A father-son crew from Montreal just completed a 2,000-mile road trip to Kentucky — all for a taste of America's finger lickin' chicken.

The two dads and their sons wanted to visit the original Kentucky Fried Chicken establishment in Corbin, Kentucky. For three of the boys, it was the first time they'd ever had KFC.

The two dads and their sons wanted to visit the original Kentucky Fried Chicken establishment in Corbin, Kentucky. For three of the boys, it was the first time they'd ever had KFC.

Their trip started on Thursday and they arrived on Saturday. Altogether, they crossed two provinces and five states.
