Are We There Yet?, 1985

Summary

As the interstate highway system expanded and automobiles became more reliable, the distance of the average automobile trip lengthened. Families traveling long hours looked for ways to occupy restless children while on the road. Rand McNally, a company known for its road maps and atlases, produced this book of family-oriented games, puzzles, and quizzes in the 1980s.
