We seriously want to do this. It's been our crazy dream for years now to give it all up and live in an RV full-time, traveling, care-free, exploring our world, "roadschooling" the kids. We go between wanting to live in an RV to wanting to live in a houseboat lol. Of course money is the biggest issue....how would we support ourselves? Does anyone have any crazy dreams that you feel are just beyond your reach?

Don't spend your life dreaming! If it's important to you, DO IT.
We already started donating our stuff, and we are paying off the last bit of our debt with our tax return! We won't be traveling constantly, that will come after we get a good amount of money saved to cushion us invade of finance trouble.
once we are "free", we will travel to festivals and renaissance fairs.

You are so right about the stress factor! Being home more just creates different stresses, being a mom is just plain difficult whether you're a full time working mom or a SAHM!

That stinks! In general he can sign any IBEW book and work from their local. We have a lot of people working here in ohio from states all over because it is such a union friendly state and there a lot of big construction jobs happening here. Actually my DH is currently working on the largest project in North America. Sad that he is 4.5 hours away to do it =(
Huh, when DH graduated from his HVAC school I thought of doing the same...but apparently he can't work in the field outside his own state.hed have to go through the full 18 month certification course for every new state he wanted to work in. Major bummer!
We have talked about doing this for a year. My DH is a Union Electrician so he would sign books as we entered towns and work from there for short calls (1-3 weeks) and then we would move on. I would like to but we own our home and have 3 large dogs. If only we could find someone to rent the house I would be willing to travel with the dogs. LOL
