Couple Will Backpack 2,500 Miles Across Country to Their Wedding


In this accidentally hilarious local news video, eerily reminiscent of a Christopher Guest film, an adorable couple, Joseph Crist and Laura Brunett, tell of their plan to backpack to Las Vegas and then Lake Mead from Canton, Michigan, a 2,500-mile trip that they describe as “creative marriage counseling.” Nothing can go wrong, here. Nothing. Except maybe this news clip. And having to shave your head before your wedding for sanitary reasons. Anyway, mazel tov! They set out in 11 days.
