American Road Trip Talk

The Pirate and The Baseball

Erika Nelson has dedicated her life to hunting down the world’s largest attractions along the American Road and then creating The World’s largest collection of the World’s Smallest Replicas of the World’s Largest Attractions. Erika is an artist and regular columnist who journals here trophy finds in the Think Big column of each American Road Magazine. In the spring 2013 issue, the world’s largest Pirate kidnapped her attention outside of Treasure Island, Florida. Erika not only tells how this unique landmark captured her attention but she also gives us a great reason for taking a second long look at these colossal monuments across America and at their communities.
