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.

Every now and then, I miss things. Like my dishwasher, space, an in-house laundry area. But, I get over it fairly quickly. The kids will mention a thing here and there that they miss, and then, quickly move on as well. Except for my daughter. Lately, she has been pretty weepy about a few things. One thing being a stuffed dinosaur that we donated before we moved into the RV. She liked it a lot back then, but it was huge with a long neck and the kids have so many dolls! I thought maybe I actually brought it to my mom's, but so far, it hasn't shown up there either. This dino has been bringing on tears daily for over a week.
Today, her newly-cptured Lady bug, Spots, fly away, despite his mangled right wing. Waterworks.
I am slightly concerned there is a little regression of sorts going on here. Maybe this need to be stationary in CT for so long is starting to wear on her. The vacation-esque quality of the trip is disappearing. I hope the others don't start to feel sad. She seems sad.
Waiting on the next month for things to change and feel different enough to get rejuvenated. The light is at the end of the tunnel...we can start to see it. November is coming. Just have to hang in there a little longer.
