Hello readers! This post is to announce that we’re about to embark on an adventure that has been nearly 10 years in the making. Today, I am sharing with you what led to our full-time RV decision.
It started with our married friends who simply loved Jesus. They had converted a school bus into a rig. This is what they housed and traveled in with their 3 young boys.
Our friends traveled from Maine to Texas every year & spread the gospel. They had a simple life.
It shocked us! Mark and I had been married for less than a year at this point. Their life and love for others left us scratching our heads. It was radical! And it was awesome!!
We thought they were crazy and one of the most amazing families we’d ever met.
This led us to talking about the possibilities for us to RV full-time as well. The idea of doing something that crazy seemed like an impossibility. We convinced ourselves that it could never work for us.
I was probably the greatest hindrance to taking the plunge. You see, I wanted to start a family, buy some acreage, and have chickens, goats, garden, can, etc… My “Little House on the Prairie” style of life that I had dreamed of for years stopped me.
Mark on the other hand wanted to full-time RV all.the.way. He has always been more of a minimalist. If I had a dollar for every time he said we had too much “junk” in the house, we’d have even more junk. Ha!
Full-Time RV Research Mode
We revisited living in an RV and traveling at least half a dozen times over the past 7 or so years.
Every time we revisited this idea, we would go to RV dealers, browse message boards, talk at length about all the ins and outs of this, look at our budget, plan, pray, etc. Hopefully, I’ve painted the picture for you but needless to say, we exhausted every angle of this life as far as we know.
Still, we never took the plunge, until now.
And it feels crazy!
