our road trip story

In 2011 our family decided to rent an RV and take a cross-country trip. None of us had ever RV’d before, so our six-week, twenty-eight state American odyssey was perhaps a bit ambitious & maybe even quixotic. All of us thoroughly enjoyed that adventure, and that’s when we initially established roadtripwith.us.

In 2015 we struck-out again, this time in our very own RV (a 30-foot Thor ACE which we lovingly call The FaceDragon).  This time we were on the road for nine weeks, and set a goal of hitting all new locations from what we saw in our first trip, and we documented everything here.  Again, we had a blast.

In late 2018 after much saving, planning, and more than a couple pensive, “are we really doing this?,” moments, we made the choice to go on the road full-time for a year.    Different from our journeys of 2011 and 2015, this is life now, including homeschooling our two kids along the way.

When not intrusive, we’ll use this corner of the internet to share & document our experiences living on the road.
