the lower 48 {hello, Alaska}

Today brings a simple vocabulary lesson:
Alaskans call the continental United States "the lower 48" or "the States."
As in: "We're headed down to the lower 48 next month." or "Have you spent much time in the States?"
Hawaii is just called Hawaii and is a crazy popular vacation destination for Alaskans since it's just a five and a half hour direct flight to Honolulu. We love Hawaii.
