    It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad Mad Trip is a reflective travelogue of Post-Newsweek writer Kevin Shay’s, seventeen-day journey across nearly 7,000 miles of America with his car, his son Preston, his daughter McKenna, and his witty sense of humor. The family begins with a D.A.R. statue in Bethesda, Maryland, and journeys past the Great Smoky Mountains, baseball games, halls of fame, water parks, historic sites, and locations that frankly, have no classification. Their great ride from the Atlantic to the Pacific never fails to entertain with fun facts, pictures, and candid commentary by teenage Preston and his younger sister McKenna. A vivid testament to life with kids in its truest form, the trek from the invisible ledge above Chicago to the prairie and Sin City, was only disappointing in that they failed to meet the real Elvis. Or did they? Whether a cross country trip is on your bucket list, or you are reminiscent of life with kids, this Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Trip never fails to entertain. If you... More > are yet to plan your own journey, you’ll find its pages a valuable resource as it is full of locations, addresses, websites, phone numbers, descriptions, fun facts and even GPS warnings. You’ll want a copy to read, research, and remind you that life is always a voyage of discovery. —Laine Crosby, Author of Investigative Medium––the Awakening< Less

    This is a fairly humorous account of a wild trip across the country. My kids liked his kids' tips, especially being polite at Wrigley Field and not mentioning that the Cubs haven't won a World Series in more than a century, but that it's ok to later write about it on Facebook or in a book! I can't believe they made it to so many places. It does inspire me to take the kids on a trip and gives some good resources to check.
