In 2015, we took off on a 50 State Adventure. 1 Mom + 4 Kids. In a 31 Foot RV. Mom in the driver’s seat. My tween as co-pilot and expert navigator. My 3 others as entertainment crew. My husband flew to meet us around the country on weekends. We completed the contiguous 48 States that year in just under 6 months. In 2016, our family flew to Hawaii (our 49th State). In early 2017, we flew to Alaska to complete our epic 50 State Tour.
You can read about our adventure on our blog. But quite honestly, the posts are few and far between, as we spent more time adventuring and driving than writing or documenting the details of our adventure, other than through photographs.
Along the way, we raised awareness and money for Suicide Awareness and Prevention. We named our mission Miles of Light in honor of my children’s grandfather and my husband’s incredible father who took his life in 2014. He was a beautiful being who would have loved hearing our road stories.
Our story was featured on She Explores. You can read that here.

There is nothing quite like the RVlife / vanlife / full-time travel / nomadic lifestyle and experience. It is life altering. Every mile, every road forever shapes everything ahead.
We are so glad you found us. We hope you’ll wander with us. Follow us on Instagram and we’ll follow your family adventures back.
