In 2009, my family of five embarked on an incredible adventure, one we had dreamed of for years- we became a full-time RV family. After spending far too many nights in hotel rooms with my husband’s job, we finally bought a motor home. For 18 months, we called our 1989, 31-foot motor home, HOME. Though our full-time adventure wasn’t quite what we had expected it to be, I look back on that period of our life with fond memories.
I’ve created this page for those of you that may dream of a life on the road, those who may be on the road or those that are just a wee bit curious as to what the “gypsy life” can look like.
Though our experience was full of ups and downs, I wouldn’t trade our memories for anything. My husband and I look forward to the day that we can hit the road once again and hopefully, fulfill our dream of traveling to each and every state.
