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 First Trip

Back in July of 2000, Steve and I, along with Rosco and Chumsley,  took our first cross-country camping trip.  We traveled in a 2000 Ford F350 dually diesel king cab truck and towed a 1999 Challenger fifth-wheel. Yesterday, Chumsley passed away, finally joining Rosco after 5 years.  We will miss him, as we have missed Rosco.  Thinking back to this big trip we took as a "family" in 2000 with our first "kids," makes me even more certain that our biological children will thoroughly enjoy this experience.  We learned something new about Rosco and Chumsley on that trip...they did not need to be on a leash to stay with us.  Up in the mountains of Montana they ran and played but never strayed.

Here are some of those memories...
