Prior to filming, director Peter Faiman and writer/producer John Hughes and producer Richard Vane took a road trip throughout Georgia, The Carolina's (North and South), Mississippi and Tennessee to scout the route the film's characters, Dutch Dooley and Doyle would take to drive back home to Chicago for Thanksgiving. Faiman liked most of the places that he'd seen during the trip and they ended up in final film.
