My family and I sent in a video for The Great American Road Trip, a new reality series on NBC. We didn’t make the final cut, but it sure was fun to imagine the four of us in an RV traveling across the US. When we embark on family travel, the first song we play as we pull out the driveway is “Holiday Road” from the National Lampoon Vacation movies.
Last night was the first episode of The Great American Road Trip. It looks like a fun trip, but now I’m kind of glad we didn’t make the cut. I can only imagine how my family would show on camera! The trip began in Chicago, at Wrigley Field. Seven families from all parts of the US took off across the US following historic Route 66. Their stops included Springfield and Madison, IL and St. Louis, MO.
Here’s a behind the scenes look from the host, Reno and some excerpts of the show. You can watch this show on NBC on Tuesday nights.
