They set a record for the longest family road trip in a roughly two-week span, certified by RecordSetter, the Wikipedia generation’s version of Guinness World Records.

    A fine example of the classic "road trip" genre - more "American Family Vacation" than Jack Kerouak. A family adventure written in the style of Bill Bryson, with loads of well researched factoids and an incredible appendix of facts and figures. I found it a bit more baseball-history-centric than I expected but for a ball fan I am sure this would be most welcome. I downloaded the ePub version from Lulu to my Android and found it pretty easy to do and economical as well. It even mentions some of the swimming holes I have on my web site, , for which I am appreciative. Tom Hillegass

    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.
