Flying To Phoenix from the Grand Forks International Airport – North Dakota

As in, less than twenty bucks. On a good day, a flight to Phoenix from Winnipeg will cost in the $300-$350 mark. Not an overly expensive flight considering Southwest doesn't fly out of any Canadian cities. :( [caption id="" ...

For many, the idea of a cross continent road trip makes us cringe, but that’s not the case for Joseph Ranseth, a 30-year-old entrepreneur and social media 'evangelist'. He’s out to disprove the notion that technology distances us as a culture, and he’s traveling the distance to prove it. In April 2009, Joseph set out on a road trip from Phoenix to Toronto.
