Well, we are gonna do it. We are finally moving into the 5th wheel and our yard will change weekly... This summer we will be staying local (within 50 mi. of dh's job) but in the fall, we hope to be on the road FULL TIME!
I'm so excited to start this new journey.
Sagan seems really excited about it too!!! As if unschooling wasn't fab enough already.... now we get to do it on the road! WOOT!

I would love to do that. I keep trying to talk my dh into it. My fantasy is to travel and let the kids grow up like the kids in the Wild Thornberrys.

I think its a wonderful opportunity.

I would love to hear of your adventures. Your Sagan is the same age as my Dusty. I think he would love to hear about your travels also, what you see, where you end up, etc.

I read your blog on MySpace. Cool! I'm going to have to try the BLM thing and see if there is anything in my area. I'm sure there is, I mean its Colorado and all. I've been promising Dusty we'd go camping and so some fishing. Dh is not at all thrilled so I think its just going to be me, the kiddos and the pups.

Wow, Julie. That is so wonderful! We are getting closer to doing this every day. DH and I have been pondering this for years, and this past year we came sooo close. Yesterday, he emailed me that his intuition is telling him it is time. I think he's right.

I hope you blog so I can add you to our bookmarks alongside Enchanted Gypsy and Delight. Good to hear you are living your dream!!

(My mom gave me a magnet once: "Live the life you have imagined." It is now the focal point of our "life dream" collage in our kitchen.)
