I've had 2 neighbors that have done this. Both of them sold their house and everything in it. Then did just what you did/about to do.

Keep us posted with pics.
Safe travels!

Thanks for all of the supportive responses. Sorry for posting and running, been a busy month. Closing on the house in 2 days, been working ourselves dog tires trying purge, pack, and move out of the house.

We don't have a definitive route yet. Going to Ohio for most of July (family). Then we'll head out west all the way to Seattle via WI, MN, SD, WY, MT, ID, then down the west coast, back through AZ, UT, CO on our way to Ohio for the holidays. In January we'll head to FL and work our way up the east coast as spring moves north. Around Memorial Day we'll go through OH, then back to Houston via KY, MO, AR. I figure around 14k miles roundtrip.

No such luck hitting the lottery exactly. I'm fortunate I can take 12 months off (from ExxonMobil as a geologist) and still get full medical benefits while gone and my wife has an amazing job that allows her to work from anywhere making great money helping people reach their health goals. We realize we're extremely fortunate to be able to prioritize spending time as a family and still have financial stability and healthcare.

We're setting up a blog but in the meanwhile anyone can follow along on Instagram via @welchpartyof3 and @pretty.much.winging.it

Packing some spinning and fly gear and will pop in here with pics of our catches from time to time.

Have you looked into Good Sam Road Club? Lots of RV'ers use it.

We've done the same thing and are in year 5 on the road. We are retired though.

You might think about changing your itinerary...doing the east coast in the fall to see the leaves change and avoid the spring tornado's. The west coast doesn't see as many severe storms as the east.
