A Personal Glimpse

Perry, his wife, Tracy, and their children are passionate about education, travel and America. You might guess that their three passions come together in learning about America through travel. They've visited forty-two of the lower forty-eight states in their quest to see them all, and have seen seven countries.

The family gets most of their travelling education in a pop-up camper.

As a elementary school media specialist, Tracy plans the family's summer travels around points of geographical, historical and cultural interest. And as she drives and supervises the travelling educational tour, Perry negotiates the logistics of how to join the family at strategic points on the journey while maintaining his busy work schedule.

When they are at home, Perry and his family enjoy hiking, the outdoors and spending time together on Lake Lanier.
