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.

Filling in the Gaps

We have had this space behind our couch between that and the window.  A good space for items to fall down into.  So after talking about it for several months, Steve finally created a little table/shelf for the space.  The whole project cost about $4.20.  He used scrap wood from Home Depot and 2 dowels to create a very narrow table which slides in behind the couch and sort of wedges into the space  between the window valances.  He may paint it.  It is just short of touching the couch so we'll keep our eyes open for a slightly wider piece.  The quick, cheap project is working out quite nicely.



very simple
