Swerving through the seventies : a family boldly leaves its driveway -- Pioneers of the pavement : the long road to the interstates -- Hey, where's everybody going? : Americans set off to discover America -- Packed in like sardines : join us, won't you? -- Smokeys in the bush : dodging cops (and stops) on the interstates -- Time to pass : diversions, directions and discoveries -- Eating up the miles : dining while driving -- Inn and out : motels, hotels and invaders from space -- Heavy metal highways : land yachts, station wagons and "the Thing" -- Through the windshield together : a crash course in seatbelts and safety -- Up, up and away : all roads lead to the airport -- Leaving it all behind : the end of the road for road trips?
