National Lampoon's "Vacation" Come To life...Or Not
Halfway home in Laramie, Wyoming, Polly Craft passed away in her sleep.
Family members agreed they should press on. They drove for another 1,000 miles with the 79-year-old's body resting peacefully in the motor home bed. On Saturday, they finally made it to Oregon, where Polly Craft will be laid to rest.
“They said a doctor had told them, based on her condition that if she did die, they should continue to drive to their destination,” said Lt. Michael Rouches with the Hillsboro Police Department. “She had a personal physician here in Hillsboro and the idea was that the physician would have her medical records and information about her condition."

If she was that sick, why were they driving her around the country anyway? And what kind of doctor gives advice like, "Oh yeah, and if Grandma passes, you just keep on driving..."
I'm glad that didn't happen in MY camper, ew!

That is too much. Granny would have had to get out at the next closest town. Too weird for me.
