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?

LOL Pick some where else because Costa Rica is VERY into socialism. It's has nationalized it's business, healthcare, Social Security (type program) and of course, it's a educational system. Oh, and it has LOTS of unions. I don't think anything has changed recently, but I could be wrong. 8)
I want to go to Costa Rica for a year (or more). I am sick to death of this socialist nation we call the United States.
by hipmomto3January 28 at 7:27 PMWe've driven/camped across the US (coast to coast - DC to San Diego) twice. That took about 2 weeks each time. Enough adventure for me! ;)
DH does work remotely so as long as we had internet & phone he could *technically* do it... but why would we want to?! :)

We would love to live in an RV and travel around the country seeing all the things that make the United States so beautiful. I don't think that I would worry too much about DS and socialization. He's very friendly and social so he would make friends where ever we went. I think it would be great for him to meet other people from around the US. However that would be leaving DCG behind with her Mom, and I think we would miss her too much. And neither of us have jobs that would travel well. (Okay my job would since I'm a SAHM, daycare provider and "learning coach"/ teacher, so other than daycare my job goes with me.)
So my dream would be for DH to get some kind of job that he could telecomute for. Somehow, without anything bad happening to anyone, having custody of DCG so she could go with us, a safe storage place for our things that we couldn't take with us, because we might discover that a life traveling around isn't for us. A nice big RV with all the things we would need for living and schooling. And a travel plan with all the sights we want to see. Not likely to happen. DH is a cook so no telecomuting for that. And DCG's Mom would have to die before she would turn over custody of her daughter to anyone, I don't blame her because I would have to die before I would.

They were headed to the Bahamas but had to stay put because of fog which is how I got to visit with them. That sounded like so much fun.

I want to move to Ireland or Scotland, but it is not an easy or cheap task. =(

I have the same dream as you! I would LOVE to have an RV, stay on the road all year, and 'roadschool' the kids. There are complicating factors (including finances) that prevent it from happening. But, ah, a girl can dream....
My brother in law and his wife are backpacking the world. She is a published writer. Her blog is called "So many places". Most of her first entries are detailing how they got to the point where they could travel. The blog has made the a
List of must read travel blogs for two years in a row.
