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:
family of __
short description - 20 words max!!!
FOTR since ____ (include date tour ended if applicable)
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 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!
