On the Road for 17,527 Miles

Here’s a funny one: Would you follow the exact route Jack Kerouac took in On the Road?

I loved On the Road (the book, not the movie), but when I look at these directions I think there is no possible way I would ever follow them. Sure, part of me thinks it would be cool to follow Jack Kerouac’s route across America. But part of me would hate that the road trip lacked the improvisation that made On the Road fun and unpredictable.

Anyway, what about you? Would you use these directions for something?
