Plan out the Ultimate Pop Culture Road Trip! Sounds pretty easy right? Hmmm... Where do I want to go? Well, for me, it's not so much the destination... it's the journey.
I think I would want to travel across the US and see all of the best and wackiest roadside attractions, and hit a few out-of-the-way Goodwills while I'm at it.
See all my stops after the jump!
First, I'd start with The Desert of Maine. Just the idea makes me smile. A sandy, barren wasteland in the green fertile north.
I'd do a lot of the sites on Route 66, such as:
And the Devil's Rope Barbed Wire Museum
I'd have to swing by Cawker City, Kansas to see the world's Largest Ball of Twine...
I'd swing by Carhenge in Nebraska...
I think the Vent Haven Ventriloquism museum in Kentucky is a creepy MUST see...
(Yes, I am aware that I am geographically all OVER the US at this point)
The Big Shoe Made of Shoes in Missouri...
With a visit to the World's Largest Toy Museum (also in Missouri)
And at some point I would end my journey by dropping off a yellow lunchbox in those big dinosaurs
from The Wizard and Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.
And, as I mentioned above... I would hit every Goodwill along the way:
But wait! That's not all! Other League Members are planning their road trips as well!
- Over at Green Plastic Squirt Gun, Brothermidnight is planning a road-trip that very much pleases my own sensibilities! He's hitting the Unbelievable Mystery Hole, The Bunny Man Bridge (whatever you do, DON'T Google that one!), and the PEZ museum!!!
- The Man Who Stares at Toys is planning on hitting some EXCELLENT toy and comic shops, and visiting a bunch of movie Landmarks from Tarentino, the Coen Bros., and Kevin Smith films.
- In an attempt to Rediscover the 80's, Jason G will be taking an 80's Pop Culture Vacation across the US! He's packing up the Griswold's station Wagon to go Dirty Dancing, Ghost Busting, and... Field Dreaming?
