Roadschooling Resources

Roadschooling has gained popularity over the years, and especially in the past few months as the pandemic brought kids home from school. Since we've roadschooled our kids for ten years , and we're surrounded by a mobile community of fulltime RVing families, it's just normal life to us. What is roadschooling? Just like homeschooling, there is a wide range of roadschooling strategies and systems (from school at home to unschooling). As more families consider this roadschool idea, here are just some of the great roadschooling resources available.  Camping Clubs  FulltimeFamilies.com  is a camping club, providing families with roadschooling resources since 2010, including guides, rallies, podcasts, blogs, Facebook groups, a  Roadschooling Branch , and more. The Fulltime Families Explorers is a mobile scouting program for roadschooling kids.  Books about Roadschooling  Unlocating: How Undoing Everything You Think Will Bring True Freedom   This is our book, so yes it's my f

Why join Fulltime Families?

In our 10 years on the road, we're often asked about being lonely. It makes us laugh, because we've had to be very intentional to find alone time for our family, thanks to our nomadic community! Because of  Fulltime Families , we can always find other families nearby. We are lifetime members and this club brought us lifetime friends .  When you start RVing as a family, you don't know what to expect. Solo adventures for sure, but what about friends on the road?  We quickly learned there were friends in every campground. And some we followed from campground to campground and state to state!  Sometimes we wanted to climb mountains alone with our family.  Sometimes we wanted to climb with a whole crew!  Sometimes we wanted to explore alone and dip our toes in the sand.  Sometimes we wanted a rousing game of beach volleyball, getting covered in sand!  Sometimes our teenagers appreciated quiet moments to themselves.  Sometimes (oftentimes!) they loved being surrounded by their no

Our 10th Nomadiversary!

It's our TENTH NOMADIVERSARY!!! Ten amazing years on the road with these crazy kids, who are no longer kids! 49 states and countless hikes, climbs, canyons, whitewater, and so many other adventures. And not a single regret for hitting the road for a nomadic life of family and fun! For our 10th nomadiversary, Allen and I went on a photo scavenger hunt for 10s. ⁣We’ve done all the exciting bucket list items and most of the country is still closed, so we made an adventure of our own.⁣ ⁣It doesn’t feel like 10 years and it doesn’t feel like a big celebration. It just feels like our normal life - because it is! Our normal, typical, beautiful life on the road. This Nomadiversary we celebrated in Fair Play, SC. Check out our 9th in TX (where we launched our book!),  8th in HI ,  7th in SC ,  6th in AZ ,  5th in AR ,   4th in AR ,  3rd in PA ,   2nd in FL ,  and  1st in VA !

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 b
