Good evening, my friends! I sit here at our picnic table on a camp site in Panama City Beach where we've decided to spend a few days with our tent and our kids adventuring. They're all asleep and I'm here working and writing by lantern light, listening to the reeds rustle off the lagoon and double checking around the table to make sure no small animal is about to attack me. 

Since Ashley's Pro/Con list a couple of weeks ago we've been talking quite a bit at our house about what traveling full time could look like. Here's a few more thoughts now that we've had more time to digest things. Also, I'm definitely the more pragmatic one between the two of us (i.e. I think hard about process and details).

Pros & Cons For Full-Time RV Travel

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / September 09, 2014

If you know us, I bet you can guess who's idea it was to make a Pro/Con list. ;)  A couple weeks ago we sat down and just jotted down the first few things that came to mind about the benefits of traveling full-time and the no so awesome parts of traveling full time. These are my thoughts on the list and Jon will be jumping in with his own take  in a later post.

PRO - NO HOUSE PAYMENT - We plan to rent our house for the first year of traveling just to make sure this is what we want to do.  Our house payment is pretty low and so we would be able to profit between $400 - $600 which in turn could be used for our stays at the RV Parks and traveling expenses. There are also many other pros that could be put into this category such as NO HOA FEE, NO YARD WORK, NO LAWN TREATMENT PAYMENT, NO SECURITY SYSTEM PAYMENT, NO RURAL METRO PAYMENT, NO EXTERMINATOR PAYMENT.....That's a huge chunk of money right there.

Arrows in our Quiver

Wooden arrows above couch

It's true. We love arrows. We love the verse about our kids being arrows in our quiver. (Psalms 127:5) We also love design. We love to make our own art for our home. We had this bare wall that was screaming for something big. So I got to work.

Tinker Tin Trailer Co

In the spirit of our recent thoughts about what it would be like to travel full time, we'd like to introduce a fun company we ran across: Tinker Tin Trailer Co. These guys have some seriously cool retro trailers that you can rent out for special occasions or a weekend adventure. Either way, their brand just feels like a warm, fuzzy polaroid picture that you'll look back on and have grand memories.
