The title of this post should not surprise anyone who has been following us or know us very well, but I will explain what I mean in more detail.
We are a full-time RV family who has chosen to live in a fifth wheel RV that we tow from place to place across the United States. We jump from one hospital assignment to the next with the occasional break for personal travel in between. We have visited the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and the Florida Keys during our travels over the last two and a half years of RV life. These make us weird when compared to Suburban-living “normal” people.
Heather has given birth to our third child, Miss Kicky Feet, INSIDE the RV, and we are debt free. These make us even weirder! However, we still seem to fit the mold of an RV family. We still go on vacation with our wares in tow, opting for air conditioning and running water at the flip of a switch. We visit national parks and navigate large cities with our noses buried in a free map.
However, even with these common traits and accomplishments with others in the many RV parks around the country in which we have stayed, we still seem to set ourselves apart from those around us. As I look around the RV park I seem to be one of the few with a fully stocked tool chest in the RV. I am among an even smaller group that keep a chainsaw, circular saw, and compound sliding miter saw with us for RV remodeling projects. I have yet to see a retiree haul a sliding miter saw out from his class A motor coach to work on a project. We also purchased a utility trailer and installed a laundry set so we would have the ability to wash and dry clothes at our site as well as haul the motorcycle from place to place.
For these and many other reasons, I can firmly state that we are weird…and I like it!!
