New PBS Series. Ride Of Our Lives:

The better half and I were doing a little mindless channel-surfing Sunday afternoon and came across a remarkable new series on PBS.
Mike Leonard of the Today Show gathered up his adult kids, his parents, and loaded them into a pair of rented RVs for a one month tour of the country.
A dreary Sunday afternoon turned into a compelling look at the interplay between the generations and Mike discovering his parentís history.
Hereís a link to the Chicago PBS station and a short video clip. WTTW - Featured Clip - The Ride of Our Lives
Check your local schedule. A quick search found it to be starting in April on a number of stations.
No, there arenít any Airstreams yet, but if the first two episodes we saw yesterday are any indication of the rest of the series I think youíll find it well worth watching.

Tom and Sue.

I watched the preview. Looks like a fun show. I was gonna barf too if they did much more filming inside the RV.

Have not seen previews for this in the northeast so far.

Thanks for sharing.

Better get the Dramamine on board
From watching the first two episodes Iíll bet the setup for most of the stories will be the comments his parents make about what they experience while driving. He spent at least 5 minutes about kids wearing caps backwards. Gets his father all riled up.

Tom.

The book is hilarious and touching - read it if you can get a copy. His mom is a RIOT!
