May be a little too late to take the kids this summer, but wouldn't it be so cool to pack up the car like Clark W. Griswold and hit the open highway?

Ok, I know the 'Vacation' movie was made over 35 years ago and what children did then, what we did then, is a hell of a lot different than what kids do now to pass the time.  Am I right?  Back in the day, we played car games like seeing how many different state license plates we could find, or the 'What I'm taking on a picnic" game.  Or often we would read comics.  Ah yes, I recall many a car sickness from reading in the car.

According to, scientist Randy Olson has mapped the perfect path for you to be able to see all 47 National Parks in this great country of ours.  Apparently, with minimal stops and stay-overs, it would take about 2 months and over 14,000 miles to do the whole thing.  Wow, that is a lot of miles.
