Five months after Katie Reider died, her partner of 10 years, quit her job at BMW, gave away, or sold many of her things and climbed into a blue MiniVan with three suitcases a small Canon HD video camera and her two sons,
4-year-old Aiden and 2-year-old Koen to embark on a year long journey across the country.
