Our very effective recipe for treating eczema and dry skin. ourtravelingtribe.com

*this post contains affiliate links.  I love life on the road.  Some of the challenges of large family living have forced us to rethink how we do things, and in some cases, change how we do things, or what products we purchase.

Fishing in Georgia while filming for SpiegelTV | ourtravelingtribe.com

Over a year ago, we spent 3 days with a producer for the German magazine Spiegel, to film an online special for SpiegelTV, a news website.  We checked them out before we agreed to spend time with them, but still wondered how it would turn out.  The footage was for a filler clip, and honestly, […]

How we arrange the pantry in our RV. | ourtravelingtribe.com

While our family would consider ourselves resourceful, around our house having the right tool for the job is considered a must. Over the 6 years that we have been fulltime RVing and traveling, I have found this rule especially applies to the RV kitchen!  Cooking for 10+, in such a limited space, 3 meals a […]

6 Things We’ve Learned from 6 Years of Fulltime RVing…

Even little kids are great hikers! With the right equipment and some encouragement, these kids can put on the miles! | ourtravelingtribe.com

We get so many comments about how hard it must be, or how different it must be, to live in an RV compared to a house.    After 6 years, it all just seems very normal to us.  Last month our new RV was in the shop for warranty work.  While it was being worked […]

I receive a lot of compliments on our little girls’ swimsuits.  It’s not that they are extra special, or necessarily made of an adorable fabric, it’s that there is something charming about seeing little girls dressed like little girls…cute, feminine, and modest.  But mostly modest. Why is it fashionable for little boys to be wearing […]

Why we travel with a Berkey Water Filter…

A Berkey water purifier is perfect for RV use to make sure that no matter the source, you have safe drinking water. | ourtravelingtribe.com

Our RV has really big tanks – we can run with 110 gallons of fresh water on board.  And while that works great for us when we are back in Montana camping, and we can fill up with the well water we love, relying on other water sources doesn’t always work so great for long […]

Our family has been fulltime RVing for over 5 and a half years!  Even tho we have just 8 kids along for the ride right now, all 12 of our children have traveled fulltime with us.   During that time we have had good times and bad.  It seems like no matter what your life […]

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

Practicing shooting at the Clark County Shooting Range in Las Vegas, Nevada.

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 […]
