One thing that we have learned to be consistent across this country is the concept of tradition. Though America is a relatively young country in the scope of the world, we’ve still managed to build a whole lot of traditions for ourselves. These include, but are not limited to: Explosions on the Fourth of July, Superbowl commercials, pumpkin growing contests, groundhogs predicting the weather, tailgate parties, holiday fruitcakes, turkey pardons, and countless more. On a more personal level, even the great American road trip is a tradition in itself. It is something that all Americans dream of and many go on to complete. In reality, our trip itself was just one small piece of the entire narrative of road trips this country has seen. And while we fancy our experience closer to Steinbeck’s journey in Travels with Charlie than Chevy Chase’s in National Lampoon’s Vacation, we could not fathom letting go of the age-old tradition of taking pictures with each and every state sign that we passed. Failing to do so would be, well, simply un-American. Although we did miss a few (Nevada and Illinois to be precise), we’re proud to present the grand summation of our playful continuance of this great American tradition.
