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.

Repurposing: a new way of looking at things.

One of the biggest challenges of moving into a 382 sq ft home-on-wheels is finding a place for everything you own.  It has been a daily challenge that is ongoing. Progress has been made, I am happy to say, and I expect it shall continue to improve.

Our newest acquisition is this great cabinet that we purchased at Ikea.  

It fit perfectly on the blank wall of the kids' wardrobe and worked very well to conceal many items previously housed here, there, and everywhere.

I can't for the life of me recall the name of it, and haven't found it on the Ikea website.  It's original purpose is to hide shoes.  A lift up, and 12 screws, and it is our new book/paper/magnetic toys holder.  Red was another color option but we thought a bit too bright.

**Thanks to Quahog for providing the product name!@  http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30110832/

Of course, there are some other areas waiting patiently for their turn at organization.
