Sticky FOTR Roll Call

Subject: FOTR Roll Call


As you may already be aware (at least I hope you already know about it) the FOTR site features 3 pages of families who are traveling on the road fulltime, plus one page of families who have travelled in the past.

However, I have only included those families with web sites up to this point. I am now going to expand and include a short description (no photo) of families who do not have web sites. I am hoping this will give us a more complete picture of all of the families on the road. Here is what I need:

  1. family name
  2. family of __
  3. short description - 20 words max!!!
  4. FOTR since ____ (include date tour ended if applicable)

Example:

Smith - Family of 5. We started in San Francisco and are traveling across the USA in a 5th wheel for 2 years. FOTR since: 12/2008 until 12/2010

You can post it here or send an email to me (familiesontheroad @ yahoo.com). Note if your family has a web site (and is not already listed) then please fill out the form. I am also taking updates to current listings this month.

I only list FOTR on the road on the site. Just drop me a line when you actually hit the road.
But don't let that stop you from posting on the forum!

I think this roll call is for full timers, but as for the rest of the forum . . .
OF COURSE YOU ARE WELCOME! (IMO) Really it is up to the MOD, but I see lots of other families in your situation on here, so I am pretty sure you are AOK! And Welcome!

Northam family of 5. Currently traveling around CA. Pulling a 2001 34" 5th wheel with a 2003 Ford F350 diesel dually. We can't wait to head south for the winter! We've been off and on the road since October of 2009.

Brewer family - Congrats on your new home! Something to consider - pulling a child mid year (at Christmas break) is not a bad thing to do. When we livied in a sitcks and bricks, we reviewed our school decisions each semester. Have fun planning!
