Welcome to Our Rear View!

Hello world!  We are the Church family.  A family of 4 with 2 dogs.  Let me tell you a little bit about why we are here.  We are currently planning to hit the road for an extended period of time…

trying to figure out a new fifth wheel, road schooling kids, working from the road, pet care on the road, etc. and we came up with the genius (**cough**) idea to create a blog along the way.  So we spent an extended car ride coming up with cool names and talking about the subjects we want to talk about, and then my wife set up the site last night.  So now we have to actually do it, right?  

Yep…this is where the rubber meets the road so to speak… Of course you’ll get your typical campsite reviews and park/attraction reviews, but we are going all out!  

I’m Steve, the dad, and I’ll be filling you in on any honey-do projects or camper mods we work on, as well as some of the more technical things we have to deal with camper wise.  You’re also hopefully get a chuckle or two along the way. You’ll also find that I’m a quote-a-holic.  My favorites usually come in 2 flavors…insightfully reflective or childishly humorous.  You have been warned!  

My wife Karen will have plenty to say about finances and the unschooling of the crumb snatchers.  She’s been running that show for years now and really has some great ideas and projects that I’m sure she’ll share with everyone.  

Stephanie is our 11 year old television, reading and animal expert.  She’ll be providing plenty of show and book reviews I’m sure, as well as keeping you up to date on our monster dogs and their adjustment to camper life.  She’s also a hell of a baton twirler, and she is participating in the Junior Olympics this summer…I’m sure she’ll mention that too.  

Aaron is our 7 year old techno-geek.  He is addicted to anything mechanical, especially if it’s electronic.  He loves to read instruction manuals for the craziest things (even things we don’t own), so expect some really cool feedback from him.  He’s also a video game junkie and he’s learning to write code and program his arduino set.  

I’m hoping you will find this very interesting.  We’re glad to have you along, so buckle up and hang on tight as we prepare for the adventure of a lifetime!
