Call Me Crazy...But...

Once my husband and I finally started to tell people we are planning on selling off all our belongings including our home and moving into an RV full time with our 3 children, most people look at us like we are nuts, but in reality I think we are the most sane people around.

Here are a few of the reasons we chose to become full time RVers...

1. There is nothing quite like experiencing adventure first hand. Seeing all the amazing things the Lord has made if a dream come true, and being able to show our children this beautiful world is a blessing beyond measure. And I don't know about you but I absolutely love camping so to be able to camp 24/7 is a dream come true.

2. Less is more - As I grow older I find myself not wanting to be part of the material world anymore. I don't need a big lavish house or the newest car, shoot I don't even need that 40 inch TV sitting on the mantel, all I need are my three little minions and my loving husband.

3. Talk about close relationships. When your home is a 35 foot travel trailer you can't help but spend quality time together. With things like a mortgage and utilities not really an issue you don't have to work a full time job and spend more time outside the home than inside. I never understood why we work 40 hours a week to pay for a home that we hardly spend time in.

4. Homeschool experience like no other - Instead of sitting in a classroom or the dinning room in our case and learning from books I can take my children to all the places where history occurred (at least here in the US of A) We can experience the Civil War at Gettysburg and walk the path of some of the most famous people in our history.

5. Freedom - freedom from debt and bills, freedom from the "normal society" With out all the things of traditional living looming over your head you have the freedom to work really as much or as little as you want, you can pick up and move at the drop of a hat and have your belongings right there with you.

6. People - While we have not been on the road just yet I can only imagine all the wonderful people we will have the chance to meet. All the different cultures and lifestyles, it is sure to be an exciting experience.

While I know that this idea may seem odd because as we were in school we were always taught every American strives to have the "American Dream." You know the thing where you have the house with the fence and dog and topped off with two perfect kiddos....Well, after getting older and coming to the realization I don't want the American Dream, What I want is MY dream.
