Rodger Marsh thinks his run of bad luck might have turned a corner.
Until earlier this month, Marsh had been living in Roswell, N.M. with his wife and two small sons. He said money was tight and the people were mean.
“I had pretty much decided that humans weren’t worth wasting my time on anymore,” he said. “I just didn’t trust people. It was us against the world.”
They had to find something better. His wife, Ronda Odom, found a lead on a nursing job in Charleston, S.C., and the family set off for what they hoped was a brighter future some 1,600 miles away.
