If there is any downside to being on the road for a full year, it’s being far from family and friends and other full-time families understand that difficulty, especially for our kids. We met the Boyinks way back in Arizona after connecting through our blogs. Our kids really hit it off (adults too) so when we found out we were going to be in Oregon at the same time we made quick arrangements to get into the same campgrounds for a spell. We’ve been together now since Crater Lake and we’ve had a great time: dinners together, conversation around the fire, games and travel tip sharing...it’s all good. All a blessing.
