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.

New Shelves. New Day! Newoo hoo hoo hoo!!!!

We have lived in Eagle for two years and almost two months.  We are still rearranging to make it organized.  No different than a house. I was constantly reorganizing that as well.  A big burr in my side was the large space above the fridge and pantry closet.  Vast.  Open.  Huge.  Plenty of space for plenty of stuff, but, still disorganized all the same.  So, for some reason, at about the 86th time I mentioned it, hubby finally went out and purchased something to help organize the space!  It took a few adjustments, but, I am very, overly, weirdly, thrilled by the results.

before, one of many arrangements 

empty, liking that

New Shelves…metal…sturdy…ooooooh, liking it.


I emptied the drawer below the dinette bench...

and the cabinet below the oven, not to
mention what was already in this cabinet!
More space!

Here's what we used.  It is made to be a three-tier shelf, but, obviously, that wouldn't fit.  Steve hack-sawed the pole used for the bottom two shelves (chopped off 5 sections) so it would fit vertically in our space.  The extra poles created, I screwed onto the top shelf (to the right) and that gave that shelf a little hook to keep it from sliding out of the space during travel.  I can't explain how happy I am about this.
 It's a sign I may need a little more excitement in my life.

Go for it people!  Take the plunge!  Buy shelving!  It may just make your day!
