wow, i'm so behind in posting here. i don't think i can keep up with our real-life blog and this more anonymous one, so i'm pondering what to do! i'd love to share our trip with you, as it'll be some SERIOUS attachment therapy, on wheels. i just won't be able (willing) to share any of our RADical issues on our "normal" blog. because, you know, in blogland, we like to pretend to be normal. :) maybe i'll just link to that one and only share RADical happenings on this one. just not sure if i want to open it up yet. (would love opinions!)
and besides all the reasoning below, just imagine the opportunity we'll have for bonding time if we live in an RV fulltime...
so here it is: we've decided to fulfill a dream and take to the road in an RV!
i'll answer your questions now...
yes, the whole family.
yes, the kids are excited.
yes, we're serious. and we can't wait! :)
we've had so many concerned calls and emails and it's apparent some people are forgetting we are us. why are we doing it? because we can!
no, we're not desperate (while we do have 2 houses to sell, we could sell this one and live in the other debt-free but who wants to live there? not us!)
no, we're not selling the company (are you nuts?! we'll have satellite, internet, phone, computers, printers, and a mobile office.)
no, we're not yanking the kids out of school (we already homeschool!)
no, we don't need all this stuff (dad's new favorite saying: the more stuff you own, the more stuff owns you.)
no, we're not crazy (um, okay you got me on that one, we are, but it works for us!)
it's the opportunity of a lifetime and we're so grateful to be able to do it! thanks to our company and technology, we're able to work remotely. instead of just teaching the kids about this country, they'll get to see it! we have family from florida to alaska, so hopefully we can visit them all. we'll definitely visit our staff and members along the way too (especially the other full-time RVers!)!
where will we go? who knows?! we'll follow the sun and stay warm mostly likely. we'll go where we want and stay until we're bored. we're giving up a house, but gaining an ever-changing backyard. we'll miss our friends, our church, and many conveniences, but we'll find adventures and make memories while keeping in touch! you can follow along if you're interested. i'm sure we'll do the same kinds of things, the backgrounds will just change.
more common questions:
what will our new home look like? we're not sure. we'll have to wait until we sell everything!
when will we leave? see above.
what are we selling? see above, really, everything! rental house, our house, van, truck, camper, possessions. local friends check out the house tour (email me). anything you see is for sale, furniture, storage, gadgets, decorations, tools, everything.
can you come too? sorry, we're limiting it to our 5, but we'd love to visit you! :)
so hopefully soon, we'll be driving one of these! we'll certainly miss our home and friends, but it will be so fun to unlocate and just go........
