hi

00:00:07.270 –> 00:00:11.370
I’m Mark Koep from CampgroundViews.com thank
you for joining us for weekly video

00:00:11.370 –> 00:00:14.250
today we are going to take you on an
interesting journey where we meet

00:00:14.250 –> 00:00:17.779
full-time families on the road these are
young families with children

00:00:17.779 –> 00:00:20.870
who elected to live their RV travelling the
country

00:00:20.870 –> 00:00:25.550
great stories great adventures they give
us a little glimpse of what it takes

00:00:25.550 –> 00:00:29.470
to actually take your family on the road
first we start with the Royals

00:00:29.470 –> 00:00:32.770
to show us the inside of their RV

00:00:32.770 –> 00:00:35.850
We have 4 kids and 2 large dogs and

00:00:35.850 –> 00:00:37.560
yes and we are all living in there

00:00:37.560 –> 00:00:42.090
together so I will walk you through
and show you kind of how it works

00:00:42.090 –> 00:00:46.790
the Royals heavily customized this Newmar
to meet their needs

00:00:46.790 –> 00:00:51.900
with children’s areas and better placement
of TV’s

00:00:51.900 –> 00:00:56.140
appliances and even a custom pantry

00:00:56.140 –> 00:01:02.550
all made to make their life easier and more
efficient on the road. They even have a slogan

00:01:02.550 –> 00:01:07.979
painted on the upper wall

00:01:07.979 –> 00:01:12.810
Life is Simple Eat Sleep Play and Repeat. What else is there right?

00:01:12.810 –> 00:01:17.000
and regarding sleeping how exactly do they make it work by using the back bedroom and all of its space

00:01:17.000 –> 00:01:20.290
with custom bunks

00:01:20.290 –> 00:01:26.509
that move out of the way for the slides to come in.

00:01:26.509 –> 00:01:28.500
so for us to have them all in the same room at the

00:01:28.500 –> 00:01:33.200
ages their in works out great for us and at night when everyone is sleeping

00:01:33.200 –> 00:01:33.619
we do have this door here

00:01:33.619 –> 00:01:37.740
closes and now we can come in here and

00:01:37.740 –> 00:01:41.100
close this one and this door closes too. So we do get privacy.

00:01:41.100 –> 00:01:44.850
Wow thank you Bryanna for letting us see the inside the RV

00:01:44.850 –> 00:01:48.100
and how you make it work with

00:01:48.100 –> 00:01:52.320
4 people 2 dogs and a partridge in a pear tree

00:01:52.320 –> 00:01:58.310
wait I didn’t see a partridge but they are making it work none-the-less

00:01:58.310 –> 00:02:01.869
pretty cool. Next we are going to meet Bryan Thomas

00:02:01.869 –> 00:02:04.979
and his family a wife and two signs

00:02:04.979 –> 00:02:08.539
who hit the road traveling the country to check everything out

00:02:08.539 –> 00:02:12.120
they have done the East Coast already and head to the West Coast this next year

00:02:12.120 –> 00:02:16.900
we talked a lot about the whole decision to make this leap

00:02:16.900 –> 00:02:21.700
what we found interesting was how they went about making the decision to go for it.

00:02:21.700 –> 00:02:25.670
We sat down as a family we decided as a
family and I explained

00:02:25.670 –> 00:02:29.890
what the opportunity was there we could
travel the country and

00:02:29.890 –> 00:02:33.260
and visit every state spend a few years
together as a family

00:02:33.260 –> 00:02:35.270
but it would mean selling our home

00:02:35.270 –> 00:02:38.530
and leaving our friends and going into
the unknown

00:02:38.530 –> 00:02:43.210
and they wanted to do it we’re all in
and so we made the decision as a family

00:02:43.210 –> 00:02:47.120
and … it wasn’t always easy selling
your house and packing up and saying

00:02:47.120 –> 00:02:47.800
goodbye

00:02:47.800 –> 00:02:50.900
but together we’ve got through it and we
did it

00:02:50.900 –> 00:02:54.850
and now we’ve been on the road a while
nineteen states

00:02:54.850 –> 00:02:58.430
and its it’s really been a good thing

00:02:58.430 –> 00:03:02.060
All right now we get convinced to go and
jump in and do it sell everything

00:03:02.060 –> 00:03:05.260
hit the road then we asked a few of the
families

00:03:05.260 –> 00:03:09.850
this the the Holts, Jennifer Drew who are travelling with their two young

00:03:09.850 –> 00:03:13.260
kids to talk a little bit about the good bad

00:03:13.260 –> 00:03:18.980
First we asked them what is the worst experience they have had so far

00:03:18.980 –> 00:03:22.780
Yeah the worst experience we had was coming out of Denver

00:03:22.780 –> 00:03:24.270
You actually need to do your homework

00:03:24.270 –> 00:03:28.030
like reading about the trip and destinations

00:03:28.030 –> 00:03:32.800
and also the type of roads you are going to be on. We did not do enough research

00:03:32.800 –> 00:03:35.940
Well I did not do enough research about driving out of Denver

00:03:35.940 –> 00:03:39.310
A truck driver rolled by “Your brakes are on fire!” so I jumped out

00:03:39.310 –> 00:03:42.489
grabbed the fire extinguisher, new brakes on the truck and the trailer

00:03:42.489 –> 00:03:49.209
A couple thousand dollars… we learned the right way to drive out of the mountains

00:03:49.209 –> 00:03:49.580
Fire out the back of your RV that is not fun

00:03:49.580 –> 00:03:53.780
so what are the best experiences so far?

00:03:53.780 –> 00:03:57.510
First of all it is the weather we chase the good weather. So back in Michigan 3′ of snow and its 8 degrees

00:03:57.510 –> 00:04:00.780
so we love the weather but

00:04:00.780 –> 00:04:07.780
all the National Parks are so cool. We do the Junior Ranger Program with our kids and we learn a lot. It is fun

00:04:08.459 –> 00:04:11.400
That is the difference it is like a giant field trip that you want to go on

00:04:11.400 –> 00:04:15.220
Thank you Drew that is a great way to put it

00:04:15.220 –> 00:04:21.780
A giant field trip that you want to be on

00:04:21.780 –> 00:04:25.050
So if you want to be on this field trip

00:04:25.050 –> 00:04:26.160
too

00:04:26.160 –> 00:04:29.340
this lifestyle is so rediculous affordable

00:04:29.340 –> 00:04:36.340
the jokes on the rest of the world

00:04:36.370 –> 00:04:40.450
go for it jump in. Just do it. .. and if you
don’t just do you won’t do it

00:04:40.450 –> 00:04:47.450
such as do it forget everything out so
so just do it and forget everything else.

00:04:48.860 –> 00:04:51.930
So there’s challenges but its a great adventure

00:04:51.930 –> 00:04:58.550
enjoy the ride you get one life. Live it. There you have our episode today I hope you enjoyed the ride.

00:04:58.550 –> 00:05:01.560
