Friends of Hudson and Hawthorne Valley Association are co-sponsoring this free screening of a documentary that follows two former network news journalists, husband-and-wife team Hanson Hosein and Heather Hughes, who endeavor to make a 13,000 mile, 55 day trip to some of the most scenic, least traveled corners of the country – without setting one tire on an Interstate highway – without setting one foot inside a corporate chain restaurant, motel, or store.
