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?

 I've always wanted to take the kids backpacking around Europe and go on the most awesome field trips every and learn things like mastering a n instrument in the countries they were created in by people who have mastered them lol.  *sigh* I know it will never happen tho lol. There's that whole pesky money thing again...and actually getting to Europe would be helpful lol

Seriously that is my hubby's dream! LoL And it may actually happen someday. He is a worship leader and preacher and wants to travel and do that full time. When we first were married we traveled around Florida for 6 months in a Mini Winni and played and preached at a different church every weekend. It was so much fun and we actually had more money then because we didn't have bills other than gas, food, and phones. However now with two kids I'd be willing to do it, so long as we had a home to come back to as well, which would involve more bills. Lord willing it may happen! : )

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.

I would like to do that.. it would be cool...

I imagine some of it would be harder and more work... whereas, on the whole it would be a simpler but more exciting life.

We have talked many, many times of going off the grid and building our own cabin, growing our own food, having some animals, and using solar panels and a well to meet all of our needs.  In our imaginary world we wouldn't even need to come to town for supplies.....but then I remember toilet paper :)

As nice as that seems, your kids would need a social life. Friends, family functions, etc.
