Road trip through California with 5 kids sound fun? What about doing it on foot?


Good morning. I'm A Martínez. If road tripping through California with five kids sounds fun, how about doing it on foot? Danae and Olen Netteburg are hiking the more than 2,000-mile Pacific Crest Trail with kids ages 2 to 14. That's after hiking the Appalachian Trail and the Continental Divide trail - together over 5,000 miles. They told CNN that they nicknamed their youngest dead weight, probably because the kid's always in a carrier. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
