Howdy folks!

My wife and I, along with our 7 year old son, began fulltiming it about two months ago. We had a rough start - the transmission caught fire and then my wife hurt her back incredibly badly - but both the RV and the lady are back in business and we're back in action.

We've been writing campground reviews, generally blogging and making videos of some of the places we visit, as well as some other "humorous" RV home improvement videos over at our website if anyone's interested.

We're lucky enough to have gotten a spot at an amazing campground in Austin, TX - right in the thick of it - called Pecan Grove. So far, so good!

We've been full-timing since 2004. Haven't had the pleasure of a burning transmission yet but there's still time. However, we had a baby last February and she's really spiced things up, so to speak. I'll check out your site. Maybe we can compare notes. Best of luck.

I have a question that may be a little personal. We are seriously considering going on the road full time with our 13 y/o twin boys. We want them to experience history instead of reading about it before they get too old and need to get their own jobs to get on with what is considered normal everyday life. My question to you is how do you make money and stay mobile and free to travel whenever you want. I realize that you can settle in an area for a time and get a traditional job but our goal is to be able to travel wherever and when ever the urge strikes. I am researching business ops but have not found any one particular that seem interesting or something that I think will sustain a family of four and four dogs on the go. Any advice or pointing in the right direction would be appreciated as we are anxious to get started.

We truly believe that it will be cheaper to live on the road than it would be to stay in our home. My husband has traveled throughout the US while younger but I have not so my children and I are going to want to do quite a bit of site seeing as well.

I am eagerly waiting for some advice and ideas. Thanks in advance for your time.

Some people work seasonal jobs such as construction, National and State Parks as rangers, some follow rallys selling their goods and some work at rv parks along a chosen route again usually seasonal. Some also work security guard work again seasonal. You might want to look at Workamper.com
Good luck to ya
