Working on the Road

Adventure and travel have always been a big part of my life.

When I was 14 years old, I traveled to the end of the Gunflint Trail in northern Minnesota, got in a boat and was transported 3 miles to a remote camp on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. The BWCA is a National Park separating Canada and the US. 

Despite my misgivings, I found I loved working in the kitchen at an all boys camp and spent four summers there among giant spiders, mice so plentiful that all food was stored in metal garbage cans, and black bears that fought a daily battle with the 6” thick, bear proof doors on the kitchen. I was frequently heard banging garbage can lids together and squealing as only a teenage girl can, “Go away bears, go away!”

My husband worked at the camp as well, but in the years after I’d left for college. The directors of the camp knew we’d be perfect together and set us up. Three years later we were married.

So was really no surprise to anyone that once we married, our life was a continuation of adventure. 

Why We Hit the Road

What was a surprise was when we announced, one year ago, that we were planning to hit the road full time in an RV we didn’t yet have. What we DID have was a 3500 sq foot house full of stuff that we had unsuccessfully tried to sell several times. This week’s video is all about why we made the decision to sell everything and hit the road…

Next week I’ll talk more about how we went about the process of selling everything, what we did with the house, and what I would do differently if I did it all over again!

Are you intrigued by the idea of giving up yard work, daily errands and home maintenance but don’t know how you’d set up an online business? My course, Launch Tech Blueprint, teaches you everything you need to know to get a business set up online and is designed for the non-techie. Class will be starting in a few weeks. You can be added to the waitlist to find out more here. 

Tell me in the comments below, would you ever consider working full time on the road? Why or why not?
