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.

Prayer, Paint, and Perseverance

Once the new roof is on, it will sell.  Once the paint is done, it will sell.  Once we bury St. Joe, it will sell. And the price gets lower, and lower, and lower.  And it still isn't sold.  Isn't sold?  It isn't even getting seen!  I am more than a little insulted and very much worried that we will not see this dream happen.  

Today we had an open house...house is clean and shiny ready to welcome the throngs of tire-kickers.  No one came...again.  Deja Vu.  Really?  I mean, really?  This house has never looked so good.  People, you do not know what you are missing!

It's hard to keep a stiff upper-lip and not get a sour stomach during this frustrating time.  Today, I am not feeling so confident.  But, there is no turning back.  It will sell.  There are just no other acceptable options.

  1. Oh my gosh!!!! YES IT WILL SELL!!!! I feel your pain. We are selling our home, too. Selling a home is definitely harder than buying one. It's so draining and stressful. Did you get an appraisal? I know, spending more money, but I'm telling you, it really doesn't even matter if the buyer wants to buy your house. GET AN APPRAISAL. This person is the one who really decides how much money you will get in the end. Even if the buyer wants to buy your house and you want to sell it to them, if the bank says no to your price, the deal will not go through.
