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.

Making Modifications

We've since left this rig, but I thought I'd share some modifications.

RV storage is for sure something upon which can be improved.  

Steve added molding to the 2nd bathroom's cabinet 
so that baskets could securely sit on top.

One shelf creates a vast, unusable area inside the cabinets.  
With scrap wood, Steve built a shelf 
for the 2nd bathroom cabinet...

Hinges allow for easy insertion into the cabinet.

This suction cup toothbrush holder worked well...until it didn't.  
After a while it just didn't want to suck.  And, so it did.

Here's the shelf for the master bath.  
Definitely allowed for more product.

We had an extra soap dispenser for the outdoor shower.  
Not sure why.  
This was a great addition to the 2nd bathroom.  
Screwed into the wall.

We also utilized the 3M Command hooks.   These worked well, when they worked.  But I have to say, MOST of the clear, plastic backings on which you place the sticky strips BROKE!  And you cannot buy replacement clear backings.  So, I have a plethora of nice hooks, and can buy plenty of sticky strips...but the clear plastic backings I cannot get.  And I did write the company.  No go.

A Bevy of Bison

As we traveled through Yellowstone National Park recently, we were lucky enough to get a great, close-up glimpse of these beautiful bison.  Loud grunts, grazing, and crossing the roadway.

This calf was determined to procure some milk from this bull?  cow?  

Determined, but unsuccessful.

Finally, a scolding.
