It may be a holiday weekend, but Extreme Travel Trivia never takes a break. That said, prepare for your descent into "Hell." Don't know the drill? Consult the fine print below.
Honeymoon From Hell: Week 1
If you think marriage is tough, check out our Extreme Honeymoon, a kind of nuptial bootcamp. If you can survive this, we guarantee no trips to divorce court (though multiple hospital stays may be in order). But let's start out easy. Ditch the formal duds, dress like a lumberjack, and head for the great Northwest coast. After baptizing your marriage in the calm ocean waters on the coast halfway down the state, you begin a long trek east, slicing across the middle of the state, staggering under the weight of your backpacks and water jugs. Things don't seem too bad until you reach the mountains on your way to the eastern border. Of all things, it is your derriere that is suffering, and worse yet, you have run out of water. But, oh, the joy of scaling that peak, where you feel titanic, on top of the world. There, you discover a gap that will lead you down to a place where you can soak your aching bones. But after you fill your canteens with water, you and your spouse take a long swig -- and only then do you realize what big trouble you're in.
So what's the name of the mountain pass you're on?
