely kill you, but you'll get bonus points for that.
Challenge thrown. Flex out.
