CNN Great Race Home finish line

Millions of you will be traveling today, tomorrow, and into the weekend, facing poor weather, flight delays, jammed highways – in a nutshell, miserable Thanksgiving travel conditions. We signed up three of our own intrepid reporters to join you on the road, along the tracks, and in the sky for CNN's Great Race Home. We followed along on air and online as Nic Robertson, Lisa Desjardins, and Brian Todd raced from New York City to Washington, DC, via plane, train, and automobile, respectively. Here, watch the conclusion to the epic race, as a dead-last Brian Todd comes running into The Situation Room.

Happy Thanksgiving, and safe travels!

The man going 500 mph in the air might be your first choice, but this is Thanksgiving, and all the long-line-missed-flight-delayed-takeoff trimmings could be in play.

Millions of you will be traveling today, and these three will be joining you. Which is the fastest way to get from point A to point B on this crazy travel day? Let's see how they do in this v̶e̶r̶y̶ ̶s̶e̶r̶i̶o̶u̶s̶ quite unscientific venture. Follow along here, on CNN TV, and on Twitter (#CNNGreatRaceHome) from noon ET through the afternoon!
