Meet the Works family – Originally from Kansas, Peter and Jessa got tired of the routine lifestyle so they sold their home, their stuff and hit the road in an Airstream with their young son Jack.
Full-time travel and the idea of selling everything and road tripping the rest of your days isn’t for everyone. And it might not have to be. Peter and Jessa took the ultimate plunge. One that we all want to take but might be a bit apprehensive of. Even though it might not be in the cards for all of us we can all take a lesson or two from what they do.
TRAVEL IS HARD
Contrary to popular belief (or maybe your previous experience) traveling with a family is actually pretty easy and you don’t have to be a retiree to do it. Getting out on the road opens the doors to a whole new uncharted world and with a bit of planning, it can go without a hitch (unless you’re taking a trailer).
It’s never too early (or late!) to decide you want to be living differently, or better, or more responsibly. It’s true that most RVers tend to be retirees, but we are also discovering dozens of similarly-minded, young families who are choosing to live in movable houses, rather than traditional bricks & sticks ones. – 1337stream.com
HOW CAN I DO THAT?
Start small. It might not be the wisest idea to put your house on the market right now and hammer a garage sale sign into the yard. But, take a baby step in the direction of freedom. Look at your short and long-term goals and head in the direction you’re dreaming about. Plan more family vacations, go to the park more, invite friends on outdoor adventures and just make a point to chase after the freedom dream. Here are a few easy things to get you started.
- Make a list of activities or things to do when you have those “I don’t know what to do today” moments.
- Outline 1 major trip a year. This can just be a week camping somewhere on a budget.
- Plan learning adventure days. Think of a topic like different leaf shapes and then head to the park.
- Write down all the parks near you and draw one from a hat.
Now be inspired. Head outside and get creative. It’s okay for you to be a kid too.
