Time does not stand still for us. Things keep happening and life continues to move forward. As we travel through this amazing country we find so many new and interesting things to experience, but we still have to manage to fit in everyday things. Our refrigerator does not fill itself, the dishes don’t wash themselves, and no one comes to take out our trash while we explore a new city. There is still an endless amount of chores that need to be done on a daily basis and honestly it can be challenging to find time to fit things in when we are so busy discovering new places. It is also important to us that the kids pitch in to help with some of these tasks, but they are still learning and it takes time to teach them how to do these things right. Life is a balancing act whether stationary or on the road.
After having traveled through this country with my family for over a year I thought I would write about some of the highlights of our adventure.
However after thinking about what I would write I realized that it would be a very extensive article since we have been able to do so many awesome things this past year. I also realized that our website is filled with articles about the amazing places we have been and you could easily go to anyone of those to read about some cool places we have traveled to. Instead I decided I would highlight some of the difficulties we have encountered after a year of living full time on the road. Because we all know that it can’t always be like a vacation when it’s our life. So let me tell you about some of the challenges we have faced that were unexpected and some of the things we dislike about life on the road.
