Have you ever gone on a 'real' road trip? Do you want to see ALL 50 states before you die?
Well, according to scientists, THIS map, created by Randy Olson with help from Tracy Staedter, pinpoints a mix of 50 major national landmarks, national historic sites, national parks adn national monuments.
If you FOLLOW the route suggested, you'll travel across all 48 contiguous states and never leave the country! Check it out for yourself ... and get packing!
f you actually plan to execute the trip, you should budget 13,699 miles of driving — or about 224 hours. Attempting to do the trip in one go would take about 9.33 days, although Olson believes it would actually take 2-3 months to finish in reality.
