Come visit Colorado!!
We definitely plan on it!
Kudos. Great information! https://bucketlist.org/idea/6LiG/ideas-to-assist-properly-deal-with-nervousness/
As soon as I detected this site I went on reddit to share some of the love with them. gcaagcgegbae
My parents did this for me and my siblings while we were growing up! I was 9 when we got our RV. Our 12 months turned into 7 years. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. I hope to do it with my own children someday!
Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for sharing that, Jamie! Seeing as how our oldest is 9 and I always worry he’ll hate us for this one day. Glad to hear you had fond memories.
i came across your site from Laura Tremaine who I follow on social media and love!
i cried when i read her little blurb on who you were and what you were doing in her newsletter.
and then i watched this video as i had SO many questions! and i cried through the whole video. and still crying! ha!
im crying because in the pit of my stomach ive always felt this is something we should be exploring or doing! i have a 9, 6 and 5 year old. we both work full time we LOVE our house, community and schools. but in the same breath it overhwhelms me, all of it. i relate to everything you spoke about. and it scares me to pieces to leave it all, that what if i make this life altering mistake? what if its a complete disaster!
and then i think about logistics, how do your kids play team sports? or what about friends? for yourselves and your kids? would it be lonely? what about a sense of community? will i really be able to homeschool my kids? will i have the patience?
i mean my questions go on and on! i will have to explore your site more as maybe you touch on these topics and more. good luck to your travels and ill be following!
April, I’m so glad you came by and took the time to get to know us! Believe me, I SO GET IT. I understand all those feelings and those what ifs. And I don’t even have answers for most of them still. This life is a daily practice in letting things go. There are a lot of sacrifices- like team sports and alone time and date night. But, for us, this is temporary. It’s a reset. It’s a once in a lifetime experience that will shape who we are as a family. It’s not for everyone, but I strongly believe that if your heart is tugging on you like this you should at least explore the idea a bit more. My heart was screaming at me for months before we finally tried to figure out logistics. Once we saw that we could actually do it, it felt like we had to.
