How did we get here?

 It definitely wasn’t overnight. We’ve been dreaming of being a world schooling family for years, but the logistics of making that work for our family eluded us. We continued dreaming while working on growing our online businesses and waiting to find the right opportunity, or for the right opportunity to find us. Well, it happened. On June 25th, 2017 Dorky Adventure Dad got canned. We were looking into upgrading our living situation and had JUST received a pre-approval letter for a 160,000 dollar home loan. Needless to say we really felt like the rug got pulled out from under our feet.

When we were trying to make sense of everything, a little seed of a thought got planted in D.A.D.’s head. What if this was the opportunity we were waiting for? I said he was off his rocker, but he figured if we could buy an RV outright and for less than 5,000, we could travel around America. And the very next day he found the listing for our Happy Adventure Home.

In the coming weeks we were very busy as we revamped a 1990 Winnebago Chieftain. From painting to reupholstering we made it into our home. We will be living full time in our Happy Adventure Home while we travel the country exploring new adventures in every state.

North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores

While we were soaking up the North Carolina beach scene we felt called to go check out the local aquarium. The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is pretty popular, but we just didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into. We’d been to the aquarium in Tampa, and honestly, it wasn’t nothing to write home about. Now we know why this aquarium is such a popular place to

Our 1990 Winnebago Chieftain Makeover

The Remodel: When our 1990 Winnebago Chieftain arrived I knew we had some work to do. I only gave us a month to do everything so we had to work quick. The first thing we did was fix the ceiling. Once that was done, the old heap didn’t look half bad, but we still had a lot of work to do. The next thing was gutting what we didn’t want

Adventure in RV shopping

After deciding to go full time RV living I only gave us a month to prepare. The longer we stayed in our stationary home the more we would pull out of our savings.  Which also meant the less likely we were able to make a dream our reality. I started perusing Facebook marketplace, and Craigslist for RV’s in our price range. I immediately found 2 class A RV’s under $5,000.

Planning our Full Time RV Adventure

The Planning: We still had our big check from the IRS in the bank as a cushion. It totaled around $7,000. I had to figure out how we could buy an RV, do any maintenance and remodeling, and live off the smallest amount of money possible. Being a numbers guy and a computer guy, I used spreadsheets to write out our bills and total them. During this time I realized
