In early July, Tony Hawk and Catherine Goodman, rounded up their six kids, Riley Hawk, 28, Spencer Hawk, 21, Miles Goodman, 21, Keegan Hawk, 19, Calvin Goodman, 18, and Kadence Hawk, 12, for a highway journey throughout the western United States in an R.V.
“In the beginning of the pandemic, it became pretty clear that the kids were so desperate to get out,” Ms. Goodman mentioned. The two-week highway journey consisted of stops in Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Colorado — all states that the household had by no means explored.
Mr. Hawk and Ms. Goodman, who married in 2015, aren’t any strangers to journey. Prepandemic, Mr. Hawk, the skilled skateboarder, would spend half of the yr touring for work, which included attending skate competitions, fund-raising occasions, and taking pictures commercials, and Ms. Goodman, a theater and movie producer, would usually be a part of.
Quarantine supplied the household, who’s normally dispersed throughout totally different states, the chance to be beneath one roof at their house in Encinitas, Calif. “The pandemic has granted us more time and pushed a much more consistent schedule for us,” mentioned Mr. Hawk, noting that his earlier intensive schedule meant at all times being on-call and flying to totally different locations on the drop of a hat. “It was all a little too hectic and it was really hard to carve out quality time with the kids.”
