The Funhog Family 50 State Challenge

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A Valley family of seven is setting off on the adventure of a lifetime. The  Tutens -- aka the "Funhogs" -- are embarking on a roadtrip that will take them to all 50 states.

Brian and Jodi Tuten are bundling up their five little ones -- Kendall (7), Chloe (5), Sydney (4), Elijah (2), Tirzah (1) -- for the journey. They have been planning for quite some time. They've accounted for pretty much everything, including the price of gas.

Brian arranged to take a three-month leave from his job. They leave July 2.
