But can we be dreamers and doers?
Will it be easy?
Will it be worth it?
Nothing worth it is ever easy.
We’ve officially been on the road for 1 year as of June 18, 2018. While we started living in our RV a few months before we started traveling the RV, we’re calling this date our anniversary. This is the date we chose to quit just thinking about doing what we wanted to do and we actually did it. We haven’t had a city to call home in over a year and that’s quite thrilling. We’ve had temporary homes, but no permanent homes. At this point, we barely even consider Jacksonville our “home base.” Sure, it’s still where we go to doctor appointments, receive our mail, and have a storage unit that keeps getting smaller and smaller, but we have no physical presence there anymore.
In the last year, we’ve:
- visited 25 different states
- upgraded to a new camper
- had a puppy join our family
- met hundreds of nice fellow RVers
- checked about a million things off our bucket list
The number one question we’re asked is: Where is your favorite place you’ve been? And, without any hesitation, all 3 of us will always answer South Dakota. We loved Custer State Park and Badlands National Park so much and those locations were some of our very first stops – only about 2 weeks into our adventure.
This is just a shout out to anyone out there even thinking about taking a risk and doing something crazy. Whether that’s making the decision to go full-time RVing or anything else life may be throwing your way, kudos to you for even thinking about making a move and doing something crazy. And for all of you thinking about starting the full-time RV journey, reach out to us if there’s anything we can do to help ease your nerves. We’re huge advocates of the lifestyle and would love to help give you that push to start the journey like we did. You definitely won’t regret it!

Happy 1st Anniversary! Question—I can see how you could make a living on the road but how does your parents handle it? Curious as hubby & I would like to take this plunge.
Thanks so much! We all have very different jobs! Mom is a doctor recruiter for a nationwide dermatology firm and dad maintains his old client base from his sales job. 🙂
