About Us

Our family of 6 plus our dog sold everything, bought an RV and have been traveling full-time around North America since May 2014. If we aren’t out climbing mountains, hiking to a waterfall or playing at the beach, we are most likely at the local donut shop trying to find the best donuts in the US! We love talking about RV life and the reality of what it means to live in less then 200 sq. feet with a family of 6 and a dog. We are honest and open about the reality that it isn't all a vacation and there are a lot of challenges that come along with this lifestyle. We also like to share all the cool places you can visit and things you can do with kids around North America. There is no reason that travel and adventure have to stop when you have kids. Traveling with kids adds a whole other element to the experience and is an amazing way to deepen your family bond and to grow as a family. We will also discuss the ins and out of RV living around how we unschool our kids, how we plan where we are going to go, what we love about full time travel, what we hate about full time travel, what the hardest part about it is, and the questions you should ask yourself before making the decision to hit the road full time as a family. We will also share how we afford full time travel and talk about how we started a virtual business in order to fund our full time travel lifestyle. The freedom it has given us to live our dreams and be in control of our day and time is amazing. Living in a camper isn't always rainbows and sunshine, but it definitely makes life interesting and we are so excited to share it with you to hopefully help inspire you, help you plan to get on the road with your family, or just to answer some questions you may have about this lifestyle!
