KOA-Sponsored Family Completes 50-State Trek
When Randy Martin, wife Heidi and kids Kristi and Kyle decided they needed a break from their lives in West Palm Beach, Fla,, they decided to not just go halfway.
The Martin Family, sponsored along the way by Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA), recently completed a 13-month, 67,000-mile trip through all 50 states, according to a news release.
The family is scheduled to appear on NBC’s “Today Show” Thursday morning (Aug. 22) between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. EST. The special segment was taped last week at the West Palm Beach/Lion Country Safari KOA Campground in Florida.
“I wanted to visit all 50 states so that my children had the opportunity to experience what’s best about the U.S.,” said Randy, the CFO for The King’s Academy in West Palm Beach. “Our trip across America allowed us to bond as a family and meet many new friends while learning about American history and culture.”
The Martins said the trip likely wouldn’t have been possible without the support of sponsors like KOA.
“Thanks to Kampgrounds of America for supporting ‘thatTripUSA’ and for many comfortable nights and friendly, smiling faces at, by far, the best campgrounds in America,” Martin said.
The family blogged about their adventures and managed to maintain a complete website about the trip during their travels. yo learn about the Martin’s adventure visit www.thattripUSA.com.
