    I set out on an adventure to document every location from the 1983 comedy classic National Lampoon's Vacation. This consisted of Flying to Chicago , renting a car and driving cross country along the same route that Clark Griswold and his family did in hopes of making it to Walley World in California . This was an undertaking that I've wanted to do for a very long time and am proud to say that now it is a reality . Enjoy !

    This video adventure was made possible in part by support of crowd funding and T shirt sales at the two links below :

    Does anyone actually know what those "dirt mounds" are? I do.. and it's not accidental.

    This was well done. Very thorough. My favorite part was the detail given to the remnants of the drinking fountain. You're a good man, and thorough.

    Adam what I like about you is you are an 80's kid trapped in a grown man's body ! 80's magic raped your brain and you like to relive your childhood moments and memories ! I feel you bro ! Nostalgia... life goes by too fast ! We lived an amazing decade and we only realised it once we got older ! Love all your vids bro !

    No way, I just stayed a couple of nights at the Glendale Lodge and had no idea that's where Clark spun out and landed in his parking lot. This clearly explains my Superior driving abilities,,,πŸ˜‚
