Hi! Welcome to our blog. My name is Pamela and I do most of the writing on these pages, but I am certainly not alone. My best friend and hubby of 33 years is Greg. We live full time on our fifth wheel RV with our 16 year old son, Elijah. Our family is completed by our four-legged child, Popeye. He is our overly loved, overly spoiled, and absolutely perfect (in our eyes), miniature golden doodle. And let us not leave out the fact that we also have three terrific grown children, as well as three absolutely perfect granddaughters and one absolutely perfect grandson, all of whom have captured our hearts.
Greg, Elijah, Popeye and I are the ones who you will be reading the most about in these pages. Together we live, work, and homeschool in our beautiful 410 square foot home on wheels. We doing a lot of playing as well, and that’s done in the ever changing and amazing landscape that makes up our great country, America. We love the fact that we have a different “front” yard with a brand new view every few weeks. Our rig aka “home” is a 2016 Reflection 367BHS by Grand Design and it is an absolutely perfect fit for us. It’s 41 feet long and has a mid-bunk floorplan, which means instead of having the back of our 5th wheel taken up by the bunkhouse, the bunkhouse is in the middle. That allows us to have a full living room area in the back with a large back window, a full sized sofa, as well as two reclining “theater” seats. The mid-bunk room is our son, Elijah’s, room and it is located in the middle of our 5th wheel with a door that opens up to the hallway. There is a queen sized loft above the mid-bunk room, which has unexpectedly served us perfectly as a room for our oldest granddaughter who ended up living with us for ½ of our first year of full-timing. It serves as easy access storage as well as a temporary catch-all space when it’s not being used by a grown kid (yes, our 22 year old loves it up there!) or grandkid for sleeping quarters. After much research on all the difference options,floorplans, and brands of 5th wheels; this was (and still is even more so after full timing in it for two years and counting) by far the best floor plan and quality rig in general (we LOVE Grand Design!) to fit our needs. We moved aboard Exodus (the name of our 5er) and left our sticks and bricks house for good in February of 2016 and we have been happily roaming about the country ever since. Join us on our journey as we explore God’s creation one state at a time.
