Some families are on the road fulltime because of their jobs. Be it construction, entertainment, webdesign, health care providers, truckers and work campers. Others have saved up and taken an early retirement.

The Possible Dream
One family putting aside the typical "American Dream" and making their own dreams of travel, simplicity and being debt free, come true. We are a family of 4, mom, dad, a tween daughter and a teen son and one dog. Our family calls a 29ft travel trailer home after downsizing from a 5,000 sq ft home.

Symphonies of Hope
We have been travelling with our family for several years from where we started in Wisconsin, through Mexico, all the way to Guatemala...In our van pulling a homemade 8x20 popup camper. We have started several small Christian orchestras along the way, teaching violin to children who have few opportunities in difficult places. We and all of our children play string instruments and sing. We hope to bless and encourage as many people as possible with our small Symphony of Hope.

We are an average, young family from Indianapolis. After graduating college, getting married, starting a business, and getting pregnant, we were overwhelmed with how scripted our life had become. We began looking for alternatives, more unconventional ways. We connected with several lifestyle design bloggers and began redesigning our own life. We began by selling the unnecessary things in our life to pay off consumer debt. That led into selling everything, so we could travel abroad. We began full-time traveling two years ago with Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand. We are exploring the US via our Class C Motorhome since Jan 2011!

Barnes's Road Schooling RV Adventure
My name is Jeff, I am the father of four awesome 'minions' and the husband to a wonderful wife. We plan to spend the next month living in our new 2013 Cougar High Country as a way to learn about home schooling on the road. As a health care consultant, I have been given the opportunity for an extended stay on location. We thought it would be a great opportunity to experience something new, grow as a family, and just see where this adventure takes us. Wish us luck, I am sure we are going to need it.

The formulas are failing. Jobs no longer mean security. Houses no longer mean equity. Retirement no longer means travel. 9/11 pushed us out of the corporate world to self employment. Add in homeschooling and we're not tied to anyone else's agenda or schedule. At some point that we could put wheels under life - we labeled it our "Pipe Dream" and filed it away until last fall. Determined to take it seriously and not miss the opportunity we have with our kids we dusted off the dream and renamed it Boyinks4Adventure.

We are a family of 4, me, the wife, our daughter and new son. My wife and I are in our late twenties and our daughter is 4 and we have recently determined that the best course of action for us at this time in our lives is to make our home a motorhome. I am a full time student with all of my class conducted online. This is a wonderful time to be traveling, we have young kids and I am not tied down to a job. And I have never seen the ocean. What more reason is needed?

This is our story of our journey to find our true values and apply them to our lives.Watch us change everything about ourselves as we move from the six figure funded ties which bind the American middle class to Cage Free movement toward our true dreams; a farmstead funded healing community. In this crazy, overcomplicated world where we begin to feel like slaves to our possessions this little family of 7 (1 mom, 1 dad, 3 kids and 200 lbs of dog) made a leap. We donated all of our belongings and bought a 25 year old RV to hit the road and teach our kids, and ourselves, a thing or two about the differences between *want and need*.
