IRONWOOD - It isn't unusual to see travel trailers and recreational vehicles in the parking lot of Ironwood's Walmart.

One of them, however, stood out from the crowd on Monday morning. It was a tiny teardrop trailer with the back flipped up to reveal an efficient cruising kitchen, complete with a pull-out stove and ice chest.

Eating an early lunch there, as though standing by a street vendor, were Petro Ianitskyi and Hoai Linh Chu.

Ianitskyi said it was their fourth day of travel after leaving Chicago, where they had lived and worked temporarily.
