Yesterday we went back to Giant RV and finalized the paper works. We also did a complete walk-through. They taught us the basic on how things work inside and out. They  gave us useful tips. We recorded it on video so we have verbal instructions on hand at all times.

Luckily, Owen came equipped with a bag of snacks and water. We were there for 3 hours. We asked detailed questions and asked them to show us how to do specific things like how-to work the plumbing line for emptying. It was a lot of information. Intimidating at first.

Since we don’t have a truck yet, we’ve arranged to have it stored on their lot. In the mean time, they are also helping us find a truck with a wholesaler who can give us a good price. Richard prefers a truck with a short bed considering our trailer is 35 ft long.

We’re meeting Bill C., the realtor on Wednesday and if the numbers look good, the house will be on the market. In the mean time, we’re taking advantage of the community yard sale we’re having this Saturday. We’ll be getting rid of some stuff that we don’t need (like boxes of children’s toys and books).

We are Pam, Richard and Owen. It was three years ago when we embarked on this journey. We sold our house, cars and belongings. We said good bye to our jobs, friends and family. We purchased a travel trailer and had an adventure of a lifetime. We took homeschoolng to another level. Education on the go, our family was in tow and we explored the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and a little bit of Europe. We hope to inspire others looking for a dramatic change. Remember, not all who wander are lost. As of 2017, our trailer is tucked away and we are settled in Northern California.
