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.

Check Your Pinch-able Areas

     Hitched up and ready to pull in the slides and Steve notices that an extension cord is stuck between the bench seat frame and the wall.  Huh?  Stuck. Really stuck?  How the heck did that get there? We wiggled. We pulled. We unscrewed screws.

     Then Jo suggested bringing the slide in. Maybe the gap widens as the slide comes in and that's how the cord fell in between.  Steve brings the slide in, but we see no larger gap. So, we go back to pulling. Yank. Pop.  It's out.  An indent in the wall is left behind. The laminate trim is broken, somewhat.  But, the cord is out.

     Perplexed still, we put everything back together.  And Steve FULLY closes the slide.  Voila!  There's the gap Jo predicted.  Would have slipped out nicely if the slide was fully closed.

So, check those pinchable areas before and after you close your slides.
