Have you ever met someone that you just knew was your kindred spirit? Okay, I’ve never actually met Traci at Go Big or Go Home, but I just know we would be kindred spirits mostly because we share an affinity for unusual roadside attractions. I have unashamedly admitted my obsession with roadside kitsch in the past, and I have even gone so far as to stalk a giant soup can, but Traci is the queen of all things big. Traci and her family come from a small town, but they are on a mission to visit the world’s largest, tallest, and biggest. On the way they have visited the world’s largest gnome, the world’s tallest filing cabinet, and eaten the Craz-E burger (you’ve got to see this burger to believe it!) If it’s big, Go Big or Go Home knows all about it and Traci will give you the 411 about visiting.
For the first time in my life, I think I might have actually been in the know about the upcoming trends, because Go Big or Go Home was just named one of the twelve blogs you should be reading in 2012. Big stuff is happening over there and you won’t want to miss one giant minute!
Today I am sharing about our own brush with “greatness” at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The Museum of Science and Industry is actually a big site all on its own, as the biggest science museum in the western hemisphere. Inside it also houses the Guinness world record certified world’s largest pinball machine. Traci was kind enough to let me share about the pinball machine and our experience at the MSI. Just how big is the world’s biggest pinball machine? Check it out on Go Big or Go Home.
By the way, Traci is so dedicated to bigness all over the world that she suggested that the giant soup can picture be our family Christmas card picture. Today’s picture is for you, Traci. Thanks so much for allowing me to do a guest post. May 2012 be a big one for you and yours.
