Traveling Families: S-Z

Sasek Family


We, a father, mother, son, Pug and a Boxer, shed "the box" to hit the road. We, like many, have had dreams of traveling and experiencing life outside the traditional "sticks and bricks." Rich, the husband/dad, had dreams of retiring and traveling. Carolyn, the wife/mom, had a better idea. GO NOW!!! Our goals: Have fun, learn, travel, make friends, help people that are in need and take lots of pictures along the way! ~ Words we live by: Not all who wander are lost.

Shanks Family

Herd of Turtles

Our family made the decision to do away with most of our ties to "normal" life. We scaled down, sold off nearly all our stuff (including our house) in exchange for freedom.

Focusing now on what is most important to us-loving and serving God and people. We have been blessed with the opportunity to take a bus that has been converted into a mobile living space and adventure for a while.

Sorenti-Burns Family

Full Time RV Family

We're the Sorenti-Burns family. No, we're not "professional RVers" at all but we are RVing full time across the U.S. for a whole year. We're just a regular family from Cape Cod, Massachusetts making our way across the U.S. in an RV Full time for a whole year. We consider ourselves very lucky to have the ability to do this. We didn't win the lottery, we don't drive fancy cars (unless you consider our Chevy 2500 Diesel Crew Cab we need to haul our fifth wheel RV fancy) and we're not independently wealthy. Although most of our friends thought (and probably still think) we're kinda nuts, our love of travel drove us to take an entire year to see the U.S.A. in an RV. I mean, what better way to see every nook and crannie, every main street and back road of the U.S. than traveling in an RV full time?

Weaver Family

Weaver Believer Survival Revival

Paul and Chris Weaver have been married for nearly 25 yrs., are blessed with 8 children and reside in the NE GA mountains where they all work together in a small family business~when they're not traveling.

They instilled the love of music in the children at a young age. From the time they were little, they were taken around to sing for shut-ins, nursing homes & small groups~and it grew from there.

When Paul taught them to play instruments, it only added to the music resulting in the birth of the WEAVER BELIEVER SURVIVAL REVIVAL. Since the children are homeschooled, it allows them the time & freedom to travel. They sing in tight family harmony & play guitars, banjos, mandolin, fiddle, acoustic bass & stand-up bass ~ joyfully using their God-given talents to bring honor & glory to the Lord.
