As Oprah and Gayle got out at the Colorado-Kansas border to do a "happy dance," they met some fellow road-warriors who stopped to see what all the cameras were about. The Marunzak family, from St. Louis, was on their way to Colorado.
"One of the reasons I wanted to do this trip was to experience America and Americans in a way that you don't get to do sitting in a studio," Oprah says.
Oprah and Gayle even learned a valuable lesson from the Marunzaks...how to properly pack food for a road trip. "This is our treat box—the 'yum yum' box," Mrs. Marunzak said. She had snacks, water and diet soda. Oprah even scored a couple of pretzels from the yum yum box.
"Their stuff looked really good in that cooler," Oprah said. "I wanted to take their drinks, but I think that's rude. But they did it right. We didn't do it right."
