The Ultimate American Roadtrip

I’ll be honest, I’m linking this article just so I can remember for the next time I have enough money to do something crazy like this. The article is How to Really Drive Across the U.S. Hitting Major Landmarks and it manages to hit every continental US state and nearly every major landmark you’d want to hit like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, and a host of others.
