I got this message from one of my Ohio Homeschool yahoogroups. It’s about a family who got “tired of it all” and decided to sell everything and hit the road in an RV with 4 kids, 3 dogs and a hamster.
They have a show on TLC, called Six for the Road, journaling their travels. It airs this week (website, dates & times below) and I’m looking forward to watching it… I never watch tv. And my apologies, lately I’ve been to sick (and getting sicker) to even do much on the computer. wah, I know.
Hi I was wondering if you could pass this information along to your group.
Hi my name is Kati Loud. My family and I are homeschoolers. We RV full time and we have a show airing on TLC called Six For The Road It is about our life and journey. One year ago we gave away and sold everything we own and bought a fifth wheel and hit the road. We realized that we became caught up in life and became so busy with daily routines that we needed to take back our life. So we did what we have always dreamed of. We decided to leave it all behind and we have never looked back.
We love roadschooling! We have enjoyed learning so much while we are on the road. We have been able to learn hands on in the most able places. We have been from Williamsburg to the Toilet Seat Museum. We have been to NYC and experienced the big city and we have been to a small town in Tennessee to help tornado victims try to put their life back together.
We have done this as a family and we have loved it.
It is hard to go from 3500 square feet to 300 square feet. We have four kids. Two girls 15 and 13 and two boys 12 and 10. We also have 3 dogs and a little hamster. Life in an RV can get really crowded and hectic but it is fun. The first 2 episodes air on October 29 Eastern Mountain and Pacific time zones are at 10:00pm and Central is at 9:00pm. Our next two episodes air on November 5th. Same times. Each night they will show 2 episode in a row. Please watch and help us show how many homeschoolers may be interested in a show like this. We are on right after Jon and Kate plus Eight. Our production company also does there show. Please pass this info along to anyone that you think may be interested. If you would like TiVo the show and even turn all your TV’s on to help our numbers:-) We also re- air that night at 1:00am if you want to TiVo that also 🙂
