The Adams Family

They’re crazy and they’re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re all together ooky,
The Adams Family.

Their house is a RV
With a blog people can see
They are livin’ the dream
The Adams Family.

We came up with this crazy idea to sell our house, everything in it, buy an RV, and tour our great country! We plan to visit all 50 states over a two year period while Chris works and I home school our two daughters 9 and almost 11.

One day in the beginning of May 2017, while sitting at our kitchen table eating lunch together, Chris and I concocted this grand adventure. Chris half heartedly suggested we move out to the middle of nowhere, like Wyoming. I thought, well that’s a little drastic and would be a huge change! We’ve never even been to Wyoming, but I’m sure it’s a lot different than north Georgia. I sat and thought about what it would look like to have our world turned upside down and came back with “Why don’t we just move into an RV and travel the country!” And so the seed was planted that day.

We currently live in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA. We live in a golf, swim & tennis community. We have a 5,200 sq ft house with a “white picket fence”- only kidding- it’s brown 🙂  I volunteer all my time at our public elementary school on the PTA and Foundation board. Chris works full time for an amazing company.  The girls are very involved with school and team sports. This idea is completely different from anything we have ever done. We’ve never even been inside an RV before!

We are the Adams Family. We are kooky!

Meet Tina

Tina loves to hike, travel and camp with her family. So much so that she and her husband decided to sell their house and everything in it to travel full-time in an RV, with their two daughters. They are making their way across the United States, visiting as many American landmarks as they can in two years. Their focus is to make family a priority and to educate their daughters on the Earth’s geology, the countries history and diversity.

She loves to take pictures and is the main contributor of this blog.

    We did something similar. I joke around that in 2007 I had a mid life crisis and took my family with me. We sold our house, put everything in storage, and bought a 40ft 5er and full timed while I was in grad school. We spent as much time as we could on the road, hiking parks, and spending time together.

    When I got out of the Army we sold the 5th wheel and bought a 2014 American Revolution 42T (sound familiar) and now work part time out of it while I work remotely (3-4 months a year). We have been too many of the same places, and probably hiked a lot of the same trails. Look forward to reading your blog and seeing what cool places we missed!

        We had a blog at one time, but FB kind of took over for me. It was just easier to update that, the family, post pictures, and such.

        Hard to pin down our favorite place, but if forced to choose–we would probably pick Yellowstone. While it doesn’t get “top marks” for any single catagory (that we evaluate a place for), it is consistently number two or three.

        We love the enormity of it, the animals, the hikes, and climbing some of the domes.

        We are in Fayetteville NC, not much here except for Fort Bragg and the Airborne and Special Operations Museum–but if for some reason that interests you guys–my family would be glad to show your family the area!

        Our daughters were 3 and 5 at the time. Today they are 15 and 17 and we look forward to every trip. We just got back from spending a month at Fort Walton Beach, FL in June, at trip to Asheville, NC, and a Thanksgiving vacation (Blue Water Key) at Key West, FL.

        Our “blog” is a “Captain’s Log” like in Star Trek. We put the text on FB then consolidate the content into a photo book that is printed out and published (like blurb.com). Great way to capture the memories.

        We use “blurb” to consolidate our journals and pictures into real books. While individually they might be a bit pricey, getting 3, 4, or 5 printed up is pretty cool. They make great keepsakes (and I am pretty sure the kids will love them decades later).

        We stayed at Blue Water Key RV resort. I am not going to lie, very pricey but VERY cool.
