In 1982, Marcel and Huguette Robert entered California for a visit. Eighteen months earlier, they had left their Montreal, Canada, home in true pioneer fashion — a covered wagon — traveling 10 to 25 miles a day.

After visiting Los Angeles, Marcel and Huguette planned to take two years for the return trip.

This photo by Gary Friedman appeared in the Dec. 20, 1982, Los Angeles Times. I could not find any additional information on the couple and their travels.
