One young family doesn’t let Covid-19 stop their epic voyage from Brooklyn to L.A. This is the story of their saga, and the amazing people they met along the way.
When my family and I decided to move from New York to Los Angeles in February, we planned for everything short of a worldwide pandemic. But that’s just what happened.
We didn’t let Covid-19 stop us. Instead, we rented an RV, packed our 6 week old daughter and 2 year old son into it and hit the open road. We had to move forward. We had no other option.
This series is the document of not just our journey, but of all the incredible entrepreneurs, small-town politicians and ordinary Americans we encountered along the way.
