A Team Family Adventures
The Andersons are an adventuring family of five living in their fifth wheel RV and traveling the country. In mid-2019, they started to minimize their life by getting rid of their possessions and in the process discovered they wanted more adventure and a simple lifestyle. They started working remotely, renting out their house and homeschooling their kids to make unforgettable memories all over the country.
The Roaming Nomads include Willi, Julia, their two kids and dog. They have covered over 105,000 miles in six years of full-time RVing. They started their journey in Maine and traveled down the east coast to Florida and then across the country to California and up the west coast and parts of the Midwest.
They move at their own pace while traveling, so sometimes that means staying in one place for just a day or two and sometimes they like to stay awhile to really get to know the place and what it has to offer.
They have a blog to journal the big stuff that happens throughout their adventure and the places that have visited, and they also post more regularly on Instagram with the day-to-day things that happen.
Tim and Amanda Watson joined the full-time RV lifestyle in the summer of 2012. They loved traveling and the memories they made which inspired them to live out this dream.
They set up a five-year plan to sell their house, minimize their possessions and start traveling, living and working in an RV. They wanted a lifestyle change that allowed them to explore mountains, different beaches and everything in between.
Their journey has taken them to 45 states over the last eight years, staying in all kinds of different types of campsites from national and state parks to parking lots. Follow the Watsons' journey on their blog and follow Tim and Amanda on Instagram so see more from their travels.
