Fantastic Pointless Roadtrip

in n outI love taking students on spiritual journeys. I call them “pointless road trips.” In other words, I like to pile a few students into the church van to drive a long way for something fairly benign. My personal favorite was driving to Grand Rapids (2 hours) to watch a movie.

But Stuart Delony is taking it to a whole new level. He is taking a couple of leaders and several students on a 1000 mile quest for an In-n-Out Burger. For those who have never tasted In-n-Out burgers let me just tell you that 1000 miles may not be too far. They are the king of the fast food burger.

Here’s what he writes:

This is actually a contemplative journey for 6 high school students that happens to involve fast food, visiting churches as we drive, prayer, questions and camping on the Oregon coast. link

Hey man, if the boss bought that line than you are my hero. Enjoy the ride!

  1. A reader emailed me that she’d drive from suburban Detroit to Kentucky for a Sonic burger.

    I hate to admit it, but I’ve driven to Canton just to get a burger at Culver’s as they are my favorite fast food burger.
