We are currently doing exactly what you are thinking about! Check my signature for our blog page. We are really enjoying it and have a 1 year trip planned. We are currently 3 months into it and we have seen a lot of great things together. The other day we walking through the woods and my 5 year old son pointed out a specific mushroom that we had learned about two weeks earlier in Quebec! It is not all fun and games though. The beginning was a little bumpy because we were treating our trip like a vacation and burning the candle at both ends. We have since learned to slow down and relax. We ask the kids periodically if they still want to be on the trip or go back home and they are adamant about staying the course. We are home schooling the kids with the helpl from their school. They gave us a website to sign up for classes and materials and they have to pass the final exam at the end of the school year. I say go for it BUT do a lot of research before just jumping in as even the biggest fifth wheel can seem small if everyone is at each others throats. Families on the road is a good place to start! Your more than welcome to follow along via our blog or send me a private message on this forum and I will shoot you my phone # and I can try and answer any questions you have.
We've been full-timing since 2004. We now have a 3 year old daughter that was born into the full-timing lifestyle. She calls the RV "home" and lives an enviable life with her family. We'll probably home school her until we settle down but in the meantime...
I spent most of my childhood waiting for my parents to come home from work. Our daughter sees us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We eat every meal together and we don't have to stay awake at night wondering if we're spending too much time away from our kids. Full-timing in general and full-timing with kids in particular is not for everybody but for the right family, it's as good as it gets.
Just finished 3 days camping with my wife and 3 kids ages 4, 6 and 8 you couldnt pay me to do it full time!!! Ive got my own opionion on home schooling kids and when I retire its just the wife and I !!! How do you guys afford it, making money, raising kids and travelling must be easier to make money in the U.S.A than up here. To each their own good luck!!!
