    I think you're being rather modest when you say you are not "experts" at RVing . . . 🙂 Thumbs up for you and Trish as always, and really enjoying your channel, Joe 👍 🇺🇸

    Question: With the market being flooded of RV's. One dealer put an update that most of their units were sold, unit on order from factory. Can you still find places to stay and are you making reservations now or are you still (no Reservation) policy. hope to find a rig to start our new life in as we adjust to Full time RV, Thanks John

    I would LOVE an episode with a more detailed look at what your homeschooling looks like, including frequency, lesson plans, program used, etc.

    I'm a little late on this but I have been crazy busy lol. My husband and I are talking over going full time in our RV as we are so much happier when in the RV we have so many questions so hopefully this video will answer some of those questions. I love you guys you are always so entertaining and funny keep up the good work !!

    Ok, so you guys are living kind of right along with some of the plans I had before even thinking of full-time RV lifestyle. My wife and I have been planning on investing in real estate but in Myrtle Beach. I would be very interested in your experiences with having a property you are renting out as a vacation rental.

    We are not full time rv (yet) but we take our rv to visit family just because of having our own space because of different Routines (wake up, coffee, naps, bed time,etc). It makes the family visits better 😉

    Hiiii!! Just did my first RV Trip with my immediate family and I had a blast, I went to so many places in my State of Florida that I didn’t know existed! I learned a lot such as RVing not that complicated (I did watch a lot of YouTube videos to get the general idea of what comes with RVing, a Class C is too big for me to drive so I will rent a Class B next time, loved all the helpful apps you guys recommend as they came in handy, learned who will not be invited on the next RV Trip-I’ll stick with my like minded relatives for a peaceful experience, and I loved the freedom of RVing. I don’t plan to retire within the next 10-20 years (I’m very young) but I now have this goal in mind and I Thank You Guys so much for planting this seed in my mind that will slowly grow into my dreams! I’m excited for the future technologies with Class B RV’s, and I’m now looking to buy a used Class B RV and some land to call my own. Thank You Guys! Love Watching Your Adventures and you guys take awesome footage! God Bless You and All Your Loved Ones!!

    Love your helpful videos! Do your kids get opportunities to interact with peers their age while on the road? Do they enjoy RVing as much as you guys?

    You are really inspiring in any way – one feel more active just by watching you. You are so sweet and kind and good at explaining and doing things. Thank you very much for all your inspiring videos. You are just so cool!

    That’s great that you talk about possible dangers associated with RVing. In the aviation world Threat and Error Management (TEM) is critical to safety. Identify the threat and make a defense. Checklists, post-it notes, talking out loud with the person your working with so they know your intentions, or asking what someone else thinks about a threat rather than going it alone and being wrong are all good defenses. Always develop a defense to known treats, and correct errors when they happen.

    The treats could be driving/towing an RV in weather beyond your comfort level, driving at night when you’re too fatigued. Threats are not the same for everyone. When someone is new to RVing, there could be more threats than seasoned full timers may have. Driving away from a campsite with shore power still plugged in is embarrassing at the least or very electrifying at the worst.

    Safe travels.

    Cheers

    Kids responsibilities: you guys gave me a great idea! Our 5 year old's "job" in the RV this summer will be to take out the trash & recycling every day. Once we show her where the dumpsters are, she is totally capable of doing this little task. We also use Lysol wipes in the RV, so that's a good job for little hands too.

    How do you homeschool your kids? Any specific online programs? Is it mainly self-guided for them and you help or are you actively involved?

    I am an engineer, and have worked remote from any office for 10 years. Sometimes I have to go to a client's office, but that is relatively rare. It is important to be connected, though!

    Yeah, right, RVing is great. Bad roads with big trucks tossing your RV back and forth, constantly having to stop for gas, finding an RV park that isn't near the highway and not ridiculously expensive. People in RV being over 55 and don't give a care about you or your RV. Once you explore one city, all the rest look the same. Think twice before deciding on this lifestyle.

    Great information. Monday's with Mom cracked me up! We live in our 21' travel trailer that turned out to be actually 19' of actual living space. That is home to me and I love knowing where everything is. There's not much randomness and it's super easy to keep it clean. We also stay in timeshare condos and right now we are house/pet sitting in a lovely condo in our home town. I work so much more to keep the condos clean because I clean as I go and now there's so much many more surfaces to wipe, sweep, and declutter. I love them both for very different reasons. Today I'm missing nature. In the trailer I see and hear the birds. I see and feel the wind. Never thought I'd miss the wind; however, a storm came through while we've been in the condo and I felt like I missed out on the experience of the changes brought by wind, rain and eventually snow since we are well insulated both from nature's sounds and temperature fluctuation.

    Again, this is a VERY GOOD review of what an RV life is all about! I really think that you are the best on the full time RV experiment at the moment – always on subject, always pertinent, always fun! Great work Mark & Trish! Can't wait to follow your next adventure! We are making notes of it all – 2022 is the target, and money will not be an object 😉 Happy New Year 2019! All the best and safe travels. Rémi from Montréal.

    Hey, I'm Ted. If you're ever in central FL again it may be time for another KYD meetup. Hopefully by then I'll have my own rig. One quick question. You guys mentioned a bunch of podcasts and reading ,material (a side from your own podcasts). Is there a place that you have that listed?

    How do you find balance between filming and just enjoying the moment? Sometimes I find it hard. Trying to capture the moments on film and be in the moment with family.

    I totally agree with giving kids responsibility. We are with in 6 months of full time but since the g-kids have been out of diapers they have joined us on our summer vacation for 3 weeks at a time in our tent, then pop-up, then camper and now Airstream. We would show them the first 2 days on the road what their job was and then off they went. It made them so confident! They were so serious about the firewood, the jacks, the water hose, watching the surge protector, purging water lines of air. Not to mention when you run into other RVer's they had something to add to the conversation because we all have stories!

    Thanks for the channel!
