(Newser) – Here's one idea for avoiding the travel costs associated with a destination wedding: Walk there. That's what Joseph Crist and Laura Brunett are doing. The 24-year-olds, who met in middle school, are leaving Michigan on April 15 so that they can make it to their wedding, at Nevada's Lake Mead, by September. "Only crazy people" would do such a thing, Crist tells WJBK, and "we're extremely crazy."

The couple will traverse more than 2,500 miles, including a pass over the Rockies, and plan on walking around 15 miles a day. As for washing their hair on the trip: "I'm shaving my head, she's shaving her head. All sanitary," Crist says. Brunett says the trip will prepare them for married life together; the couple calls it "creative marriage counseling."
