WEB EXTRA: Brad Herzog

Acclaimed author Brad Herzog, 41, and his wife, Amy, 40, have traveled through 48 states in an RV and logged more than 110,000 miles since 1996. Their sons, Luke, 9, and Jesse, 8, have been to 45 of those states.
 
The Herzogs are on the road for their 11th annual two-month RV trip that will take them to 13 states as Brad does research for his new book and blogs on GoRVing.com.
 
Because of the Herzog family's vast experience in traveling by RV, they've been designated the “National Explore America Family” by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association as the industry celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.    
 
Brad and his family, who live in Pacific Grove, Calif., are in the Providence area to offer their unique perspective on exploring America in an RV. While in the area, Brad will be signing his new book, Turn Left at the Trojan Horse (Citadel Press, May 2010), in which he offers his RV road-trip version of the Greek epic The Odyssey.
