This story started several years ago with an idea of taking our camping experience to the next level...full time RV'ing. Rick and I have always liked camping and everything about it. The planning and preparation, the journey to the campsite, set up and ultimately camping itself. We both did some form of camping/up north WI relaxing when we were younger. Then we started tent camping together in Georgia with the boys when they were very young. We loved the state parks and the COE campgrounds around Lake Lanier.
Once we moved back to WI in 2008, we bought Rick's sisters expandable camper and began camping all over WI. The entire family really liked the experience so we decided to explore National parks and set our sites on Yellowstone with side trips to Custer State park, Badlands and the Grand Tetons. One small detail though, in order to camp in Yellowstone, campers needed to be hard sided. So the decision was made to upgrade to a 2011 Keystone Outback.
We made many happy memories camping in our Outback through the years around WI, the MI UP and IN. Each time sad for it to come to an end, but already planning the next journey.
Fast forward to 2013 when discussions started to take shape around full timing. Soo many unanswered questions...can we afford it, will we like it, do we sell the house, what about the boys, how do we get mail, what do we do for health insurance, will we get the Packer games on TV (you know, the important stuff!)? Over the next couple years we would spend alot of time researching, following full timer blogs and learning everything we could about the full time life. The more we learned, the more we liked.
This brings us to late 2016 when everything really started to take shape.
Stay tuned to find out about finding the answers to MOST of our questions about the full time lifestyle.
