Summer road trip stories: The Olympic trivia games
Written by Robert Niles
Winter weather getting you down? Warm up with thoughts of summer as we recount a family summer road trip.Tweet
On our road trip this summer, we visited the latest two cities in North America to host the Olympic Games - Salt Lake City and Vancouver.
And there am I (with my back to the camera) next to Vancouver's Olympic Torch, with my kids - several months too late to see any action.
I don't know if your family does this, but one of my tricks to pass time in the car between cities is to challenge everyone to trivia questions about our various destinations. After noting that we'd just visited two Winter Olympic cities, I told them that over the past two summer we'd also driven through the three U.S. cities which had hosted a Summer Olympics.
But what were they?
My wife answered Atlanta almost immediately.
After a couple moments and a forehead slap or two, they figured out Los Angeles (where we live, duh).
But no one guessed the third city.
Can you? (The answer is in the comments.)
