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.

"Hallin'" Away the Trash

So, Spring is here and we are in full purge mode.  The dumpster was delivered today, and in a few weeks time, it should be filled with remnants of a past life that are no longer applicable.  What's sentimental will be saved; 
what's useable will be sold or passed on; 
what's junk will be dumped.

Along with the plethora of items we are sending away to be trashed will be a roof's-worth of shingles and other roofing paraphernalia.  A new roof will grace the house for the first time since it was built.  If the weather holds out, it should happen sooner than later.  

Ready to Fill


  1. E are a military family with 2 teens who homeschool. We bought our first RV in 2003. We just upgraded to a 45' 5th wheel to full-time. We are doing this to save to build on land we bought to retire on. We love to RV & be together. I'm looking forward to a simpler life & more time together. What modifications did you make to Eagle to full-time? Faucets? Bed supports? Flooring? Insulation?I'd love to hear. We'll give notice May 30 then it'll be real!!

  2. HI. we so far have made no modifications to Eagle. I am sure as we live in it, which will HOPEFULLY be very soon, we will see that we need to make a few alterations, but the layout was perfect for us, which is why we picked it. We will most likely buy bedrails for the upper bunks for safety and storage items for the kitchen and closets in the bedrooms. Eagle is a 4-season so the insulation, in theory, shoudl be fine for the most extreme temps we'll see...not too cold thank goodness.

    Best of luck on your start! I am so anxious to begin myself.
