Don't you think it would stink? Let's face it....people smell. That's a lot of people in a little space.

I like the idea of all the travel though. I might could stick it out for a few months, lol.

Hmmm don't think my lot would last long together in such a small space. We'd be leaving them on the side of the road all over the place

in theory it wounds wonderful! but reality would probably not live up to that expectation. i think the kids are really lucky to have the travel opportunity -- i'd love to drive all over this country.

That, right there, is our dream. If we ever won the lottery (fat chance; we don't play it) we'd buy a kick *** RV and pack up and head on out.

Can we come Sarah? We don't buy lottery tickets either though!

Honestly, the thought of leaving all the "clutter" of home behind and just having us and the kids to travel, enjoy, no picking up toys would be very freeing I think. I would do it in a second! But DH and I are homebodies, but that sounds like something just so unique.

Since my hubby is in the trades, he's had opportunites to travel around the US and work, and we have considered going with him. But now with his business here....we'll be staying close.

Good for them!

I should add that this would never work for us, the rest of my family (dh as much as the kids) would refuse to go because they wouldn't leave their horses.

It's my/our dream as well. I originally envisioned just dh and me, but he would LOVE to take the dc. Not as a school project more as a what do u want to see...let's go see it. I love that idea too. My problem with the idea IS I am terrified at the thought of driving a big RV like that. The rest....we'd figure out as we went along.
