Our Story

Welcome to our site! We are Joanne & Steve. After 20+ years working for a city school department and police department, we sold almost everything, bought an RV, and started living on the road with our three children. Joanne homeschools and works online.
What we have chosen is to live life as unencumbered as we possibly can and to spend time with our family, for our family, and as a family.
This website is a record of our travels. But, we also hope to educate, entertain, and inform others about RVing, roadschooling, and the great places we visit in this country.

The Big Decision

Selling most of what you own, leaving your home, jobs, schools, family, and friends to start a new life, one that is unknown and unplanned, sounds like, to many, a crazy idea. Maybe it is. Maybe that's why very few people actually do it. Instead of crazy, I would prefer the term "daring." It's the unknown that is attractive...not scary. To me, this static life has become scary. The monotony of the day-to-day is stifling. What should be a safe feeling, being home and secure in that home, is coming with a high price...work, work, work...and very little opportunity to enjoy spending time with my husband and children.

Since we have made this big decision, Steve and I have had one common goal...and, I think it is the first time we ever have shared one goal. Before, what drove us was mostly material-related, whether it was to get something, or build something, or go somewhere. Now, what we are striving to acquire is experience. Of course, we'll need to have some "things" in order to do this. I am no martyr...I am not living in a beat up 1979 camper or tenting it. But, what we will have when we are through is 95% less Stuff, and 500% more Experiences.

It will be a long process in planning this new adventure. Any questions you have are welcome...we need answers to these questions. If we don't yet have them, we need to find them.
So, join us, virtually, in our Journey of a Lifetime.
