To Give Their Three Kids the Ultimate Geography Lesson, Billy and Patti Romp Awarded Them a Roads Scholarship
The Romps took to the road to complement the kids' home schooling. "Not only are they seeing the whole country," says Patti, 43, an alternative-health practitioner, "they're feeling the whole country."
The traveling geography lesson—the Romps stick mostly to back roads—has taken them to the New York Stock Exchange, Washington, D.C., and a mid-western steel mill, as well as to more national parks and museums than they cm count. And though they packed camping gear, the family usually stays in the homes of people they meet along the way. "We could never repay the kindness we've seen." says Billy, 46. a freelance writer who sells Christmas trees in Manhattan's Greenwich Village each December.
Around the end of July the Romps will ferry to British Columbia, then to Alaska. After completing the last 1,500 miles of their trip, Billy says, they'll buy a pickup truck and tie the bike to the roof for the journey home. Which should make the return trip a relative romp for the Romp relatives.
