Introducing the Witte Museum (ASTC), San Antonio, TX…

One of the things that we love about traveling is all the opportunities that it gives us to learn about our country and its history!  One of the ways that we do that is to visit museums throughout the country, especially museums that focus on local history. The Witte Museum in downtown San Antonio, TX is […]

Living History is best learned hands-on! | ourtravelingtribe.com

Vermilionville; learning living history in the heart of Lafayette, Louisiana

Rvers don’t homeschool, they roadschool.  And by definition, ROADschooling means you have to hit the road! (ok, there isn’t really a REAL definition of roadschooling. 😉 )  We LOVE living history sites, so we are always on the lookout for them while we are traveling.  A favorite of ours is located in Lafayette, Louisiana; Vermilionville is […]

The Tribe hasn’t shared where we’ve been or what we are doing in awhile!  That doesn’t mean that things haven’t been happening, it’s just that after being on the road for over 7 years, we sometimes want a break from sharing! lol.  But, we’re back, ready to show you some of the fun places that […]

The Ticknor Tribe on 60 Minutes Australia…

Back in March of this year, The Ticknor Tribe pulled out of Shreveport, LA, and took a short break from our flood cleanup volunteering there, to spend a few days, in Dallas, with a film crew from Australia.  The producer was incredible to work with, and the crew was great!  We all enjoyed our time (and because they […]

Family Friendly Clark County Shooting Complex, Las Vegas, NV…

This year, we spent some time in Nevada.   Our oldest son came to travel with us for a few weeks, and we met him in Las Vegas.  Las Vegas isn’t exactly the most family friendly town – in fact, it’s one of our least favorite places to visit!  But, there are a few family-friendly […]

Phoenix RV Park in Salem, Oregon…

After we spent two wet and rainy weeks on the coast, near Pacific City, OR, we were ready for a change.   So we pulled up the jacks and drove to Salem a few days early.  We would be volunteering in Salem, but had a few days to kill before then. We had done some […]

Lilla Rose hair clips – the ultimate traveler’s hair products!

We have 5 daughters.  So years ago, when I came across a blog post about unique and beautiful hairclips that promised to hold their hair, ease my time spent styling, and were lightweight and durable, I ordered some sight unseen.  Since that time, we have been wearing the Lilla Rose hairclips non-stop!  About a year […]

How we support our travel lifestyle with family businesses…

The query that we field the most has to do with how we support our traveling lifestyle.  RVs are not cheap – to purchase, to maintain, to drive (7 mpg thankyouverymuch) – we have a fam of 10 to buy groceries and clothing for, and then include all the other incidentals that come with raising a […]

Using our RV lifestyle to enable disaster relief volunteering

There are a lot of reasons that we love our fulltime RV lifestyle, and the flexibility and opportunity it gives us are two of the main ones.  One opportunity that our flexible RV life has given us, is the chance to do volunteer work!  And some of our favorite work is disaster relief volunteering.  If […]

Oxygenics shower head mod… installing the Fury RV

This has to be our easiest and fastest mod ever, but it is also one of my favorites!!!  We had a regular Oxygenics shower head in our last rv, and while we had installed it, it had been years ago, and we had since forgotten how awful stock rv shower heads tend to be!  In […]
