The Idea

Posted by Van on Saturday Jan 8, 2011

At the Ingalls' Schoolhouse, July 2010

The idea for this upcoming RV trip came last Summer when we were camping our way across South Dakota. We spent a day at the Ingalls’ homestead in De Smet (For you Little House fans: this is where Ma and Pa Ingalls ultimately stayed and where Laura met and married Almanzo). While exploring, we met a family who had been on the road in a big RV for just over a year, homeschooling their two children and seeing the country together. Jean and I had talked many times about all the places in the world we want to see with the girls, and the idea of spending several months traveling the continent in an RV really clicked for us. The more we talked about it, the more we wanted to make it happen. So, off we go.
