From Discovery Channel:
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a map that hit landmarks in every state and not only that, wouldn’t it be great if the map represented the optimal, most efficient route across the country?
Who could pull off such a map? The first person Discovery Channel thought of was Michigan State University doctoral student Randy Olson.
They challenged him to come up with a trip having three simple parameters:
- It would make at least one stop in all 48 states in the contiguous U.S. That means no state is left out!
- Each stop would be at a National Natural Landmark, National Historic Site, National Park, or National Monument
- It would be a true road trip, taken by car and not leave U.S. soil.
