Our Story

Our family of five has been traveling the country since 2010 and we still love the total freedom of our fulltime RVing life! We’ve seen 49 states, visited over 70 national parks, and experienced countless adventures on the road. And we’re passionate about helping others find that freedom too.
Many ask us how we make money on the road and are looking for mobile income options. I share a link to some ideas here and much more about this in our book, Unlocating. We've done a variety of things, but nothing compares to our current job. Here's how we found it.

While life is great now, in 2014-2015 we really slowed down. We had never had a home base before, but for those two years we sat still for the majority of the year. We bought some land and it was beautiful, but we didn’t do very much because we simply didn’t feel like it. We thought we’d lost our sense of adventure. We’d done so much and figured maybe we had just seen it all and we were finished. We settled into being boring an…

Author Spotlight on Fulltime Families!

Fulltime Families did an author spotlight on a fabulous author! But I couldn't find that one, so I'll share the one they did on me. ๐Ÿ˜

Air Fryer "Breaded" Chicken

I've been using my new Mealthy CrispLid and loving it! I've wanted an air fryer, for healthier cooking, but hated to have yet another appliance in our small kitchen. So I'm glad I took a chance on this lid, because it's perfect for us! This time I tried my trusty (and yes, healthy) baked "breaded" chickenin the air fryer/Instant Pot and it was great! And I didn't have to fry it and then bake it!
I just coated and hit start! I was able to do three at a time in the basket. One and a half each was perfect for Allen and me (6oz for a lean & green dinner), but I made more to have the next day too. Matt wasn't home because he pretty much lives with his friends the Albrittons now. :) He's loving his friend time in Florida!

No office, no problem

Even though we live and work in a small space, we can still have a professional looking office in an RV! We often do video chats and we want to put our best foot (face) forward. These backdrops simply hang from the ceiling in Allen's office, aka our living room, aka our kitchen, aka the path to the kids' rooms, aka the *everything* in a fifth wheel. Now we can work, and focus on helping others, without all the distractions.
They also hang from the ceiling in my office, aka our bedroom. We used tri-fold cardboard for displays. Then we covered them with peel and stick wallpaper for the plain wall and a giant wall poster for the window view. We can also cover them with a sheet for a green screen.
No background distractions, besides our goofy faces.
We can't always have an office this gorgeous - but we're very grateful when we do!!
Even if it's moving day, and we're parked at a rest area, we can still work from a professional office. Do you have a great office setu…

Lizzy, Matt, Ho Hey video!

Lizzy finally recorded a whole song for us! All it took was a little prodding (and a lot of cash!) :) And Matt played the ukulele. Lizzy plays the keyboard too, but we were lucky to get anything on video, since she really hates the spotlight. :)
They're both pretty incredible and self-taught. Josh is also amazing on guitar! Not bad for three nomadic kids who've grown up on the road. I guess music lessons aren't always a necessity after all. These unschooled kids are determined to learn things they care about, and they do it impressively! There's a great chapter about unschooling in Unlocating too!

This is Ho Hey by The Lumineers. Lizzy and Matt Lundy recorded at a campground lodge in Las Vegas. :)  You can watch on the blog or also on YouTube.
