"Today" correspondent Mike Leonard decided to take a month off to accompany his aging parents on a journey to the places of their youth, along with a number of American landmarks. He tells the story of their RV trek with good humor, recalling their fascination with the roadside landscape, as he reveals how his parents, always blunt and unique, deal with the indignities of age and memories of the past. Although there are tense moments as the family awaits news of a new addition to the family, his tone is usually comic. Leonard's ride won't necessarily teach you anything about family relationships, but it's an entertaining yarn you'll enjoy on your own road trips.
