New Addition to the Travel Lexicon: ‘Clark’

It’s derived from the name Clark Griswold, Chevy Chase’s character in Vacation. In recent usage it has two meanings:

1) To World Hum contributor Matt Villano, to Clark is “to overly plan an adventure in an attempt to make sure everyone will have a great time, only to see the plans backfire, causing disastrous results.”

2) To Tony Hawk, to do a Clark Griswold is to practice “efficiency in sightseeing.”

We support both uses.
