Road Trip Quiz Answers and Winners!

Here are the answers to the Summer Road Trip Extravaganza Quiz.
  1. Why did Karlene and Megan take this road trip?
    To pick up a Jeep that Karlene's father sold to her for the price of one homemade butterscotch pie. (But the pie didn't turn out so well, so I have to make another one, or three, when I go to KY in August.)

  2. Who is Megan?
    Karlene's youngest daughter who just graduated from high school.

  3. What happened on the road trip that made Karlene so angry she wanted to swear?
    A truck threw up a rock on the Wyoming freeway and chipped her windshield.

  4. Which stop inspired Karlene with a new book idea?
    Santa Claus, Indiana.

    Nine—Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah.

  10. What was Karlene's favorite state?
    South Dakota. (Judged solely on the state itself, not on the people who live there. Otherwise, it would be #1 Utah, #2 Kentucky.)

    Early Bird.

  15. What would have made this absolutely fantabulous and totally cool road trip even better?
    Having all my family and friends with me.


Unfortunately, no one got a perfect score. Everyone missed #15. However, I gave the winner 1/2 point for her answer because she said one of the things what would make it better was if she came along—which is close.


The winners are:

Perfect Score Winner: Annette Lyon! (with 14 1/2 points)

Five or More Correct Winner: Jennifer Leffler!

Winner chosen at random.
