Did anyone see the Today show today?  They profiled a family who hit the road in their RV when the dad lost his job. We don’t have TV so I didn’t see it but a friend sent a link to the story and video.  There’s a video clip of the happy family singing songs and sight-seeing across the country while the  kids do on-line homework in their brand new 42-foot 5th wheel.  Looks like fun.

The story says they are only one of many families who have taken up an itinerant lifestyle to cut costs in difficult economic times.  There’s a website for families who live on the road but unlike us they are ‘on the road’ not just staying put in a trailer.  Somehow that makes it so much more adventurous and FUN.  Well, that and having money in the bank to pay the expenses and a new 42 foot trailer!
