I love the Zoolander excerpt!

I'd skip 10, but 12 definitively.
They didn't even include Yosemite!? Shocking.

Agree. During 2010, I almost drove there every month for camping as long as the road was not closed.

It's just a superb park. I can't wait to go climbing there.

It is more than superb.  Nothing matches laying in the meadow, looking up into the brightest blue sky in the Spring.  Peeking up when butterflies dart around the bloom of the wildflowers.

The drought keeps the falls from flowing.  :(

Lots of cool places on it, but they did miss some of the most impressive, at least in my opinion. The North shore of Lake Superior is one. Beautiful (but cold) beaches, great hiking, and gorgeous waterfalls.

Yes, the absence of Yosemite is a gross negligence. Hmm...add things in that they've missed, or use as an excuse to go back around? ;)

Definitely go back around! There are too many amazing places to see in this country on one trip.

There are so many things to see in this world. I've been to Paris and traveled France a lot, but I still want to go back and see new things. There are many countries I want to see for the first time, others I want to see again. I guess it goes down to priorities.

I adore road trips. I've driven through every state except Alaska and it's far and away the best way to see the US. As for routes, that one you linked to isn't bad :-) Make sure to drive up the Coastal Highway in California, see the Rockies from the plains of Kansas, wind through the marshes of the Carolinas, and cross the wasteland of West Texas. And that's just a start...
