I have so many questions I'm almost overwhelmed, almost, but not quite. The "new" world I'm discovering is so exciting to me. Never being in the same place one moment longer than desired, socializing the children with people who have the kinds of "old school" personal values and ethics that I want my kids to grow up with and the chance to experience new people places adventures and relationships are some of my favorite reasons for this strong desire I have to pack up and hit the road forever.
I've always loved travel as has the family, we're always bummed when the hikes are over or the road trip's done and it's time to go back to what we all hate doing in hopes that it will afford us another trip on a less demanding day and one of the only thing that really stops us from buying a rig and leaving tomorrow is the way we make money. We are wrapped up in traditional employment experiences, but both of us know we have the drive, skills and intelligence necessary to learn and do just about anything and we've come up with a few ideas as to how we can afford ourselves a sustainable living while living, working and educating our children on the road, but we were hoping to hear from others who work while on the road.
As of now we are looking at investing in a voltage3950 or fuzion395 toy hauler 5th wheel (though we have yet to physically step inside either model since we can't find one within 6 hours of here) and an f-450 to haul it around...We would really like something much smaller and fully intend to downgrade later, but with two kids homeschooling we felt more room would be healthier for them. In addition to more room to move in the living space we love the idea that the toy hauler comes with a garage, something we were originally turned off by as gross excess (since we don't have "toys"), that is, until we realized how important it would be to have a place to keep all the tools and supplies we'll need to run our own service oriented businesses from the road.
I really look forward to getting more thoroughly acquainted with the way you folks live...I admire it, I envy it, and I hope that one day my family and I can participate in it. I can't wait for "the day" to arrive but I understand I have a lot of instruction to recieve from you, my teachers, and a lot of homework to complete as I'm sure you all will have plenty of "try this" type ideas to further my technical understanding of how this lifestyle works for my family. Thank you all in advance for being so willing to help folks find the "right path".
